Cat.No. 116754  Water for analysis
Sample preparation:
In a 500-ml standard volumetric flask place 2.5 ml of bath solution, which has been cooled to room temperature, fill up to volume with water for analysis and mix well. Take from this solution a further 5 ml and place in a second 500-ml standard volumetric flask and again fill up with water for analysis and mix.
Determine readily the nickel content in solutions diluted in this fashion.
Determine with the above mentioned test kits
Nickel content in g/l = analysis value in mg/l Ni x 20
