CHEMetrics is pleased to announce the release of its new Ozone Vacu-vials® Kit (K-7433) employing the Indigo method.  This CHEMetrics product enables bottled water producers to quickly and accurately test for residual ozone following the disinfection process.   

Ozonation is the most frequently used disinfection process in the bottled water industry.  It results in safe, good tasting and aesthetically pleasing bottled water, killing viruses and bacteria while reducing concentrations of iron, manganese and sulfur which contribute to taste and odor problems.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) have established regulatory standards to guide water producers in managing residual ozone in bottled water products.  The CHEMetrics Ozone Vacu-vials®Kit enables bottled water producers to test for ozone residual between 0 and 0.75 ppm.

Unlike competitors’ ozone tests, the CHEMetrics product employs an innovative self-zeroing feature that eliminates the need to generate a reagent blank every time tests are conducted.  This saves time and money in the laboratory.  Further, the results of this test can be read in any spectrophotometer that accepts a 13 mm round cell, enabling operators to use their existing laboratory equipment.

Key product features:

  • Cost savings of up to 62% based on low price and innovative self-zeroing test method that uses a single ampoule per test
  • A test range of 0 to 0.75 ppm for FDA required monitoring levels for bottled water manufacturers
  • A simplified testing procedure that saves valuable time in the laboratory
  • Operators receive precise test results in minutes
