HI-3824 Ammonia test kit for fresh water information

Hanna's extended description

Colorimetric testing is a method of determining the concentration of a chemical element or compound (organic or inorganic) in a solution with the aid of a colour reagent.

Our test kits measure the strength or weakness of a chemical presence according to the degree of colour saturation. Ie – if it is pale in colour, then the chemical concentration is low. If the colour is strong, then the chemical concentration is high. Simply add the reagent to the compound to be tested and match the colour gained against a colour chart included in the kit.


Ammonia test kit for fresh water



The Hanna HI-3824 chemical test kit is designed to measure concentrations of ammonia in rivers and drinking water reservoirs which indicates the presence of agriculture or urban pollution.

When the concentration of ammonia is high enough, it can alter the smell and taste of water. In industrial applications, high concentrations of ammonia can cause corrosion in pipes.

Ammonia is also monitored in aquariums and fish farming applications because of its toxicity to fish.

The HI-3824 ammonia test kit determines the ammonia concentration in water in several easy steps. The Nessler reagent reacts with ammonia, under strong alkaline conditions, to form a yellow coloured complex.



Kit supplied with
  • 20ml plastic beaker, colour comparison cube, 20ml ammonia reagent 1 and 20ml Nessler reagent

  • This test kits provides approximately 25 tests.
