The I-2001 Dissolved Chlorine Meter is designed for accurately and quickly measuring chlorine in water levels from 0 - 5.00 ppm. This device uses the DPD Method for testing. Using this method free chlorine oxidizes DPD (N,N-diethyl-p-phenylenediamine) to form a pink colored species in direct proportion to the chlorine concentration. Other halogens, ozone and halogenating agents will produce high test results. Chlorine at concentrations significantly above the test range may prevent proper color development causing low test results. The results are then displayed on the monitor in ppm (mg/L) of chlorine present.
This device has LED display for precise and accurate readout and is easy to use. Once the I-2001 has been purchased the cost per test is only $1.02.
