Original Papers


An automated method for the determination of chloride in surface, ground and domestic water based on the concept of flow-injection analysis is described. Samples of a widely varying chloride content up to 800 mg/l are analysed by using an automated prevalve dilution technique. The sampling rate is 92 samples per hour. The method is suitable for the analysis of chloride with a coefficient of variation of better than 1.2%. The measurement is based on the redcoloured iron thiocyanate complex.

Automatische Verdünnung vor dem Ventilsystem bei der Fließinjektionsanalyse

Automatische Chloridbestimmung in Oberflächen-, Grund- und Leitungswasser


Wasserproben mit stark schwankenden Chloridgehalten bis zu 800 mg/l wurden mit Hilfe der automatischen Verdünnungstechnik analysiert. Der Probendurchsatz betrug 92 je Stunde. Der Variationskoeffizient ist besser als 1,2%. Die Messung beruht auf der Bildung des rotgefärbten Eisenthiocyanatkomplexes.
