The HI717 Checker® HC (Handheld Colorimeter) provides a simple, accurate and cost effective way to measure phosphate. Phosphate is a common food additive that enhances flavor and acts as a buffering agent. Important for growth and development of plant roots, phosphate is also present in fertilizers. However, high concentrations of phosphates are detrimental to the environment; for this reason, it is closely monitored in both natural and municipal water systems. Designed as a more accurate alternative to chemical test kits, the HI717 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, Aquaculture, Education, Industrial, Agriculture
Phosphate Range 0.0 to 30.0 ppm Phosphate Resolution 0.1 ppm Phosphate Accuracy ±1.0 ppm ±5% of reading Phosphate Method adaptation of the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, 18th edition, Heteropolymolybdenum Blue method.
