  • Bromate analysis for the drinking water industry - Water and Wastewater - Drinking Water

    Bromate analysis for the drinking water industry

    Bromate forms during the ozonization of drinking water. Several international standards stipulate detection limits and test methods. Conductivity detection with chemical suppression allows the determination of bromate in the lower μg/L range. In the ng/L range, bromate can be detected by IC/MS coupling or post-column derivatization with potassium iodide and subsequent UV detection.

  • ph determination for soil testing - Soil and Groundwater - Soil and Groundwater Monitoring and Testing

    ph determination for soil testing

    Determination of the pH value provides information about the acid or base action of the soil solution. This in turn is enormously important for the nutrient supply and microbial activity of the soil. For example, many metals (trace elements) are considerably more mobile in acidic soils. If the soil pH values are very low, toxic levels can soon be reached and these can damage the roots of plants. On the other hand, excessively high pH values quickly lead to a shortage of trace elements because of immobilization.<...

  • RoHS analysis in electronic equipment - Electronics and Computers

    RoHS analysis in electronic equipment

    The RoHS directive stipulates maximum limits for various hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. Meeting the RoHS Directive requires reliable equipment and methods. As a leading manufacturer of precision instruments for chemical analysis, we are aware of these challenges.  For this reason, Metrohm offers you not only the most advanced equipment, but rather complete solutions for the particular tasks at hand.

  • Air quality monitoring - Air and Climate - Air Monitoring and Testing

    Air quality monitoring

    To estimate the effects of aerosols on health and climate, it is essential to know their chemical composition. Sampling is done using two different types of aerosol collector. The first type are filter collectors that are based on the deposition of suspended particles on surfaces; the second type are powerful aerosol collectors.

  • Laboratory instruments solutions for environmental industry - Environmental

    Laboratory instruments solutions for environmental industry

    The environmental challenges require internationally accepted standards, in which limits and test methods are defined. Metrohm instruments and applications comply with a lot of international environmental standards. Substances introduced into the environment are distributed among the environmental compartments water, soil (sediment), and air, as well as among the organisms living in them (biosphere). Only if we know the type and quantity of these contaminants can we protect the environment and its inhabitants.

  • Laboratory instruments solutions for food and beverage industry - Food and Beverage

    Laboratory instruments solutions for food and beverage industry

    Today’s food and beverages (F&B) are much more than just simple "organic fuels" needed for survival. Beyond their nutritive value, they are consumed for their taste or flavor. Increasingly, they are also a source for maintaining health and enhancing our well-being via high-quality nutrition. At the same time, with an ever-increasing number of processed foods, food quality and safety aspects are becoming more important. All the more because foods are highly complex materials – prone to degradation...

  • Laboratory instruments solutions for surface finishing industry - Monitoring and Testing - Laboratory Equipment

    Laboratory instruments solutions for surface finishing industry

    The coating and finishing of surfaces using electroplating techniques is a highly sophisticated process. Be it the finishing of metal parts or the coating of printed circuit boards, the quality required in the intermediate and end products is only achieved if the composition of the process baths is right. At the same time, rising costs of raw materials and energy make it absolutely essential to drive production as efficiently as possible. As a leading manufacturer of instruments for chemical analysis we know...

  • Laboratory instruments solutions for polymer and plastics industry - Plastics & Resins

    Laboratory instruments solutions for polymer and plastics industry

    Synthetic polymers and plastics are a mainstay of modern life. Because of their versatility and physical properties, plastics and polymers have conquered nearly every aspect of human activity: airplanes and cars, packaging of all kinds, medical devices and products, electronics, and countless more – without high-quality and high-tech plastics most products we use today in everyday life would look very different. Polymer production is a demanding process in which high-purity raw materials undergo complex...

  • Laboratory instruments solutions for chemical industry - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals - Fine Chemicals

    Laboratory instruments solutions for chemical industry

    Converting raw materials into more than 70 000 different products that are used in almost all industries, the chemical industry lies at the core of the global economy and, perhaps, modern civilization. There is hardly any industrially produced good that would exist without the chemical industry, all the more considering that it was not until the 19th century that chemistry, particularly organic chemistry, exploded with Wöhler’s urea synthesis. Within just a few decades, numerous important industrial...
