Additional Reagent for Titratable Acidity in Water Titrator - HI84430-58
The HI84430 titrator is designed to determine both low and high range values of acidity in water. Water samples containing polyvalent cations (such as iron, aluminium, chromium, manganese, etc) may react slowly with the titrant, causing a drifting endpoint. It is necessary to add several drops of the HI84430-58 additional reagent solution (hydrogen peroxide) to such samples in order to increase the rate of hydrolysis of the metal ions present.
- Pre-Measured Solution
- Clearly marked expiration date and lot number
- Air tight bottle with tamper-proof seal to ensure quality
The HI84430-58 is a 30 mL bottle of hydrogen peroxide solution that is used to treat water samples containing hydrolyzable salts or polyvalent cations (such as iron, aluminum, manganese, and chromium) to accurately determine acidity values.
The determination of water acidity is based on the neutralization of all acidic species contained in water samples by titration with a basic titrant solution:
H+ + OH- → H2O
The endpoint of an acid base titration corresponds stoichiometrically to the complete neutralization of the acids present. Water acidity results from strong and weak acids as well as from the hydrolysis of salts. Due to these more complex mixtures, endpoints for water acidity are arbitrarily fixed on practical considerations. Unpolluted surface waters contain carbon dioxide as the main acidic component, and titration of these samples corresponds to the stoichiometric neutralization of carbonic acid with sodium hydroxide. The titration to pH 8.3 represents total acidity. The titration to pH 3.7 represents strong acidity from polluted water. If the samples are suspected to contain hydrolyzable salts or polyvalent cations (such as chromium, iron, manganese), it is necessary to pretreat the samples with HI84430-58 reagent.
The HI84430 titrator is designed to determine the acidity of waters by potentiometric titration in both a low range (15 to 500 mg/L as CaCO3) and high range (400 to 4000 mg/L as CaCO3). Both total and strong acidity can be determined by the HI84430. If the measured pH is lower than 3.7 both total and strong acidity can be determined. If the sample is greater than pH 3.7 then only total acidity can be determined.
