Analytics and Sample Preparation > Test Kits and Photometric Methods > Visual Tests for Semi-quantitative Analyses > Colorimetric Test Kits > MColortest™ for Very Low to Medium Concentrations Ammonium is a compound containing one nitrogen and four hydrogen atoms (NH 4 +). While ammonia is a neutral non-ionized molecule (weak base), ammonium is an ion carrying a positive charge. In addition, ammonia emits a strong odor, but ammonium does not smell at all. Ammonia is a colorless, pungent gaseous compound of hydrogen and nitrogen (one nitrogen atom and three hydrogen atoms, NH 3) that is highly soluble in water.

Ammonia that has not bonded with chlorine during chloramination disinfection is referred to as free ammonia (both NH 4 + and NH 3). At a neutral pH and ambient temperature, almost all free ammonia exists as NH 4 +. As the pH and temperature increase, the amount of NH 3 increases and the amount of NH 4 + decreases. When chloraminated water is released, free ammonia levels increase as monochloramine reacts with various organics and bacteria in the distribution system water, satisfying the chlorine demand. Increased free ammonia levels indicate the onset of nitrification. A sudden drop in free ammonia suggests that nitrification is in process and nitrite is being formed. The free ammonia value is useful in determining the amount of free chlorine needed to increase the monochloramine residual at a booster station. The free ammonia level can be reduced by adding free chlorine at a ratio of 5:1 as Cl 2:N to guide the process and help minimize nitrification potential. Total Ammonia Ammonia is an inorganic form of nitrogen that contains hydrogen. It is a plant nutrient often found naturally in water at low levels due to the decomposition of organic plant or animal matter. Higher concentrations in surface waters are toxic to aquatic life.

Why Monitor Ammonia?

Large pallet items like aquariums are deemed delivered successfully with no damage once the the driver has left the property. If a report of damage is submitted after the driver has left we may be unable to assist with replacements. We recommend refusing a damaged delivery, this is the fastest resolution.

Ammonia is an inorganic form of nitrogen that contains hydrogen. It is a plant nutrient often found naturally in water at low levels due to the decomposition of organic matter. When ammonia levels range too high, it usually signals contamination stemming from raw sewage, industrial effluents (particularly petroleum refineries), or fertilizer runoff. Total ammonia is the sum of both NH 3 (ammonia, the un-ionized form) and NH 4 + (ammonium, the ionized form). Total ammonia is what is measured analytically in water. Ammonia toxicity is influenced by pH and temperature. As pH or temperature increases, NH 4 + is converted to NH 3, and the toxicity also increases.Q: My Ammonia 2 reagent has turned blue, is it still okay to use? A: Our Ammonia 2 reagent can take on a blue colour with time, but it does not affect the performance or results of the test. As long as the test kit is still within date, you can be confident in the reliability of the results it produces. Ammonia in groundwater is normal, due to microbiological processes. However, the presence of ammonia nitrogen in surface water usually indicates domestic pollution. Excess ammonia can damage vegetation and is incredibly toxic to aquatic life, especially at elevated pH and temperature levels. Aqua Ammonia

Regulatory requirements mandate ammonia monitoring for diverse industries to protect downstream aquatic environments, such as wastewater, landfill, acid mine drainage and animal feeding operations, where ammonia is measured in effluent, leachate, and unintended discharges. Environmental scientists often test water bodies for ammonia to help them assess trends associated with other aquatic health indicators. The aquaculture industry frequently measures and controls ammonia concentration to keep fish and shellfish alive and healthy. The Specified Concentration or Value (SCV) for ammonia in drinking water supplies in the UK is 0.50 mg/l (ppm), and in Ireland is 0.3 mg/l (ppm). What is Ammonia?

Reference: ASTM D 1426-08, Ammonia Nitrogen in Water, Test Method A. APHA Standard Methods, 18th ed., Method 4500-NH3 C – 1988.Analytics and Sample Preparation > Test Kits and Photometric Methods > Areas of Application > Environment > Ammonium Q: My pH reagent has changed colour, is it still ok to use? A: Our pH reagent can change colour over time. It will start green, but can change to any colour on the colour chart. This is normal and you will still get accurate results. The Hanna Hanna Instruments-3824 chemical test kit is designed to measure concentrations of ammonia in rivers and drinking water reservoirs which indicates the presence of agriculture or urban pollution. Both the Nessler and salicylate methods are based on a reaction with molecular ammonia in a basic solution. If the original sample contained ammonium ions, the basic reagents would convert it to molecular ammonia and then it will react and contribute to the final test result. However, these simple ammonia tests do not include the ammonia that is in organically bonded amino groups. A true total ammonia test would include chloramines and require heating the sample in an acidic solution to digest the organic ammonia.
