Why Nitrite Test kit ?
The HI3873 is a chemical test kit that uses the chromotropic acid method to measure nitrite. The HI3873 is supplied complete with all of the reagents and equipment necessary to perform approximately 100 tests.
- All required materials are included with the test kit, such as the glass cuvette, color comparison cube, and reagent packets.
- Readings from 0.0 to 1.0 mg/L are determined to 0.2 mg/L resolution.
Replacement reagents available
- There is no need to buy a new kit when reagents are exhausted. The HI3873-100 can be ordered to replace the reagents supplied with the kit.
Significance of Use
Nitrites can be harmful to aquatic organisms even in low concentrations and for this reason, they are closely monitored in aquaculture facilities. In cooling towers, however, an adequate amount of nitrites is necessary to prevent corrosion. In high concentrations, they can be harmful to the environment and to humans. They are, therefore, normally monitored to verify the quality of water for domestic use, as well as lakes and ponds.
Nitrites are an intermediate product in the nitrogen cycle and are produced by ammonia oxidation with water, or even originate in industrial waste directly. They must not be present in drinking water.
