CHEMetrics offers test kits employing the well-known Methyl Orange reagent to deliver sensitivity and accuracy within two minutes or less. Based on CHEMetrics patented Self-Filling Reagent Ampoule technology. Premixed. Premeasured. Precise. Each kit contains 30 tests.
The Methyl Orange Method
CHEMetrics 3-minute procedure for the determination of filming amine (aliphatic amine) uses the standard methyl orange chemistry and features a unique extraction technique. The extraction eliminates several steps required in other procedures and provides increased sensitivity.
The filming amine compound reacts with methyl orange to form a yellow-colored complex that is extracted into an immiscible organic solvent. Results are expressed in ppm (mg/l) octadecylamine.
The Filming Amine Test Kit K-1001 can be used in conjunction with the CHEMetrics Comparator Light Source (CLS), an independent light source for use in low-light conditions.
ASTM D 2327-80, Mono- and Dioctadecylamines in Water.
Filming amines are fed continuously into boiler feedwater to protect metal surfaces from corrosion caused by dissolved oxygen and carbon dioxide in condensate water. The amine forms a thin film on the surfaces that repels the potentially corrosive water.
