Alkalinity in water, also known as buffering capacity, is the combination of carbonate, bicarbonate, and hydroxide ions. Typically, alkalinity is measured using the Titrimetric Method. Now, WaterWorks Total Alkalinity (TA) test strips provide the user with a quick dip-and-read alternative. With a wide range of detection, WaterWorksTM Total Alkalinity is ideal for a variety of industries including: municipalities, wastewater treatment facilities, boiler & cooling tower operations, and other process waters. Having all required reagents impregnated on the test strip pad ensures a minimum amount of error. Additionally, no powders, liquids, or test vessels are required, making the test ideal for use directly at the process or on the shop floor. For more information, see pH section.
A single test strip has been designed with two separate test pads: one for pH and the other for Total Alkalinity measurements. This test is an alternative to wet chemical tests since it gives reproducible results for each test separately. Test range is from 6.0 to 9.0 for pH and 0-360 ppm (mg/L) for total alkalinity.
To use, dip one test strip into a water sample for 10 seconds then remove. Immediately match the pH test pad color, then match the total alkalinity test pad color. There are no chemicals to mix, results are obtained in 30 seconds, and the test strips are safe to use with no hazardous chemicals (no MSDS equired).
