Determination of aluminium in water by fluorimetric method - Water and Wastewater

Aluminium is the most abundant metallic element and its salts are widely used as a coagulation treatment agent. At the same time increased levels of aluminium may lead to renal diseases and cause undesirable color and turbidity of distributed water. There are practicable levels of aluminium in water based on optimization of the coagulation process at drinking-water plants: 0.1 mg/L or less for large water-treatment facilities and 0.2 mg/L or less for small. Lumex Instruments provides accurate and selective fluorimetric method for the measurement of the mass concentration of aluminium in water samples using the FLUORAT-02 analyzer.
