QUANTOFIX Nitrate/Nitrite Test Strips
For the fast and reliable determination of nitrate and nitrite in solutions. The easy dip & read procedure provides a reliable result within 1 minute.
Nitrite is an undesired byproduct in cooling lubricants. It allows the formation of carcinogenic compounds. Cooling lubricants are therefore regularly tested for nitrite. In natural and drinking water nitrite can lead to infant mortality and kill aquatic life. The EPA primary drinking water standard is 1 mg/L.
Nitrate is a byproduct of biological decay from plant and animal matter. High concentrations can be found in rural, farming areas where fertilizers are regularly used. Also, industrial effluents may contain nitrate in higher levels. Farmers use this test to control the nitrogen content in soil to estimate the amount of fertilizer needed. In ponds and aquariums nitrate is often tested instead of ammonium to control the water quality. Excessive nitrate concentrations in food can have adverse effects on food quality and consumer health. Regular nitrate tests in the food industry are therefore very important.
Directions for use
