HI-96746 Iron Portable Photometer, Low Range information

Hanna's extended description

Iron Low Range Portable Photometer

The meter uses an exclusive positive-locking system to ensure that the cuvette is in the same position every time it is placed into the measurement cell. It is designed to fit a cuvette with a larger neck making it easier to add both sample and reagents. The cuvette is made from special optical glass to obtain best results.

The reagent contains both a reducing and a complex agent: the first converts all but very most resistant forms of iron present in the sample to the ferrous (Fe2+) or soluble state; the second reacts with the ferrous iron to form the characteristic orange-coloured complex.

Also available as a full kit HI-96746C

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

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.

About iron

Iron is naturally present in water in low concentrations, but it reaches high concentrations in wastewater effluents. The iron concentration in water needs to be monitored because it becomes harmful above certain levels. In domestic water, for instance, iron can unpleasantly alter the taste, stain laundry, damage kitchenware and favour the growth of certain bacteria. Iron is also an indicator of ongoing corrosion in water cooling and heating systems. Moreover, iron is normally monitored in mining wastewater to avoid contamination.
