HI-3854 Zinc test kit information

Hanna's extended description

Zinc is normally introduced into drinking water through industrial effluents. In addition to drinking water, zinc is measured in surface finishing, boilers and cooling towers, water conditioning and effluent waters.

Colourmetric method.

The HI-3854 zinc portable test kit makes monitoring easy, quick and safe. Range (0.0-3.0 mg/L) Low range. Range (0.0-4.0 mg/L) (0.0-20.0 mg/L) Wide range.

Zinc reacts with the zincon reagent to form a brownish-green to blue complex in a solution buffered at alkaline pH.

Since other metals can form coloured complexes with zincon, cyanide is added to complex zinc and any other heavy metal present. Then, cyclohexanone is added to selectively free zinc from its cyanide complex so that it can react with zincon to form the final blue coloured product. The amount of colour developed is proportional to the concentration of zinc present in the aqueous sample.
