Chemistry: Selective and sensitive and non toxic reagents!
Reagents and chemistry used with Seibold Wasser COMPOSER Analysers are free from toxic compounds. The “Green Thumb” project started in 2006 and delivered its first products in 2008. Now our complete SEIBOLD COMPOSER product line has been introduced to the market.
Seibold Wasser’s Analyser series COMPOSER is based on colorimetric measurement technology. Measured concentration is a function of color, formed by a complex of metal and reagents (buffer and dye). Colorimetric laboratory standard methods for heavy metal analysis are based on toxic and hazardous chemicals.
Many of our clients in drinking water plants state the strong need for non toxic reagents to reduce risk of operation and production.
The trend towards green products for environmental care additionally supports this initiative. In 2010 SEIBOLD Wasser started with investigation and development of new reagents for heavy metal analysis.
Green Thumb Project
- Iron (Fe2+/3+)
- Manganese (Mn)
- Chromium (Cr3+/6+)
- Copper (Cu)
- Cadmium (Cd)
- Lead (Pb)
- Nickel (Ni)
- Zinc (Zn)
The main important positive side effect of non toxic reagents is low total cost of measurement (TCM). Costs for shipping, handling and wasting of non toxic liquids are reduced.
Fortunately this reagent set is available also for other vendors’ analysers. Please ask if your vendor of choice is supported.
