HI-96762C Free Chlorine Photometer Kit, Low Range information

Hanna's extended description

Photometer for Free Chlorine, low range

The HI-96762 meter measures the traces of free chlorine content in drinking water samples.

Offering high levels of accuracy as well as being water resistant, portable and easy to use, this meter is hugely popular with operators across the water industry. A measurement range of 0.000 to 0.500 ppm free chlorine makes it the optimum solution for quick, efficient and economical free chlorine measurement.

Also available as a full kit HI-96762C - scroll to bottom of page for further details

Ideal for

  • Water: measuring chlorine content in drinking water samples

Key features

  • Clear display messages make the instrument quick and easy to operate.
  • The powerful Cal Check calibration function means that there is no need to return the instrument to the laboratory to check its efficiency. Samples can be checked and validation confirmed at the press of a button.
  • Positive locking system ensures the cuvette is located in the same position each and every time is it placed in the measurement cell.
  • Auto shut off feature turns meter off after 10 minutes of non-use to save battery life.
  • Fully water resistant
  • Clear easy to use function buttons
  • Direct readout of parameter measured
  • Calibration check solution available - HI 96762-11

Designed for precision

With the Hanna calibration check validation function, users can verify the performance of the meter quickly and easily at any time. Using Hanna NIST traceable standards, it takes just a few moments to check the accuracy of the instrument and to recalibrate as and when necessary.

All new instruments are factory calibrated at source and the electronic and optical design of the Hanna photometers minimises the need for frequent calibration. The Hanna calibration check further minimises the frequency with which instruments need to be returned to the calibration laboratory for full servicing.

PLEASE NOTE: In some cases, samples may contain other parameters which may interfere with results
Interferences may be caused by:
  • Alkalinity: above 1,000 mg/L CaCO3 if present as bicarbonate (HCO3 sample pH < 8.3); above 25 mg/L CaCO3 if present as carbonate (CO32-, sample pH > 9.0). In both cases, it will not reliably develop the full amount of colour, or it may rapidly fade (negative 15 error). To resolve this, neutralise the sample with diluted HCl.

  • Acidity: above 150 mg/L CaCO3. May not be reliably develop the full amount of colour, or it may rapidly fade (negative error). To resolve this, neutralise the sample with diluted NaOH.

  • Hardness: in case of water with hardness greater than 500mg/L CaCO3, shake the sample for approximately 2 minutes after adding the powder reagent.

  • Bromine (Br2): positive error
    Chloride dioxide (ClO2): positive error
    Iodine (I2): positive error
    Oxidized Manganese and Chromium: positive error
    Ozone (O3): positive error
