Why Buy From Fondriest?


The Hach Phosphate Pocket Colorimeter II Filter Photometer is a true go-anywhere instrument. It is lightweight, battery operated, and suitable for extended field work or quick, on-the-spot process monitoring. It allows user calibrations, offering the capability for creating user-defined calibration curves or performing a standard adjust.

The instrument comes factory programmed, and no manual calibration is ever required. Simply zero the instrument with a blank, insert the reacted sample, and read the result. The Range Indicator icon on the display indicates either the instrument range or the parameter being tested. Record the ten most recent data points with time stamp - no need to record results manually.

The Pocket Colorimeter II offers accuracy and reproducibility comparable to expensive lab instruments, but is designed for a long working life in harsh conditions. A long-lasting LED is used as the light source, and low power requirements assure long battery life.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
What measurement methods are USEPA accepted for reactive phosphorus?
Both PhosVer 3 Powder Pillows or PhsVer 3 Phosphate AccuVac Ampuls are USEPA accepted methods of determining reactive phosphorus and can be used for NPDES reporting. These methods are adapted from the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater and are considered equivalent.
Can samples be stored for later analysis?
Immediate analysis will provide the best results. However, samples can be preserved for up to 48 hours when stored at 4 degrees Celsius (39 degrees Fahrenheit), and should be warmed to room temperature before testing.

300,000-gallon sewage spill has surprisingly minor impacts in Maryland's Mill Creek

On May 28, 2014, an Anne Arundel Community College student stopped on the banks of Mill Creek in Arnold, Maryland, for an ongoing weekly water quality sampling effort there. This week, someone from the county health department was standing on the other bank. "Are you here sampling because of the spill?'" the county worker said, according Sally Hornor, biology professor at the college. "And he says, 'What spill?'" The night before, the Mill Creek Pumping Station lost power and spilled 312,000 gallons of sewage into the headwater of the creek — a tidal tributary to the Magothy River, which flows into Chesapeake Bay.

Creek Freaks program educates students in stream and watershed science

For teachers looking to integrate hands-on environmental education into their lesson plans, the Izaak Walton League of America's Creek Freaks program can make that a little easier. This stream and watershed science program comes with a built-in curriculum with an eye toward education standards. There's even a jet-setting coordinator ready to train teachers and informal educators in the program's classroom and outdoor activities. "I run Creek Freaks training workshops wherever I'm needed or wanted," said Erin Johnson, a clean water fellow with the Izaak Walton League. In the past year, she's hosted workshops and conference sessions in New York, Iowa, California and Virginia, to name a few.

Scientists say duckweed removes nitrogen, phosphates from water

Researchers at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences are investigating duckweed’s potential as a bioremediating agent, according to the Charlotte Observer . They are looking specifically at its ability to remove nitrogen and phosphates from water, both of which are linked to harmful algal blooms. So far, the study is moving forward on a small scale. Researchers using bowls about a foot in diameter load water full of ammonia and nitrogen and then track how much duckweed grows in response. Water in the bowls is tested every few days to monitor changes of the added substances. At the end of three to four weeks, researchers say the duckweed has routinely grown noticeably larger and levels of ammonia and nitrate are almost non-determinable.
