HI-96705 Silica Portable Photometer information

Hanna's extended description

Silica Portable Photometer



The HI-96705 meter measures the silica (SiO2) content in water and wastewater in the 0.00 to 2.00 mg/L (ppm) range.

Silica is found in all natural waters in the dissolved mineral form. Silica is only slightly soluble in water; solubility and therefore the form of silica in water depend on the pH level of the water and on the minerals containing silica in contact with water.

Silica's presence in industrial applications is undesirable since it causes scale. In particular, high pressure turbines are highly affected by this factor.


Ideal for


  • Water: heating systems, reverses osmosis plants

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.
