Applications: Analytical water sampling techniques, requiring a controlled amount of Sodium Thiosulfate as a de-chlorination agent, are ideal applications for Sodium Thiosulfate Tablets. By neutralizing free halogens, the tablets prevent destruction of bacterial organic material prior to analysis. One tablet is intended for potable, domestic, water sampling of 4 oz (120mL). When used for recreational waters, wastewater, surface or irrigation waters, tests should be run to determine the required number of tablets.
Sterilization with excess heat or radiation may cause tablet color changes without affecting efficacy.Characteristics & Properties:
