ANALYTICAL PROCEDURE ELIMIN-OX


DR/890 Procedure

AP-60/890
SPECIFICATIONS
Method: Colorimetric (DR/890)
Range: 180 to 6000 100 ppb as ELIMIN-OX
Testing Time: 15 minutes

DESCRIPTION
The portable DR/890 colorimeter, an accurate,
simple method of colorimetric analysis, is utilized
to quickly analyze ELIMIN-OX concentration for
monitoring proper application levels. The test is
based on iron reduction chemistry and is simple to
perform. The ELIMIN-OX in the sample reduces
ferric iron to ferrous iron in direct proportion to the
ELIMIN-OX concentration. This solution then
reacts with Reagent 1 to form a purple color with
the ferrous iron.

ELIMIN-OX DR/890 PROCEDURE
Special Notes: Analyze sample as soon as it is collected. The temperature of the sample should be 72-82 F (22-28 C). Do
not use a copper-based sample cooler as copper interferes with this reaction. If the temperature of the sample is not in the
proper range, correct the result as follows:
EOx [9 X (C*1.8 - 45)] = EOx TC OR EOx [9 X (F - 77)] = EOx TC
