Easy-To-Use Waterproof Photometer Ideal for On-Site Testing



Erlanger, KY (August 5, 2006) - Palintest has introduced another new, high performance, fully featured, portable photometer for water analysis. The 7100 replaces the company's successful Photometer 5000 and enables advanced instrumental analysis of an extensive range of water tests. It is highly portable, fully waterproof, floats and is extremely rugged in design. It is also very easy-to-use, provides quick, accurate test results and is ideal for on-site testing in any application.

The photometer is fully integrated with the whole range of Palintest water tests and uses light to measure color changes in water samples treated with a reagent. It is accurate to ±0.005 at 0.3 absorbency units (au) and resolution is 0.001au, removing the inaccurate results that using a comparator color chart can give due to variations in operator eyesight or lighting conditions.

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 features automatic light wavelength selection for each of the pre-programmed test methods. It has easy-to-navigate menus, and the software also remembers the most recent tests, making it even quicker to use next time.

Sealed to IP67, the unit runs on standard AA batteries. The photometer is 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, providing a complete all-in-one on-site analysis kit.
