Abstract:

The FACTS test procedure was tested at 16 water treatment laboratories throughout the U.S. It was found to be equivalent for the determination of free available chlorine to both the DPD test and amperometric titration and is approved by the U.S. environmental Protection Agency for use in drinking water treatment plants. Several instrumental procedures for chlorine residual analysis were also tested. An on line continuous amperometric procedure was shown to be operator independent and could be used for control and monitoring of chlorine in water treatment processes.
