HI-3831T Chlorine (Total) test kit information

Hanna's extended description

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.

Total Chlorine test kit

The HI-3831T total chlorine test kit is equipped with all you need to determine total chlorine levels in water.

The chlorination of water supplies and polluted waters is used mainly to destroy or deactivate disease-producing micro-organisms. It also serves to improve the quality of drinking waters, as chlorine reacts with ammonia, iron, manganese, sulphide and some organic substances.

Nevertheless, high amounts of chlorine will produce adverse effects, like formation of compounds which are potentially carcinogenic (e.g. chloroform) or harmful to aquatic life (e.g. chloramines). Thus it is essential to control that the proper amount of chlorine has been added in order to fulfil the primary purpose of disinfecting and to minimise any adverse effects.
