pH & ORP Buffers

Company Reference: 

Analytical Measurements offers buffers for calibrating analytical pH and ORP instruments in solution or powder form. Solutions for pH are available in pints (500 mL) for pH 3 to 12 or powder salts sold in packets. Solutions for ORP are available in pint bottles for 200 and 600 mV.
 

Laboratory Equipment

Company Reference: 

The MultiLab IDS line of laboratory instruments and smart sensors includes one-, two- and three-channel instruments that each measure up to three para-meters at a time, as well as smart digital probes for optical-based BOD5, pH, ORP and conductivity measurement. The line has easy-to-use and -calibrate menu-driven operation and improved data integrity and security.

Testing Kit

Company Reference: 

The SenSafe Water Metals Check test is a quick, accurate, inexpensive way to determine toxic metal levels in tap water. This patented test strip develops red in the presence of toxic metals above 10 ppb in only two minutes. It detects toxic +2 valence metals found in tap water. Because of its detection sensitivity, it confirms the need for water filtration or remediation. The test can be purchased for $19.99 for 50 tests or $5.99 for six tests with instructions and a color chart.

Private Well Protection

Hydraulic fracturing operations allow us to access valuable natural gas resources, but they also have the potential to affect another precious resource: water. Here Brian Oram, a professional geologist and founder of B.F. Environmental Consultants, discusses how fracking in Pennsylvania has affected private water wells.

A Strong Foundation

A company is only as good as the foundation it is built upon. In the Water Quality Assn.’s (WQA) case, the foundation of the organization is quite literally its laboratories. The Performance Lab, constructed in the basement of WQA’s Lisle, Ill., headquarters, conducts the first half of the testing of a unit seeking WQA certification. The Analytical Lab, also at the Lisle location, allows WQA to test samples on site in real time, providing the capability to see how a unit performs as it is running.

Wyoming, EPA to Investigate Drinking Water Quality Concerns

Water Resource Worries

Hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, is a method of extracting natural gas from shale formations. Fracking has been around for many years, but recently, combining it with horizontal drilling has made it economically practical for gas extraction. While natural gas presents the U.S. with options to become more energy independent, there also are concerns about the process’s impact on the environment.

Testing

Company Reference: 

The titration and ion chromatography system offers complete automation for testing properties and ions in drinking, ground, surface and wastewater. It minimizes operator time and simplifies sample analyses. The system combines the determination of up to 20 parameters from a single sample into an automated workflow. It determines conductivity, pH and alkalinity, and also can provide results for total hardness, ion balance and carbonate hardness.

Ultrapen PT3 is a new ORP and temperature tester. It is as accurate and stable as benchtop lab equipment and features “dip-and-scoop” sampling for standing bodies of water and vertical streams, providing real-time analysis before atmospheric and other environmental conditions can affect the chemistry of the sample. Constructed of durable aircraft aluminum, this pen is fully potted for extra protection with an easy-to-read LCD and one-button functions.
