Manganese Analyzer Georg C. Wagenseil Overview
The Manganese Analyzer Georg C. Wagenseil can perform continuous analysis of heavy metals, such as 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 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.
Natural sources. Manganese is one of the most abundant metals in the Earth’s crust, usually occurring with iron.
Industry. Manganese is used principally in the manufacture of iron and steel alloys, as an oxidant for cleaning, bleaching, and disinfection as potassium permanganate, and as an ingredient in various products. More recently, it has been used in an organic compound, MMT.
Drinking 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. Manganese is an essential element for humans and other animals. Adverse effects can result from both deficiency and overexposure. Manganese is known to cause neurological effects following inhalation exposure.
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 cuvette containing formed metal complex is directly proportional to metal concentration.
