#90753 Potassium Iodate starch paper

roll of 5 meter length $16.10  

The test paper allows the rapid detection of sulphit and sulphur dioxide. The paper is used in food analyzing laboratories. The reaction is as follows:
2 IO3-+ 5 SO32- + 2 H+→ 5 SO42- + I2 + H2O
Sulphurous acid or sulphites reduce potassium iodate to free iodine. With starch, iodine gives a characteristic blue-black color. For a detection of sulphite with high sensitivity we recommend Sulfit Test paper (REF 90763).

Color reaction: white → blue-black Limit of sensitivity: 5 mg/L SO2

#91306 QUANTOFIX® Sulphite

box of 100 strips $39.50  

This test strip is for the rapid and reliable determination of Sulfite in solutions. The easy dip-and-read-procedure provides a reliable result within 20 seconds.
In process and boiler water, sulfite is used as an oxygen scavenger. To avoid over treatment, the concentration needs to be controlled, regularly. These tests are also used to control the Sulfite concentration in foodstuff treated with sulfur compounds (SO2, HSO3-, SO32-) for longer shelf-life. In the process of wine making the control of sulfite is important to control production and quality of the wine.
