Hanna Instruments prides itself on its ability to help customers easily and accurately measure commonly required elements essential to their field including total and free chlorine.
It is important to note the difference between free and total chlorine. Free chlorine refers to available forms of chlorine, such as hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite, which are added to solutions for disinfection. When free chlorine combines with contaminants, it becomes combined chlorine, otherwise known as chloramines. Once chlorine is combined, it has a decreased ability to disinfect. The measure of total chlorine will always be higher than free chlorine, as it is the sum of both free chlorine and combined chlorine. Thus, measuring free chlorine is a direct indication of the effectiveness of sanitizing solution.
Hanna Instruments offers a wide range of instrumentation for measuring chlorine. From Chemical Test Kits (CTK) and Checker Handheld Colorimeters to single and multiparameter field meters and bench tops, Hanna has an accurate, affordable solution for nearly any free and total chlorine application.
Hanna's Free Chlorine Test Kit HI38018 measures low and medium range (0.00-0.70ppm and 0.0-3.5ppm, respectively), however some customers may be interested in measuring a slightly higher range of free chlorine. Hanna offers a Free Chlorine Portable Photometer HI96701 which measures a range of 0.00-5.00ppm free chlorine.
