Aluminium Sulphate IS EN 1302 Analysis
Is your Liquid Alum 8.0% as Alumina (Al2O3)?
Did you know that Specific Gravity alone is not an appropriate measurement of Alumina content?
Chemifloc Ltd announce that they have sourced an independent laboratory that can now carry out analysis as directed by IS EN 1302.
IS EN 1302 directs that Aluminium should only be measured by EDTA/CDTA complexation and not by techniques such as ICP or similar. This is recommended because of the high margins of error that any other methodology creates due to the massive dilutions that would be required and also other mitigating interferences.
BHP Laboratories, New Road, Thomondgate, Limerick are now in a position to provide this service of independent analysis as directed by IS EN 1302. They can be contacted at www.bhp.ie

Guidelines on the purchase of Water Treatment Chemicals
Increased public awareness about drinking water quality emphasises the need for the producer of public drinking water to minimise drinking water contamination risks which could arise from the use of unsuitable treatment chemicals.
To this end the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) has adopted into Irish Law the guidelines for the purchase of Chemicals used for treatment of water intended for human consumption, which have been prepared by the European Committee of Standardisation (CEN). The Irish standard reference number is I.S. CR 14269:2001 and copies of this are available from NSAI, Dublin, Tel. 01 8073800.
