Method: Colorimetric, with test strips, 200 - 400 - 800 - 1200 - 1600 mg/L (SO42-), MQuant®
The MQuant® Sulfate test strips can be used to give a rapid estimation of the sulfate ion content of drinking and industrial water, as well as of effluent discharged, for instance, from electroplating works and leather goods manufacturers. Sulfate ions react with a red thorin-barium complex, releasing yellow thorin in the process. The sulfate concentration is measured semi-quantitatively by visual comparison of the reaction zones of the test strip with the color rows of a color scale. The test strips are perfect for pre-testing a sample in an economic and quick way to estimate the sulfate concentration and a possible dilution factor prior to using a quantitative method such as a Spectroquant® Sulfate test.
