Hach Ammonia ISE Analysis Package
The Hach Ammonia ISE Analysis Package includes the Hach Ammonia Electrode which measures ammonia gas or ammonium ions in aqueous solutions that have been converted to gas by the addition of a strong base. The electrode is a complete electrochemical cell consisting of a glass pH electrode and a reference electrode.
The gas-permeable membrane separates the sample from a thin layer of electrolyte that is pressed between the pH bulb and the membrane. At high pH, ammonium is converted to ammonia gas. The gas diffuses through the membrane and causes a pH change in the thin layer of electrolyte. The potential across the pH glass changes as a result of the pH change and the electrode measures the change in potential. The measured pH change is proportional to the ammonia concentration in the solution.
The ammonia electrode will measure ammonia gas or ammonium ion (converted to gas by strong base) in a variety of aqueous samples. Applications include water, wastewater, boiler feedwaters, fertilizers, biological samples, fish tanks, and more.

A new study showing that Arctic clouds are sensitive to air pollution could pave the way for mitigating future problems. “Weather patterns in the Arctic are changing extraordinarily rapidly,” explained Dr. Timothy Garrett, an atmospheric scientist from the University of Utah, which recently completed the study. “We want to understand why so that we better understand their potential impact on lower latitudes where most of us live.” While scientists know that changes in carbon dioxide levels are the biggest player, they are increasingly realizing that clouds play an important role as well. Prior research has shown that air pollution, also referred to as particulate matter, naturally travels northward.Read More
If there's a single environmental concern that the American public has become more sensitive to in recent years, it's probably the threat posed by lead in water. The Flint, Michigan drinking water crisis—which has since been revealed as part of a national trend involving crumbling infrastructure —is also part of a global problem , with the World Health Organization identifying lead as one of ten chemicals posing a major public health concern around the world. Worsening the issue is the difficulty that has historically complicated the lead removal process .Read More
Since 1978, water quality experts have been applying technological advancements to rivers and tributaries in the Ohio River Valley in an effort to stave off the worst possible water emergencies—with a large measure of success. In the latest expansion of the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) Organic Detection System (ODS), a new water quality monitoring station in the Elk River will help American Water Company officials in Charleston, West Virginia to more readily identify contaminants in the river and prevent public health disasters. Defining the need The ORSANCO ODS system has been protecting water quality by detecting pollution at its source in real-time for decades.Read More
