WaterWorks™ 2 - Free and Total Chlorine
Water Test Kit
Accurate Easy to Use, State of the Art Technology
Chlorination of water supplies serves to destroy and
deactivate disease producing microorganisms. It is particularly useful in treating drinking water
resulting in an overall improvement of the water quality.
Chlorination also may introduce undesirable taste and odor
characteristics. To monitor chlorination and to minimize any adverse effects, it is essential that proper testing
is performed routinely.
Free chlorine is a very effective disinfectant. Total chlorine is
the combination of both free (available) chlorine and reacted chlorine, or chloramines. Chloramines are formed
when free chlorine reacts with organic compounds including ammonia. Chloramines are not effective sanitizers and
may cause eye and skin irritation in addition to a strong chlorine smell.
Chloramine levels can be determined by subtracting the amount of
free chlorine from the amount of total chlorine (example: free chlorine = 0.5 ppm, total chlorine - 1.0 ppm, thus,
1.0 ppm - 0.5 ppm = 0.5 ppm chloramine).
These Free Chlorine water quality test strips combine a wide range
of detection with our patented Free Chlorine indicator. Designed to resist interference from monochloramines, Free
Chlorine is the ideal product when testing in a food processing environment. Free Chlorine is perfect for
determining whether or not you have the correct amount of sanitizer present.
Sold in packets of 2 or 30 water quality test strips, all of
the reagents are impregnated on the test strip pad, and no external chemicals are needed to perform the water
