HI-3846 Chromium VI Test Kit 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.

The HI-3846 portable Chromium VI test kit makes monitoring easy, quick and safe.

Chromium salts are widely used in industrial processes, in galvanic plants, in tanneries and chemical manufacturing plants. Chromium can therefore be found in industrial discharges and must be monitored because of its toxic nature.

Chromium VI reacts with Diphenyl-Carbohydrazide to form a purple product in an acidic buffered condition. The amount of colour developed is proportional to the concentration of chromium present in the aqueous sample.

Check out our Checker® HC Handheld Colorimeters – a highly-accurate and affordable way to test for chemicals using a gadget that sits perfectly in the palm of your hand and also fits nicely into your pocket.
