Hanna Instruments Water Analysis Division has released the C 203 multi-parameter photometer for aquaculture. Monitoring and controlling parameters such as the oxygen level as well as pH and nitrate content in water is vital in ensuring profitable fish production.
Accurate control can prevent disease, increase production and even reduce the premiums on crop insurance. Research personnel, fish farm operators and wildlife specialists now have one compact and easy-to-use meter to keep a close tab on the most important parameters in aquaculture. Simply take a sample of water and place it in the unit to be zeroed. Add reagents to it and place it back in the HI 83203. The meter will then show the relevant value in mg/L or µg/L in clear digits on a large LCD. There is no need to match colours, calibrate probes or change membranes.
The HI 83203 is supplied with two cuvets, a bottle for dissolved oxygen testing, batteries, a 12V dc adapter and instructions.
