The HI3817 is a chemical test kit that determines that uses titration, colorimetry, and direct measurement to measure six parameters common to water quality testing: alkalinity, chloride, hardness, iron, pH, and sulfite. The HI3817 is supplied with all of the necessary reagents and equipment to perform each analysis, and all reagents are individually available as they run out.
- Complete setup
- All required materials are included with the test kit, such as the pH tester, sample beaker, indicator and reagent bottles and packets, and color comparison cube.
- High resolution
- All tests provide a high resolution based on the expected range of measurement.
- Replacement reagents available
- There is no need to buy a new kit when reagents are exhausted. The reagents for each parameter can be ordered individually.
Significance of Use
Six of the most common parameters in water quality can be monitored with this combination chemical test kit. They include: alkalinity, chloride, hardness, iron, pH, and sulfite. These parameters are important in determining the corrosive characteristics of water due to carbonates and chloride. Sulfite is also critical to prevent pitting and oxidation of metal components. A high level of sulfite results in a lowered pH, which can also promote corrosion in drinking water infrastructure. This kit is ideal not only for professionals, but also for students studying environmental science, as it offers great performance and ease of use. HI3817 is equipped with all the accessories and reagents to perform multiple tests for each parameter. The pHep®, our popular pH electronic tester, is included for your convenience. This small and easy to use pH meter will provide more accurate and reliable pH readings than conventional litmus paper. The pHep® also has the added benefit of introducing students to the use of a pH meter.
