Dear Customer,
Thank you for choosing a Hanna Product.
Please read the instruction sheet carefully before using the
test kit. It will provide you with the necessary information
for correct use of the kit. If you need additional information,
do not hesitate to e-mail us at tech@hannainst.com.
Remove the chemical test kit from the packing material and
examine it carefully to make sure that no damage has
occurred during shipping. If there is any noticeable damage, notify your Dealer or the nearest Hanna office
immediately.
Each kit is supplied with:
• HI 93701-0 Free Chlorine Reagent, packets (100 pcs);
• HI 93711-0 Total Chlorine Reagent, packets (100 pcs);
• Demineralizer Bottle with filter cap for about 12 liters
of deionized water (depending on the hardness level
of water to be treated);
• 1 checker disc (including a mirror, a mirror holder ,
the 38020 and the 3875 discs);
• 2 glass vials with caps;
• 1 plastic pipette (3 mL).

Chlorine is the most commonly used water disinfectant in
applications that vary from treatment of drinking water
and wastewater, pool and spa sanitization, to food processing and sterilization. Chlorine present in water binds
with bacteria, leaving only a part of the original quantity
(free chlorine) to continue its disinfecting action. If the free
chlorine level is improper with respect to pH, water will
have an unpleasant taste and odor and the disinfecting
potential of the chlorine will be diminished.
Free chlorine reacts with ammonium ions and organic
compounds to form chlorine compounds resulting in diminished disinfecting capabilities compared with free chlorine.
Chlorine compounds together with chloramines form combined chlorine. Combined chlorine and free chlorine together
result in total chlorine.
While free chlorine has a much higher disinfectant potential, combined chlorine has a much higher stability and
has a lesser volatility.
Note: mg/L is equivalent to ppm (parts per million).
CHEMICAL REACTION
The reaction between chlorine and the DPD reagent causes
a pink tint in the sample which is proportional to the
chlorine concentration.
INSTRUCTIONS
READ THE ENTIRE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THE KIT
• To measure chlorine in the 0-0.7 mg/L range, verify
that the mirror, its holder and the 3875 disc are preinstalled in the checker disc. If not, install them as
shown in the figure.
• Remove the cap add the specific test reagent:
Free Chlorine: 1 packet of
Total Chlorine: 1 packet of
DPD Free Chlorine reagent.
DPD Total Chlorine reagent.
• Use the pipette to fill each glass
vial with 10 mL of sample (up to
the mark).
10 mL
• Insert one of the vials into the left hand opening of the
checker disc. This is the blank.
• Remove the cap and fill
the Demineralizer Bottle
with tap water.
• Replace the cap and
shake gently for at
least 2 minutes. The
demineralized water
is now ready.
• Flip open the top of the Demineralizer Bottle cap. By
gently squeezing the bottle, add demineralized water
to the other vial up to the 20 mL mark. Replace the
cap and shake to mix.
• Replace the cap and mix.
• In the case of Total Chlorine determination, wait
for 2 minutes to allow
reaction to occur. This is
the reacted sample.
• Remove the cap and insert
the reacted sample into the
right hand opening of the
checker disc.
• Hold the checker disc so that
a light source illuminates
the samples from the top.
• Keep the checker disc at a distance of 30-40 cm (1216") from the eyes to match the color. Rotate the disc
while looking at the color test windows and stop when
you find the color match. Read the value in the result
window and divide it by 5 to obtain mg/L (or ppm) of
Chlorine.
• To measure chlorine in the
0-3.5 mg/L range, remove
the disc, mirror and its holder,
if pre-installed. Then install
just the 3875 disc as shown
here.
• Use the pipette to fill each glass vial
with 5 mL of sample (up to the mark)
5 mL
and insert one of them into the left
hand opening of the checker disc. This
is the blank.
• Add to the other vial demineralized water up to the 10 mL
mark and shake to mix.

window directly in mg/L
(or ppm) of Chlorine.
To measure chlorine in the
0-10.0 mg/L range, remove the disc, mirror and
its holder, if pre-installed.
Then install just the
38020 disc as shown here.
Use the pipette to fill one of the glass vials with 5 mL
of sample. This is the blank; insert it into the left hand
opening of the checker disc.
Use the pipette to fill the other glass
vial with 2.5 mL of sample (up to the
2.5 mL
mark).
Add demineralized water up to the 15 mL mark and
shake to mix.
• Keep the checker disc at a distance of 30-40 cm (1216") from the eyes to match the color. Rotate the disc
while looking at the color test windows and stop when
you find the color match. Read the value in the result
window directly in mg/L (or ppm) of Chlorine.
For best results: Perform the reading three times and
take the average value (divide by 3 the sum of the
three numbers). Intensely colored samples will make
the color matching difficult and they should be
adequately treated before performing the test. Suspended matter in large amounts should be removed
by prior filtration.
Caution: Ultraviolet radiation may cause fading of colors.
When not in use, keep the disc protected from light,
in a cool and dry place.
Interferences: bromine, iodine, fluorine, ozone, oxidized
manganese and chromium.
