The determination ranges of the silica analyzer vary from trace μg/L to 150 mg/L using the (optional) internal dilution module.


Soluble silica reacts with the molybdate ion in an acid medium to form a green-yellow colored silico-molybdic acid complex that in its turn is converted to a blue complex with the addition of the reducing reagent. Oxalic acid is added to minimize the phosphate interference. The absorbance intensity is proportional to the silica concentration in the sample and is determined at 850 nm.
