Fluoride Test Strips 0-100+ppm (50 strips)

Price £18.99

Description

The Fluoride test strip detects Fluoride in water in steps of 0, 10, 25, 50 and 100ppm. This test strip is ideal for monitoring fluoride levels in drinking water.

The UK maximum contaminant level for Aluminium in tap water set by DWI/DEFRA is 1.5 mg/l (= 1.5ppm).

Too much fluoride in water can be harmful to humans and animals. The solution to be tested must have a pH of 0.5 in order for this test to be accurate. This can be achieved by using concentrated Hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid) to acidify the test solution. To confirm that this low pH has been achieved a pH test strip which covers the pH of 0-1.5 can be used. Click here to view our pH test strip measuring this low pH.

Hydrochloric acid should be available at a local hardware or pool/spa store, as well as at any chemical distributors, such as Fisher Scientific or VWR.

NOTE: The test strip result must be adjusted to compensate for the dilution used during the acidification process.

Suitable for: fresh water samples, including water from taps, wells, springs, boreholes, ponds, as well as rain water

How to Use:

  1. Acidify the water sample with hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid). The resultant pH must be at or below pH 0.5. (Take a note of the dilution ratio so that the test strip result can be adjusted to compensate for the dilution during the acidification process.)
  2. Dip the test strip into the pH adjusted water sample for 1 second.
  3. Remove and wait 10 seconds before matching with closest colour on colour chart.
  4. The result must be adjusted to compensate for the dilution used during the acidification process.

Contains: 50 strips

Sensitivity: 0, 10, 25, 50, 100+ ppm (mg/l)

Total Test time: 15 seconds
