The Salifert Strontium Test Kit use to determine the Strontium content in seawater in an easy way.
Strontium plays an important role by accelerating coral and calcareous algae growth. Natural seawater contains approx. 7 - 9 mg/L strontium. Since the growth of corals and calcareous algae goes hand in hand with strontium and calcium depletion, depletion of calcium usually means depletion of strontium as well.
It is advisable to maintain a strontium concentration between 5 and 20 mg/L.
The Salifert Strontium Test Kit detects both ionically free and moderately complexed strontium. Measures in approx. 5 ppm increments.
For marine use only.
The Salifert Strontium Test Kit contains approximately 25 tests.
