The Hanna HI 3824 chemical test kit is designed to measure concentrations of ammonia in rivers and drinking water reservoirs which indicates the presence of agriculture or urban pollution.
When the concentration of ammonia is high enough, it can alter the smell and taste of water. In industrial applications, high concentrations of ammonia can cause corrosion in pipes. Ammonia is also monitored in aquariums and fish farming applications because of its toxicity to fish.
The HI 3824 ammonia test kit determines the ammonia concentration in water in several easy steps. The Nessler reagent reacts with ammonia, under strong alkaline conditions, to form a yellow coloured complex.
Kit supplied with 20ml plastic beaker, colour comparison cube, 20ml ammonia reagent 1 and 20ml Nessler reagent
