General description

Method: colorimetric with color-disk comparator 0.10 - 0.20 - 0.35 - 0.50 - 0.75 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 6 mg/l Al MQuant®
The MQuant® Aluminium test (formally MColortest®) measures aluminium in e.g. groundwater and surface water, seawater, drinking water, industrial water, waste water and percolating water.

In weakly acidic, acetate-buffered solution aluminium ions react with chromazurol S to form a blue compound. Due to the intrinsic orange coloration of the reagent blank, the measurement solution is orange-red to red in color. The aluminium concentration is measured semiquantitatively by visual comparison of the color of the measurement solution with the color fields of a color disk. The test evaluates the color reaction based on the transmitted light method. So even turbid and colored water samples can be analyzed without further preparation.

The color disk is made of very durable, lightfast plastic, thus suitable for industrial areas and wet environments.
Using the refill pack 1.18452 containing all the reagents, the original test kit can be used for a very long time, making it a particularly economical and ecological system.

The test can be used for the determination of aluminium in
  • Groundwater and surface water, seawater
  • Drinking water and mineral water
  • Waters from aquaculture
  • Boiler and boiler feed water, cooling water
  • Process water
  • Industrial water
  • Wastewater and percolating water
  • Electroplating wastewater
  • Swimming-pool water
