Marine Low Range Nitrate Checker HC - HI781

SKU: HI781

CA$68.00

The HI781 is designed specifically to measure low levels of nitrate in a saltwater aquarium. The 0.00 to 5.00 ppm (mg/L) range is ideal for saltwater, reef aquarium maintenance. Like professional instrumentation that use a light source, filter, and light sensing detector, the Hanna Marine Nitrate Checker® uses a fixed wavelength LED and silicon photo detector to provide the accuracy of professional instrumentation at the affordable price of a chemical test kit.

  • Compact, Portable Design
  • Built-in Timer
  • Saltwater Compatible

Nitrate is a by-product of the Nitrogen cycle. Excessive amounts of Nitrates in a reef aquarium can promote the growth of undesirable organisms including algae and dinoflagellates while insufficient amounts can lead to starvation in which SPS and other corals will show signs including the loss of color and paleness. The HI781 Nitrate Checker HC is a handheld colorimeter that uses the Beer-Lambert principle to determine the concentration of nitrate colorimetrically. The HI781 is designed specifically to measure low levels of nitrate in a saltwater aquarium. The 0.00 to 5.00 ppm (mg/L) range is ideal for reef aquarium maintenance.

Designed as a more accurate alternative to chemical test kits, the HI781 provides quick, accurate results in four easy steps:

HI782 High Range Nitrate Checker vs HI781 Low Range Nitrate Checker

The HI782 was designed to quickly and easily measure nitrate levels for aquarist with higher-than-average nutrient levels. This includes saltwater aquariums that are fish-only or have corals that can tolerate elevated levels of nitrate at 30 ppm or more. Very low levels of nitrate are critical for many saltwater reef aquariums, as nitrate can cause damage and possible death to certain delicate corals and invertebrates. For this reason, the HI781 offers unmatched precision in the measurement of very low levels of nitrate (0.00 to 5.00 ppm). For freshwater samples, Hanna Instruments recommends using the HI97728 Nitrate Portable Photometer.
