New Portable High-Spec Photometers For Water Analysis

Posted: Tuesday 4th April 2006

Palintest has introduced two new, high performance, fully featured portable photometers for water analysis. The 7100 and 7500 can accurately analyse all the major inorganic constituents of water together with treatment additives and pollutants. They are rugged, fully waterproof, easy-to-use and provide quick, accurate test results.

Both photometers are built around the Palintest range of water test reagents which uses light to measure colour changes in water samples treated with a reagent. They are accurate to 0.005 at 0.3 absorbency units (au) and resolution is 0.001au. The sample is simply placed in the unique adaptive cell holder and a button pressed. The cell holder automatically adjusts to any round tube size.

The 7100 and 7500 features automatic light wavelength selection for each of their pre-programmed test methods. They have easy-to-navigate menus and up to 30 user-definable test methods, providing full flexibility. The software also remembers the most recent tests, making it even quicker to use next time.

Sealed to IP67, the units run on standard AA batteries, or the 7500 can be powered through the USB port from the computer, or via a standalone adapter. Both photometers are available in two kits, a Standard kit and an Engineers kit designed specifically for mobile water service engineers. Each comes complete with a carry case and room to store the required reagents.

In addition, the 7500 can store up to 500 tests results in its onboard memory, with a full audit trail of time, date, and results in chosen units. Once back at base the test results are simply transferred to a PC by plugging it into the USB port and using the drag and drop file transfer utility.
