Iron and Manganese Analyzer – Joseph Lanner Overview
The Iron and Manganese Analyzer – Joseph Lanner can perform continuous analysis of metals, such as Iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn), 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 Iron and Manganese 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. This process analyzer was developed and built for the industrial wastewater and drinking water Industry. The main advantages are the combined measurement in one measurement step and the use of non-toxic and non-hazardous reagents.
Drinking water. Iron may be present in drinking water as a result of the use of iron coagulants or the corrosion of steel and cast iron pipes during water distribution. There is usually no noticeable taste at iron concentrations below 0.3 mg/liter, and concentrations of 1–3 mg/liter can be acceptable for people drinking anaerobic well water. Manganese is naturally occurring in many surface water and groundwater sources, particularly in anaerobic or low oxidation conditions. A provisional health-based guideline value of 0.5 mg/liter should be adequate to protect public health.
Toxicity. Iron is an essential element in human nutrition. Portable water should contain iron, not more than 0.2 mg/L. Groundwater may contain iron at concentrations of several milligrams per liter.
Metal is measured as a chelate complex between metal ions in the wastewater and sensitive spectrophotometric reagent dye. Change of the intensity of the visible light throughout the measurement chamber containing the formed metal complex is directly proportional to metal concentration.
