K-9923 Zinc

K-9923 Zinc Vacu-vials Kit was designed to obtain Zinc levels from 0-15.0 ppm

Zinc Information


The K-9923 Zinc Kit was designed to accurately measure the levels of Zinc in water from 0-15.0 ppm. K-9923 uses the Zincon Method. CHEMetrics' method determines soluble zinc in drinking water and wastewater. Zinc reacts with the reagent zincon in a buffered alkaline solution to form a blue complex. Interference from other heavy metals can be eliminated by the addition of cyanide. However, for safety, cyanide has not been included in the reagent formulation. Results are expressed as ppm (mg/L) Zn.

Zinc deposits are present in much of the earth's crust. The metal provides an effective protective coating for steel (galvanized coatings) and is useful as an alloying agent. Zinc salts are useful as corrosion inhibitors in cooling water treatment formulations. The USEPA has established a Maximum Secondary Drinking Water Standard of 5 mg/L for zinc

Shelf Life: 8 Months

  2. Fill to the 25 mL mark in the sample cup with your water.Fill the sample cup to 25ml
  3. Add 8 drops of Indicator Solution to sample cup. Stir gently.
  4. Snap the end of the Vacu-vial in the water on the bottom/side of the 25 mL sample cup.Snap the tip of the ampoule on the bottom and side of the sample cup
  5. Mix the contents of the ampoule by tipping back and forth a few times.Tip the vacu-vial back and forth to mix
  6. Dry the vacu-vial and wait 1 minute for color development.Dry vacu-vial and then insert into the I-2019
  7. Place the vacu-vial ampoule into the device (flat end first) for readout.
