NH-N meter analyzer is mainly use for rapid test to get the ammonia nitrogen ion concentration in the water, using international standard method.Portable Ammonia nitrogen colorimeter is eco-friendly, the test is fast and the result is accurate.

1.Why do we test for ammonia in water?
Water acts as a Bronsted acid when it reacts with ammonia. This means that whenammonia dissolves in water, a tiny amount of ammonium is produced. The amount of ammonium generated depends on the pH, temperature and concentration of dissolved salts in the water.
2.How do we test for ammonia?
Testing for ammonium ions. Ammonia has a characteristic sharp, choking smell. It makes damp red litmus paper turn blue. It forms a white smoke of ammonium chloride when it comes into contact with hydrogen chloride gas, from concentrated hydrochloric acid.
3.How does ammonia get into the water?
Ammonia gets into water due to fish excretion sending it directly into the water.Ammonia is also caused by dead animal in the water. There are three types ofammonia, total ammonia (NH3) free ammonia (NH4+) and ammonium (NH3). Freeammonia is the type of ammonia that is highly toxic to fish.
4.How can ammonia affect water quality?
When ammonia is present in water at high enough levels, it is difficult for aquatic organisms to sufficiently excrete the toxicant, leading to toxic buildup in internal tissues and blood, and potentially death. Environmental factors, such as pH and temperature, can affect ammonia toxicity to aquatic animals.
5.Is ammonia in drinking water bad?
At levels in air greater than 100 ppm it can cause serious injury to such tissues.Ammonia is toxic to some fish and other aquatic organisms at concentrations below 1 mg/l (ppm) in water. ... As little as one teaspoonful of 10% ammonia solution can be lethal.
