Phosphates are in many products we use everyday. Most people don’t realize phosphates are used to enhance the flavor and tartness of cola drinks, as a buffering agent to control pH in antifreeze, and to delay the darkening of cut potatoes used for french fries. Phosphates are also used in detergents and cleaning fluids for their ability to soften water and remove soil deposits.

Phosphates are an important fertilizer used in agriculture to enhance the growth and development of plant roots. However, high concentrations of phosphates in agricultural runoff can cause environmental pollution and are a primary cause of eutrophication. Local laws govern the use of phosphates and the discharge levels into streams.

The HI97717 uses an adaptation of the amino acid method to measure phosphate concentrations of up to 30.0 mg/L (ppm). When the reagent is added to samples containing phosphate, the sample will turn a blue hue; the greater the concentration, the deeper the color. The associated color change is then colorimetrically analyzed according to the Beer-Lambert Law. This principle states that light is absorbed by a complementary color, and the emitted radiation is dependent upon concentration. For high levels of phosphate, a narrow band interference filter at 525 nm allows only blue-green light to be detected by the silicon photodetector and omits all other visible light emitted from the LED lamp. As the change in color of the reacted sample increases, absorbance of the specific wavelength of light also increases, while transmittance decreases.

photometer optical system

 

  • LED that generates very little heat.
  • 8 nm narrowband interference filter that is accurate to +/- 1 nm.
  • Reference detector that modulates the voltage to LED for consistent light output. 
  • A concave focusing lens that reduces errors from imperfections in the cuvette.

HI97717 FEATURES/BENEFITS:

Stable Light Source:

  • The internal reference system of the HI97717 photometer compensates for any drifts due to power fluctuations or ambient temperature changes. With a stable source of light the readings are fast and stable between your blank (zero) measurement and sample measurement.

High Efficiency Light Source:

  • LED light sources offer superior performance compared to tungsten lamps. LEDs have a much higher luminous efficiency, providing more light while using less power. They also produce little heat, which could otherwise affect electronic stability. 

High Quality Filters:

  • Improved optical filters ensure greater wavelength accuracy and allow a brighter, stronger signal to be received. The end result is higher measurement stability and less wavelength error.

Greater Light Yield:

  • A focusing lens collects all of the light that exits the cuvette, eliminating errors from imperfections and scratches that may be present in the glass. The use of the convex lens reduces the need for indexing cuvettes.

CAL Check Functionality:

  • Hanna’s exclusive CAL Check feature allows for performance verification and calibration of the meter using NIST traceable standards. Our CAL Check standard vials are developed to simulate a specific absorbance value at each wavelength to verify the accuracy of subsequent readings.

 

Large Cuvette Size:

  • The sample cell of the HI97717 fits a round, glass cuvette with a 25 mm path length. The relatively long path length of the sample cuvette allows the light to pass through more of the sample solution, ensuring accurate measurements even in low absorbance samples.

Intuitive Dot Matrix Display:

  • The HI97717 is designed with a backlit, graphic LCD. With virtual keys, a battery status indicator, and error messages. Users will find the meter interface intuitive and easy to read. A dedicated help key provides information relating to the current meter operation, and can be used at any stage in the setup or measurement process to show contextual help.

Auto-off Protection:

  • The meter uses three common AA batteries that allow for about 800 measurements to be taken. The auto-off feature automatically shuts off the meter after 15 minutes of inactivity in order conserve battery life.
