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.
- Complete setup
- All required materials are included with the test kit, such as the color comparison cube and reagent packets.
- High resolution
- 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).
