The Salifert Silicate Profi Test Kit use to determine the Silicate content in freshwater or seawater exactly and easily.
Silicate occurs especially in tap water or in purified water when the RO or DI unit is not functioning properly. Silicate not only results in diatom bloom but might also block some essential trace elements such as vanadium and molybdenum.
For freshwater, please do not use tapwater or osmosis water with more than 2 mg/l silicate content.
In seawater the silicate content should not be determined with these test kit.
The Salifert Silicate Profi Test Kit range is 0.03 - 30 ppm as SiO2.
The Salifert Silicate Profi Test Kit is a very fast, sensitive and accurate test, with two scales: an ultra low scale which is particularly useful for marine water and a high scale which is suitable for freshwater environments.
The Salifert Silicate Profi Test Kit contains approximately 60 tests.
