Titrets Cyanide Kits

Cyanide is used in many chemical and refining processes. It is found in effluent from electroplating and metal cleaning operations, coke ovens, steel manufacturing facilities, and gas scrubbers. Although cyanide can be safely removed by alkaline chlorination, its acute toxicity to aquatic life necessitates routine monitoring of effluents. The Maximum Contaminant Level for free cyanide in drinking water is 0.2 mg/L. CHEMetrics' cyanide test kits are applicable to the monitoring of effluents and surface water supplies. It is recommended, however, that the sample be distilled and hydrogen sulfide be removed prior to analysis.

Titrets Cyanide Kits

Titrets ampoules use reverse titration to quantify concentrations. After snapping the ampoule tip, the sample is drawn into the ampoule in small doses (with the Titrettor device included in each kit that precisely controls the sample) (Step 1), until a color change signals that the equivalence point has been reached (Step 2). The titration is stopped at the end point and the ampoule is held upright. The liquid level will correspond to a printed scale on the ampoule's outer surface (Step 3).

Kits include 30 ampoules with valve assemblies, a titrettor, accessory solution(s) (when necessary), a sample cup, and instructions. Material Safety Data Sheets are provided in test kits. E

ach Titret ampoule is 13 mm in diameter designed for titrimetric analysis. The ampoule contains vacuum-sealed liquid titrant and has a flexible valve assembly attached.
