Hanna's extended description

About the Bromine Portable Photometer

The HI-96716 meter measures the bromine content in water samples in the 0.00 to 10.00 mg/L (ppm) range. This portable photometer uses an exclusive positive-locking system to ensure that the cuvette is in the same place every time it is placed into the measurement cell.

In many countries, bromine sanitising has been introduced as an alternative for chlorine. Although it is not as strong as chlorine, bromine remains stable at higher temperatures (advantageous for heated pools and hot tubs), and higher pH levels. Furthermore, it has little reaction to nitrogen compounds, thus reducing the unpleasant odour and eye irritation problems associated with pool water sanitation. The main disadvantage of bromine is the slower acting disinfecting power, making it less suitable for larger pools.

Also available as a full kit HI-96716C

Ideal for

  • Water: measuring bromine content in swimming pools and hot tubs

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.

Specifications list


Package Sealed standards: 0.00 and 2.00 mg/L bromine
Quantity 1 set
PLEASE NOTE: In some cases, samples may contain other parameters which may interfere with results
Interference may be caused by: Chlorine, Iodine, Ozone. Oxidised forms of chromium and manganese. Alkalinity above 300 mg/L and acidity above 150 mg/L as CaCO3 require neutralisation since the colour could instantly fade. To resolve this, neutralise the sample with diluted HCl or NaOH.
In case of water with hardness greater than 500mg/L CaCO3, shake the sample for approximately 1 minute after adding the reagent.
