Aminotri (methylenephosphonic acid) or ATMP and five other phosphonates (Na5ATMP, HEDP, K6HDTMP, DTPMP, Na5DTPMP) may be determined titrimetrically using thorium nitrate and xylenol orange indicator. Fluoride is masked in the procedure to prevent interference. As with all titrations, the reading is taken at the first permanent colour change, which in this case is a purple-pink endpoint.
Phosphonates (also known as organophosphates and phosphonic acids) find wide application in industrial water treatment because of their ability to inhibit scale, sequester undesirable metals, control corrosion, and disperse particulate matter. For example, phosphonates are commonly used in cooling tower water treatment, boiler cleaning, industrial cleaning product formulations, vehicle wash formulations, and the manufacture of textiles and paper pulp.
- Drop-test kits contain all necessary reagents and equipment. Buret titration reagent pack contains an instruction and reagents only.
- Titrations do not require the ability to match colours, only the ability to see the permanent colour change at the endpoint of the reaction.
- Drop-test kits are practical for both on- and off-site testing.
- Buret titrations provide laboratory accuracy at an economical price.
- Waterproof instructions are printed on plastic-impregnated paper that resists fading and tearing.
- Colour coding of reagent caps to instructions helps prevent mishaps.
- Picture guides to colour transitions in the test reassure new users.
- Custom-molded, durable plastic cases provide safe storage for all tests.
- Proven chemistries are based on Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, APHA, Washington, DC, and/or American Society for Testing and Materials, ASTM, Philadelphia, PA. Some methods use proprietary chemistry developed by Taylor Technologies.
