The HI3854 is a colorimetric chemical test kit that determines the zinc concentration in samples within a 0.0 to 3.0 mg/L (ppm) range. The HI3854 is supplied with all of the necessary reagents and equipment to perform the analysis. The test kit contains enough reagents for perform 100 tests.
All required materials are included with the test kit, such as the color comparison cube and reagent packets.
Readings from 0.0 to 3.0 mg/L zinc are determined to 0.6 mg/L resolution.
Replacement reagents available
There is no need to buy a new kit when reagents are exhausted. The HI3854-100 reagent set can be ordered to replace the reagents supplied with the kit. This reagent set comes with 100 packets HI3854A-0 reagent and 2 (60mL) bottles of HI93731B-0 reagent.
Significance of Use
Zinc is widely used in alloys (brass, bronze, and dye-casting alloys), in galvanizing iron and other metals, also as a fungicide. It is also an essential growth element in human diet. But with concentrations higher than 5 mg/L, it gives a bitter taste to water and opalescence to alkaline water. Zinc can enter the domestic water supply from the deterioration of galvanized iron and dezincification of brass. Note: mg/L is equivalent to ppm (parts per million).
