K-2103 Chloride

K-2103 Chloride Vacu-Vials Kit is used to determine Chloride levels from 0-40.0 ppm.

Chloride Information


The K-2103 Chloride Kit was designed to accurately measure the levels of Chloride in water from 0-40.0 ppm. K-2103 uses the Ferric Thiocyanate Method. The Chloride Vacu-vials® test employs the ferric thiocyanate chemistry. Chloride reacts with mercuric thiocyanate to liberate thiocyanate ion. Ferric ion reacts with thiocyanate ion to produce an orange-brown thiocyanate complex in proportion to the chloride concentration. Results are expressed as ppm (mg/L) Cl-

Chloride is the most common inorganic anion found in water and wastewater. The Maximum Secondary Contaminant Level for drinking water for chloride is 250 mg/L. Natural sources of salt are the ocean and various salt deposits above and below ground. Chloride is very corrosive to most metals in systems with elevated pressures and temperatures such as boilers and oil-drilling equipment.
