OK, so maybe not ‘new’, but having spoken with the manufacturers of this product, we can safely say that a whole lot of people who could really use this product do not know of its existence.
For years people conducting tests for certain varieties of oxidizers (Free Chlorine, Chlorine Dioxide, Bromine, Iodine, and Permanganate) have relied upon DPD-1 tablets, DPD-1 powders and DPD-1 liquids to help them obtain accurate, repeatable results.
Now, however, an easier method of adding DPD-1 reagent to test samples has become available on FilterWater.Com, an online retailer of water quality testing and water quality improvement products.
Why consider switching to DPD-1 ReagentStrips?
- The United States Environmental Protection Agency has deemed the DPD-1 ReagentStrip test procedure equivalent to USEPA method 330.5 for wastewater when used in conjunction with a Palintest Chlorometer 1000 equivalent meter (i.e. the eXact Chlorine Photometer).
- The United States Environmental Protection Agency has deemed the DPD-1 ReagentStrip test procedure equivalent to USEPA method Standard Method 4500-Cl G for drinking water when used in conjunction with a Palintest Chlorometer 1000 equivalent meter (i.e. the eXact Chlorine Photometer).
- eXact DPD-1 Reagentstrips deliver a precise dose of DPD-1 reagent into a 10 mL sample without the need to count drops (DPD-1 liquids).
- Working in the field with DPD-1 Reagentstrips becomes much easier since testing personnel will not have to worry about small or large gusts of wind blowing away their reagent as they attempt to add it to a sample (DPD-1 powders).
- Due to the ‘dehydrated nature’ of DPD-1 Reagentstrips, they will dispense rapidly and easily into hard and cold water without the need for laborious, time consuming tablet crushing (DPD-1 tablets).
- As long a the test instrument (i.e. meter or test kit) uses as standard 10 mL sample size, an eXact DPD-1 Reagentstrip will provide consistent test results regardles of who made the test kit/meter.
If you use DPD-1 on a regular basis we think you owe it to yourself to give eXact DPD-1 ReagentStrips a try.
Note: For those who know a thing or two about DPD, you may find yourself wondering why we didn’t compare the DPD-1 ReagentStrip to an old school method of reagent delivery called ampuoles which involves breaking glass tips off into test samples. Ahem… Breaking of glass in order to perform testing. Need we say anything more about ampuoles?
