How to measure inhibitor levels in the system?

Maintaining water system efficiency is crucial, but monitoring inhibitor levels in system water can be a complex task. Fortunately, molybdate test strips offer a simple and effective solution.

With ReDiant Molybdate test strips you can measure not only ReDiant Inhibitor H7, but other brand (Fernox, Adey, etc.) molybdate-based inhibitors. Don't know the different types of corrosion inhibitors? Read our blog post here.

In this guide, we explore how molybdate test strips provide a convenient method for accurately measuring inhibitor concentrations in seconds. Let's dive in!

Testing the water

  1. Fill a clean container with system water or get an easy access to it (via filter, for example).
  2. Dip a test strip into the water, swirl it around for 1-2 seconds.
  3. Shake off the excess water.
  4. Compare the strip to the color chart on the tube. Aim for anything between 100–250 ppm, that's the optimal level.
  5. If the results are lover than 100 ppm, the system has to be re-dosed.
