    Zinc Analyzer - Johann G. Albrechtsberger Overview

    The Zinc Analyzer - Johann G. Albrechtsberger can perform continuous analysis of heavy metals, such as Zinc (Zn), and many other parameters in water. Technologies employed are colorimetric (photometric) and ion-selective electrodes (ISE). Direct measurements, standard addition, and titration support the ideal measurement strategy. The robust design and high-quality parts of the Zinc Analyzer guarantee a long lifetime and minimum maintenance efforts. Low consumption of reagents and very high reagent stability ensures person-free operation. Automated calibration and cleaning steps support this goal.

    Zinc is an essential trace element found in virtually all food and potable water in the form of salts or organic complexes.
    Natural sources. Zinc species are predominantly determined in the aquatic environment and in soils and sediments. Industry. Zinc is used principally in electroplating and semiconducting industry.
    Drinking water. Although levels of zinc in surface water and groundwater normally do not exceed 0.01 and 0.05 mg/liter, respectively, concentrations in tap water can be much higher as a result of dissolution of zinc from pipes. Drinking-water containing zinc at levels above 3mg/liter may not be acceptable to consumers.
    Toxicity. Zinc or zinc compounds are not listed as suspected carcinogens. Zinc compounds can produce irritation and corrosion of the gastrointestinal tract, along with acute renal tubular necrosis and interstitial nephritis.

    Metal is measured as chelate complex between metal ions in the waste water
    and sensitive spectrophotometric reagent dye. Change of the intensity of the visible light throughout cuvette containing formed metal complex is directly proportional to metal concentration.
