Brand New Handheld Chlorine Tester for Potable Water
Palintest Ltd., the leading company in water quality analysis, has launched a new digital Chlorometer for fast, accurate and easy chlorine level measurement. The new product uses the tried and tested DPD standard method in conjunction with a photometric analyser to give near-instant results. This method produces highly accurate results, and is not subject to interpretation errors that can come with a purely human visual colour judgement.
The new Chlorometer is very easy to use, with just 4 intuitive buttons and a menu that uses universal symbols instead of individual languages on its LCD display screen. While its small size (150 x 65 x 40mm) and light weight (200g) make the unit ideal for in-field and on-site testing, its accuracy (± 0.02 @ 1 mg/l) makes it suitable for bench use in both laboratories and treatment plants. Test ranges are 0.01-5.0 mg/l for Free and Total Chlorine levels, and 1-250 mg/l for Chlorine HR concentrations.
With an IP67 rating, the instrument is robust and waterproof, and can be supplied in either a hard or soft carry-case that also holds a store of reagents and test tubes. It uses only 2 AA batteries, giving around 5,000 readings thanks to its low power operation and auto switch-off setting when not in use. The zero reading is held in memory between uses, or can be reset for each test, while the new narrow band wavelength filters provide unparalleled wavelength accuracy for a handheld monitor.
