NEW - Hanna Marine Alkalinity dKH Checker HI772

Visit our 24x7 online store at AquaCave.com for your aquarium supply needs!

Hanna Marine Alkalinity dKH Checker HI772

Features at-a-glance:
  • Easier to use and more accurate than chemical test kits
  • Dedicated to a single parameter
  • Small size, big convenience
  • Ideal for: Aquaculture & Aquariums, Water Quality
  • HI772 uses the same alkalinity reagent (755-26) as the HI755 alkalinity checker

The Hanna Marine Alkalinity (dKH) Checker® bridges the gap between simple chemical test kits and professional instrumentation. Chemical test kits have limited accuracy and resolution since they rely upon the human eye to discern differences in color. Professional instrumentation incorporates a light source such as an LED or tungsten lamp with a filter and a light sensing detector to precisely determine absorbance and ion concentration. This level of instrumentation also offers greater resolution and accuracy, but can cost hundreds of dollars. The Hanna Marine Alkalinity Checker® uses a fixed wavelength LED and silicon photo detector to provide the accuracy of professional instrumentation at the affordable price of a chemical test kit.

The HI772 Checker®HC (Handheld Colorimeter) provides a simple, accurate and cost effective way to measure alkalinity in degrees of calcium hardness, commonly abbreviated as dKH. Critical to marine environments, alkalinity not only provides the carbonate ion required for calcium carbonate skeletal regeneration of coral reefs, but it also acts as a pH buffer against large changes in acidity. Designed as a more accurate alternative to chemical test kits, the HI772 provides quick, accurate results in four easy steps.

How is this different from the HI755? It looks like it just does the ppm to dKh conversion internally, instead of having the user multiply by 0.056...I suppose it's slightly more convenient...but...
