HYDRATE ALKALINITY Test Kit
The HYDRATE ALKALINITY Test Kit contains everything needed to measure boiler water hydrate alkalinity. The presence of hydrate alkalinity in boiler water ensures that any calcium hardness in the presence of phosphate or magnesium hard- ness in the presence of silica will be in a form that is easily removed by blowdown.
The easy drop count titration method provides accurate re- sults. After barium chloride is added to remove interference from phosphate and carbonate, the sample is then titrated to a phenolphthalein endpoint with sulfuric acid N/10. Results are expressed as ppm OH.
One kit provides approximately 200 tests when the OH alkalinity is 40-65 ppm.
