Chlorine and chlorination measurement is one of the most important cases in disinfection of drinking water, aquaculture ponds, water complexes and all industrial tanks and laboratories, a device used to measure free and total chlorinem Chlorine meter is.
Chlorination can be done visually with a chlorine test kit or digitally with higher accuracy using a reagent solution and an optical chlorination mechanism.
How chlorinometers work Chlorination is
the most common method of disinfecting water. The use of chlorine and its compounds is currently the main cause of disinfection of drinking water in all cities of the country.
Chromatography by colorimetric method is the most common method of measuring residual chlorine. The basis of this method is to add a reagent called DPD to water containing chlorine and then measure the concentration of chlorine due to the change in color of water that tends to purple and based on the color created, the amount of residual chlorine in the water is measured.
of chlorometers In general, chlorometers using colorimetric techniques are divided into two categories.
1- Ophthalmic chlorometers: Using chlorine test kit, chlorination is done visually and by changing the color.
2- Electronic (digital) chlorometers: Accurate measurement of chlorine values is performed using reagent solution and optical mechanism.
There are various types of ophthalmic and electronic chlorimeter kits available in the market today, and the companies that produce these types of devices have created different specifications for their devices. Considering the importance of accuracy and precision of chlorometry and the scope of chlorine measurement for health and drinking purposes and its effect on the health of consumers, it is very important and necessary to pay attention to the parameters mentioned in these devices.
Application of chlorinometers
• Measurement of free and soluble chlorine and pH Drinking water, aquatic complexes, aquaculture ponds, etc.
• Measurement of free residual chlorine and residual chlorine of total water tanks in industries and laboratories.
Important parameters in choosing a chlorometer
• Accuracy of chlorometry
• Scope of chlorination
• Capability Temperature measurement
• Ability to automatically electronically calibrate
• Ability to store chlorination results
• Ability to be waterproof
