Water of good quality is of paramount importance for everyone. The new application brochure offers a comprehensive selection of water quality testing methods. These ready to use methods are designed for the Titration Excellence line, an ideal base for easy to operate and highly automated water analysis systems.
Water is essential to all known forms of life. More than 70% of the earth's surface is covered with water. However, water of suitable quality is a limited resource. Therefore, water testing is a priority task and performed by a huge number of labs all over the world. Water analysis is a firmly established territory of titration and related techniques. The classic test parameters, such as hardness or alkalinity, have already been determined for decades applying titrimetric methods.
The new application brochure of METTLER TOLEDO features methods such as:
- Total hardness of tap water
- p- and m-value of tap water (alkalinity)
- Chloride determination from low to high concentration
- Fluoride content in water
- Potassium determination in water
- Chemical oxygen demand COD in waste water
- Residual chlorine in Javel water
and some more test parameters. Procedures, results, statistics, instrument setup, reagents, tips and remarks are explained. Additional notes describe automated systems for the testing of tap water or purified water, the Gran evaluation and the uncertainty of the hardness titration.
All methods of the brochure apply the models of METTLER TOLEDO's Titration Excellence line. These models are an ideal base to build fully automated water analysis systems. Thanks to the method concept and the color Touch Screen, operation is made really easy. A single sample or an entire series of samples can be started with a single touch to the Short Cut: True One Click™ Titration.
METTLER TOLEDO's offer for the analysis of water includes:
- Potentiometric titrators of Titration Excellence line
- pH meters
- Conductivity meters
- Dissolved oxygen meters
- Ion sensitive electrodes
- Sample changers and other accessories
All instruments have been specifically designed to support water testing on the spot or in the lab. They are compliant with the relevant standards. Operation is truly easy and possible even by unskilled operators. Ergonomic design and user guidance is positively perceived and avoids errors and fatigue.
