Total Phosphate Test Kit

June 19, 2012

CHEMetrics announces the availability of a new test kit for the determination of Total Phosphate in wastewater. Control and monitoring of phosphate concentrations in wastewater are critical before water is released back into the environment. Based on USEPA Methods 365.2 and 365.4 (1983), the test employs the persulfate digestion-ascorbic acid method to convert various forms of phosphate to orthophosphate. Results can be obtained using CHEMetrics V-2000 Photometer or a spectrophotometer capable of accepting a 16 mm cell.
