#90721 ALUMINUM (Zirconium) Test Paper

$31.00/box of 100 strips (20 x 70 mm)

The test paper allows the quick and easy detection of aluminum. In the presence of aluminum (Al3+) it shows bright red spots on a yellow background.
Using a different procedure, the test paper can be used for the determination of zirconium.

#91307 QUANTOFIX® Aluminum

$49.90/box of 100 strips with reagents

This test allows the quick and easy determination of Aluminum in solutions. The test strips come with all necessary reagents so that the measurement can be started immediately. Within 2 minutes one gets reliable results.
Aluminum is the third most abundant element in the Earth’s crust. Naturally, it only occurs in chemical compounds. In early stages of water treatment, aluminum compounds called alums are used as coagulation aids. QUANTOFIX® Aluminum is used to check the integrity of the filtering system.

Aluminium is the most common metal in our anthroposphere and after oxygen and silica even the most common element of the earth’s crust. Because of its big affinity to oxygen, aluminium does not exist in elemental form in nature, but in different oxidized compounds.

In swimming pools, aluminium salts are used as flocculant for the water treatment. For drinking water, the WHO recommends a guide value of 0.2 mg/L Al3+ . In accordance to the EU council guideline 98/83/EEC, the threshold value for drinking water is 0.2 mg/L Al3+. In natural water, the concentration of aluminium compounds is even low, but in waste water aluminium can appear in higher concentrations, e.g. at electroplating companies or paper mills. Different national regulations tolerate 2 – 3 mg/L Al3+ in effluents from various industries (metal, electroplating and printing industries).
