The HI708 Checker® HC (Handheld Colorimeter) provides a simple, accurate and cost effective way to measure nitrite. As an intermediate part of the nitrogen cycle, nitrites are present in a variety of sources, from drinking water to industrial water. Due to the harmful effects to the environment and aquatic life, nitrite levels must be closely monitored. Designed as a more accurate alternative to chemical test kits, the HI708 provides quick, accurate results in four easy steps:
- Easier to use and more accurate than chemical test kits
- Dedicated to a single parameter
- Small size, big convenience
- Ideal for: Water Quality, Environmental, Education, Aquaculture, Boiling and Cooling Towers
