EM Quant® Peracetic Acid Test, Catalog No. 10001/1

1. Method

Peracetic acid reacts witha phenol derivative to form a red-violet dye. The concentration of peracetic acid is measured semiquantitatively by visual comparison of the reaction zone of the test strip with the fields of a color scale.

2. Measuring Range and Number of Determinations

Measuring Range/Color Scale Graduation1) Number of Determinations
100-150-200-250-300-400-500mg/l peracetic acid 100

1) for measurement of concentrations >500mg/l peracetic acid see section 6

3. Applications

This test is suited for the selective determination of the peracetic acid concentration in disinfectant solutions, also in cases in which hydrogen peroxide is present.

4. Influence of Foreign Substances

This was checked - in the case of interfering ions up to concentrations of 1000 mg/l - in solutions containing 250 and 0mg/l peracetic acid. The concentrations of foreign substances given in the table lie below the limit at which the determination is interfered with:

Concentrations of Foreign Substances in mg/l or °e
Ascorbate 10
Fe2+ 10
Fe3+ 10
NO3- 1000
SO32- 100
Free Chlorine (hypochlorite) 10
Bound Chlorine (chloramine T) 5
Formaldehyde 1000
Total Hardness 38 °e
H2O2 1000

5. Reagents and Auxiliaries

The analytical test strips are stable at least up to the date stated on the pack when stored in the closed tube at +2 to +8°C.

Package Contents:

Tube containing 100 analytical test strips

6. Preparation

Samples containing more than 500mg/l peracetic acid must be diluted with distilled water.

7. Procedure

  • Remove 1 analytical test strip and immediately reclose the tube.
  • Immerse the reaction zone of the test strip in the measurement solution for 1 second.
  • Shake off excess liquid from the test strip.
  • Wait 10 seconds, then compare the color of the reaction zone with the color fields on the label. Determine with which field the color of the reaction zone coincides most exactly and read off the corresponding concentration value. If an exact color match cannot be achieved, estimate an intermediate value.
