Nickel is extensively used in electroplating, the manufacturing of steel, electronic devices, ceramics and coloured glasses. It plays a vital role in many processes of applied sciences and fundamental sciences.
Nickel is seldom found in natural waters, but is often present in wastewater as a direct by-product of metal plating baths, and as a corrosion by-product of stainless steel, nickel or cobalt alloys.
The most serious effects of nickel exposure include lung cancer and nasal sinus in people who have breathed nickel dust while working in nickel refineries or in nickel processing plants. Other lung effects including chronic bronchitis and reduced lung function have been observed in workers breathing nickel. The levels of nickel in the workplace were much higher than background levels. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined that some nickel compounds are carcinogenic to humans and that metallic nickel may possibly be carcinogenic to humans. The EPA has determined that nickel refinery dust and nickel subsulfide are human carcinogens.
The HI726 Checker®HC is extremely simple to use. First, zero the instrument with your water sample. Next, add the reagent, shake gently until complete dissolution. Last, place the vial into the Checker®HC, press the button for 3 seconds. The display will show the countdown prior to the measurement. When the timer ends the meter will perform the reading and display concentration in g/L of nickel. It’s that easy.
