Test Kit monitors quality of treated wastewater.

Press Release Summary:




Model SP304 includes all tests required to ensure that final effluents meet discharge consent limits. Using 0-30 PV (Permanganate Value) test, kit assesses general quality of final effluents and their suitability for discharge. Turbidity and suspended solids are measured visually using 2 inspection tubes, and 4-8 pH test highlights acidic or alkaline trade wastes. Kit comes with all necessary tablet reagents and a -10 to +50°C thermometer.

Quick and Simple Test Kit for Final Waste Water



Erlanger, KY: Routine monitoring of the quality of treated waste water can be easily accomplished with the SP304 test kit from Palintest. The kit includes all the tests commonly required to optimize the efficiency of waste water treatment plants and to help ensure that final effluents meet discharge consent limits.

The tests have been designed to deliver reliable results quickly. The equipment is simple to use and needs no formal operator training in water analysis. Tests are equivalent to methods recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency.

To assess the general quality of final effluents and their suitability for discharge, the Palintest PV Permanganate Value (0-30 PV) test is a simplified version of the standard AO method. A universal 4-8 pH test ensures that biological waste water treatment processes are operating within optimum ranges. This test will also highlight especially acidic or alkaline trade wastes in the raw effluent inflow.

Turbidity and suspended solids are measured visually using two inspection tubes graduated in 5-25 and 30-500 turbidity units. Probable BOD (biochemical oxygen demand), COD (chemical oxygen demand), and TOC (total organic carbon) can all be derived from the result of the Permanganate value test. These values are derived from known relationships obtained experimentally for both domestic waste water and industrial effluents.

The SP304 Waste Water Effluent test kit comes complete with all necessary tablet reagents and a -10 to +50°C thermometer.
