ANALYSIS OF THE FLOW CHEMISTRY.
The analysis of anions in drinking water has traditionally applied the environmental ion chromatography which has been gaining all the acceptance of the wastewater analysis. Some of the anions which are analyzed by this include Bromine, Chlorine, SO4, NO4 and also NO2. The detection limits suffer in case the samples end up having dissolved solids or even organics. When one wants to eliminate the interferences, all it needs is the dilutions. The can be issues with the interferences when relating to the flow chemistry. Analyzation of the solution can be done with the flow chemistry without requiring any dilution at all. However, the high concentration of the chloride interferes with the determination of the amounts of the Nitrite. One can always decide to preserve any samples of the Nitrate as it always requires a high sulfate level of a sample dilution. Since preserved samples can never be analyzed by the ion chromatography, Nitrates should always be tested before 48hours are over.
The flow methods becomes in terms with the sulfuric acid as the fluoride can never be combined with the ion chromatography at any levels which are below 1.mgl. it’s also advisable that they require deviations from the procedures. However, methods for P of the flow chemistry are always sensitive since the interferences become absent more often. Flow chemistry can easily determine on the forms of P in a solution. Sulfate is difficult when it is at low levels since determining it in high chlorides brings scales to be in the responses as well. If any dilutions are not done with the samples, the high content in the salt brings retention which at times makes the sulfate to be identified as the phosphate from the data systems.
Even though the ion chromatography is an excellent method, it also needs to have a detector which is accompanied by a separate column than having the use of anions. The flow chemistry methods always utilizes the type of the detector the same way it utilizes the other color methods as well. A way is always provided by the ion chromatography in which the determination of the drinking water and anions are unsurpassed in a method. The flow chemistry can allow automated analysis of any samples which might be difficult for the non- metals and also anions too. Flow chemistry can be done with the automation of extractions, distillations and also the digestion. Accurate level of the chloride can be prevented by high dilutions so as to be able to dilute copper, Aluminium,and also destroy the column of the ion chromatography. The sulfate requires high levels even though the samples of the nitrates cannot be preserved.
