General description

(free chlorine) Method: colorimetric, DPD, with color card and comparator block with long test tubes 0.010 - 0.025 - 0.045 - 0.06 - 0.08 - 0.10 - 0.15 - 0.20 - 0.30 mg/l Cl₂ MQuant®
The MQuant® Chlorine test (formally MColortest®) can be used for the determination of free chlorine.

The test can be used in
  • Drinking water and mineral water
  • Waters from aquaculture
  • Wastewater
  • Electroplating wastewater
  • Disinfectant solutions

This test is not suited for seawater.

In weakly acidic solution free chlorine reacts with diethyl-p-phenylenediamine (DPD) to form a red-violet dye. The chlorine concentration is measured semiquantitatively by visual comparison of the color of the measurement solution with the color fields of a color card.
The unique brilliance of the print and their fine color graduation allow precise analyses, even at the lower end of the concentration range. Due to the long test tubes a sensitive measurement range can be covered. Using the refill pack 1.14977 containing all the reagents, the original test kit can be used for a very long time, making it a particularly economical and ecological system.
