Hanna Instruments Orthophosphates are found in natural and wastewaters. They are commonly added to drinking water as a corrosion inhibitor. The instantaneous analysis of orthophosphate by colorimetric determination provides rapid results using a standard analysis technique.

The HANNA HI 713 Checker HC bridges the gap between simple chemical test kits and professional instrumentation. Chemical test kits are not very accurate and only give only a few resolution points while professional instrumentation can cost hundreds of dollars and can be time consuming to calibrate and maintain. The HANNA HI 713 Checker HC is accurate and affordable.

The HI 713 Checker HC portable handheld colorimeter features a resolution of 0.01 ppm (250 points) and ±0.04 ppm (mg/L) ±4% of reading accuracy. The HI 713 Checker HC uses an adaptation of Standard Method 4500-P E, Ascorbic Acid method.

The HI 713 Checker HC is extremely simple to use. First, zero the instrument with your water sample. Next, add the reagents. Last, place the vial into the Checker HC, press the button and read the results. It’s that easy.

Manufacturer Info

Hanna Instruments USA Aquarium Supplies
Hanna Instruments is a leading manufacturer of analytical aquarium instrumentation. They were founded in 1978 and are headquartered in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. When Hanna introduced pH Electronic Paper in 1986 it literally revolutionized the world of testing by allowing millions of people in various industries to test for pH in a simple, accurate and affordable way. Hanna employees are constantly challenging themselves to improve on existing technology and to invent new testing techniques with the common goal to simplify analytical testing. This applies not only to instrumentation, but also to sensors development, reagents and chemicals. Hanna also believes in controlling the quality of their products from inception to delivery so they manufacture everything themselves, from meters and electrodes to chemical reagents and buffer solutions.

Q
How do you interpret results from Hanna Checkers
Hanna makes several Checkers for Aquariums. They all report in ppm. Every other testing system gives you mg/dl or similar units. So how does ppm translate? Who is going to pay $40.00 for something when nowhere in the documentation does it say how to interpret the results?

A
Phosphate is typically measured in PPM or PPB for the Ultra Low Range meters. This can be translated to mg/L quite easily; 1 ppm = 1mg/L. Feel free to let us know if you are looking for a different unit of measure or parameter and we will be happy to help.

Love the digital readout

PROS
Digital readout
CONS
Times off too quickly, individual powder packets are easy to spill
REVIEW
Easy enough to use, love the digital readout instead of comparing colors. Wish the powder reagent came in a vial with spoon instead of individual packets, which are hard to empty without spilling. Wish it didn’t time down so quickly, as if you delay in any of the steps it shuts down and you have ...Read More

After the timer runs out the reading only stays on the screen for a short time. It’s easy to miss it if your doing something else.

PROS
Accurate if you have cat like reflexes.
CONS
2 minute sleep timer between C1 and C2 will make you lose your mind.
REVIEW
The meter is pretty accurate. However the timer that shuts the meter down after 2 mins is completely frustrating between C1 and C2, I aim for accurate readings and do not like to rush pouring the reagent in and mixing. Its like a frantic scramble to get all of the reagent in (which often clumps in t...Read More

The Hanna phosphate checker is an absolute must. It is easy to use and the most accurate test out there. The key to making this test simple is fill both vials and mix powder into one, before starting the test. Follow the cut line on the packet, then fold the sealed edge over the packet to easily pou...Read More
