We chose Metrohm IC as it is a robust instrument that is very reliable with a good suppressor lifetime.

Sembcorp use Metrohm IC to accurately measure Halides in demineralised water, waste water and Biomass samples.

The waste water matrix was previously tested using colorimetric methods but was found to have problems with recovery. The IC method routinely gives us 100% recovery but also allows us to monitor other anion species at the same time. I have just installed a pre-concentration system allowing us to monitor halides at <0.5ppb in the demineralised water.

We chose Metrohm IC as it is a robust instrument that is very reliable with a good suppressor lifetime. The software is easy to use and understand. The benefits are the quality components and columns for anion separations. I regularly achieve over 5000 injections of samples of waste water and demineralised water per column before a change is required.

After sales support is excellent with a combination of e-mail, telephone and site visits if required. Our main reason for choosing Metrohm IC is the 10 year warranty on the suppressor. Even running the suppressor dry has not caused a system failure. We only needed to run through sulphuric acid for a short time and the suppressor was regenerated and performing “as good as new”.
