The OndaVia Hexavalent Chromium Analysis consumables provide fast, easy chromate measurements. The bench-top instrument consumes single-use, disposable analysis tests that provide a fast, easy-to-understand measurement of chromate levels in water. The method is specific to the Cr6+ ion, enabling differentiation from other chromium oxidation states. Whether used to measure treatment system performance or as part of a site survey, an OndaVia Analysis System provides fast, easy-to-understand chromate measurements. In contrast to the alternative of laboratory analysis, an OndaVia system gives you the on-site results needed for an immediate response.
Applications for Hexavalent Chromium Analysis
Hexavalent chromium, Cr(VI), is a toxic metal compound that is used in various industrial processes. Exposure to this chemical can have serious health implications, including lung cancer, asthma, and other respiratory problems. The OPAL-106 is a compact form-factor instrument designed for quantitative analysis of hex chrome, while our ORCA-based systems offer on-line, semi-continuous, automated analysis.
1. Occupational Safety and Health Compliance:
Many industries, such as metal plating, welding, and construction, involve exposure to hexavalent chromium. Analyzers allow regularly monitoring of workplace air quality, ensuring compliance with occupational safety and health regulations.
2. Environmental Monitoring:
Hexavalent chromium can contaminate soil and water from industrial discharges. Analyzers help environmental agencies and companies in monitoring and managing hex chrome levels in the environment to prevent pollution and protect ecosystems. Moreover, analysis methods help ensure compliance and avoid regulatory fines.
3. Water Quality Testing, Treatment and Remediation:
The analysis of hexavalent chromium is crucial to ensure compliance with regulatory standards. Bench-top analyzers provide a quick and accurate method for testing water quality and safety. Bench-top analyzers are valuable for monitoring hexavalent chromium levels and assessing the effectiveness of treatment processes.
4. Industrial Process Control and Quality Assurance:
Industries that use hexavalent chromium in their processes, such as plating and tanning, need to monitor and control hex chrome levels. Electroplating industries require precise control of hexavalent chromium concentrations to maintain product quality, ensure consistent coating thickness, and reduce the need for rework. In metal fabrication and welding, hexavalent chromium can be produced as a byproduct, and exposure to welders can be a concern. Bench-top analyzers help assess worker exposure and safety measures.
5. Rapid Response to Hazardous Waste Management Incidents:
Hazardous waste generators can use bench-top analyzers to determine if waste materials contain hexavalent chromium, aiding in proper waste classification and disposal. Moreover, a bench-top hexavalent chromium analyzer enables quick on-site testing to assess the extent of contamination and take immediate corrective actions.
