The Palintest Hydrogen Peroxide HR test provides a simple means of monitoring Hydrogen Peroxide levels in water over the range 0 – 100 mg/L.
Hydrogen Peroxide reacts with Potassium Iodide under Acid conditions to release Iodine which gives a yellow solution.
A catalyst is used to speed up the rate of reaction.
In the Palintest Hydrogen Peroxide HR test, the reagents are provided in the form of two tablets.
The test is simply carried out by adding one of each tablet to a sample of the water.
The intensity of the colour produced in the test is proportional to the Hydrogen Peroxide concentration and is measured using a Palintest Photometer.
