K-1510 Ammonia

K-1510 Ammonia Kit was designed to obtain Ammonia levels from 0-1 ppm and 1-10 ppm

Ammonia Information


The K-1510 Ammonia Kit was designed to accurately measure the levels of Ammonia in water from 0-1 ppm and 1-10 ppm. K-1510 uses the Direct Nesslerization MethodThe 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.

  2. Add 2 drops of Stabilizer Solution and stir gently. 
  3. Snap the ampoule tip.
  4. Mix ampoule by inverting several timesTip the vacu-vial back and forth to mix
  5. Dry the ampoule, and wait 1 minute for color development.
    Dry vacu-vial and then insert into the I-2019
  6. Obtain results using the appropriate comparator and finding the best color match.
