K-1503 Ammonia Vacu-Vials Kit is used to determine Ammonia levels from 0-7.00 ppm.

Ammonia Information

$32.00

The K-1503 Ammonia Kit was designed to accurately measure the levels of Ammonia in water from 0-7.00 ppm. K-1503 uses the Direct Nesslerization Method. The test kits employing the well-established Nessler reagent* to determine ammonia concentrations are applicable to drinking water, clean surface water, good-quality nitrified wastewater effluent, and seawater. In some waters, calcium and magnesium concentrations can cause cloudiness of the reagent. Adding a few drops of stabilizer solution (Rochelle Salt) will prevent this cloudiness. References recommend distilling samples prior to analysis. Results are expressed as ppm (mg/L) ammonia-nitrogen, NH3-N. 

Shelf-life: although the Nessler reagent is stable, its high alkali content attacks the glass ampoule. The resulting precipitate interferes with color comparison. We recommend stocking quantities of CHEMets® and VACUettes® ampoules that will be used within five months. A two-month supply of Vacu-vials ampoules is suggested. Refrigeration will dramatically extend the shelf-life of these products.

 

*Contains mercury. Dispose according to local, state or federal laws.

  3. Fill to the 25 mL mark in the sample cup with your water.Fill the sample cup to 25ml  


  4. Add 2 drops of Stabilizer Solution and stir the sample cup.
  5. 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
  6. Mix the contents of the ampoule by tipping back and forth a few times.Tip the vacu-vial back and forth to mix
  7. Dry the vacu-vial and wait 2 minutes for color development.Dry vacu-vial and then insert into the I-2019
  8. Place the vacu-vial ampoule into the device (flat end first) for readout.
