Anions in Wastewater Using the Eco IC

The Eco IC, an entry-level ion chromatograph, has been designed for routine water analysis. Featuring a conductivity detector, the instrument can be used either with or without chemical suppression.

Here, the Metrosep A Supp 17 - 250/4.0 column is used to determine anions in wastewater. This type of column is suitable for water analysis at ambient temperatures.
