3048 Iron Analyzer

Range: 0 – 5ppm*

Range: 0 – 100ppb


The Waltron 3048 Dissolved Iron Analyzer is the first choice for colorimetric online analysis of dissolved iron in clean water applications. Online dissolved iron analysis is a growing in importance as an effective method to monitor corrosion within steam and boiler water systems. An enhanced color touchscreen user interface makes the 3048 easy to operate and configure, and the clever fast-loop reservoir feature allows accurate measurement independent of flow. The 3048 automates manual bench test analysis for accurate and reliable results, greatly enhanced visibility on changes in iron concentrations, and earlier detection of potential problems.
