Anions in Drinking Water Using the Eco IC

The entry-level ion chromatograph, Eco IC, is designed for routine water analysis. Fully equipped with a conductivity detector, the instrument can be run either with or without chemical suppression.

In this article, the Metrosep A Supp 17 - 150/4.0 column is used to determine the anion content in drinking water. This type of column is ideal for water analysis at ambient temperatures.
