Palintest Releases Handheld Chlorine Tester for Potable Water

Chlorometer uses DPD testing methods for easy and accurate results

For chlorine tests in laboratory, treatment plants and field applications, Palintest offers the Chlorometer handheld chlorine tester. Using the DPD testing method in conjunction with a photometric analyzer, it produces near-instant, accurate results without extensive product training or data interpretation that could cause error, according to the company.

The Chlorometer is operated using four buttons and a menu in universal symbols instead of individual languages. The waterproof (IP 67) unit can conduct tests ranging from 0.01 to 5.0 mg/L for free and total chlorine levels. The last 10 test results are stored in the device’s memory, for easy comparison.

The energy-efficient instrument operates on low power with automatic shutoff; under typical use, two AA batteries last for 5,000 readings. The unit’s memory maintains calibration between uses, or can be reset for each test. The Chlorometer comes with either a hard or soft case to store the instrument reagents and test tubes together.
