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.



Anion Conc. [mg/L]
1 Fluoride n.q.
2 Chloride 102.7
3 Nitrite n.q.
4 System peak (carbonate) -
5 Bromide n.q.
6 Nitrate 21.5
7 Sulfate 29.7
8 Phosphate n.q.
