Abstract:

A permanganate colorimeter instrument to monitor the quality of MUST product water has been developed and successfully tested at the breadboard level. During the program it was demonstrated that 1 aldehydes are the last of the constituents of MUST RO permeate to be ozonated, 2 residual MUST aldehydes principally acetaldehyde rapidly reduce permanganate solutions, and 3 the degree of permanganate reduction may be easily quantitated colorimetrically and is directly proportional to residual MUST water contamination. The colorimeter and required hardware is judged low-cost, rugged, simple, and reliable. Author
