***FREE SHIPPING WITHIN THE CONTIGUOUS US***
Chlorine test strips by Serim are Mid Range Chlorine Test Strips, measuring free chlorine concentrations of 0 - 300 ppm with color block increments at 0, 25, 50, 100, 200, and >300 ppm. Use Chlorine Test Strips to test a wide variety of solutions containing chlorine.
Chlorine test strips give a semi-quantitative indication that chlorine-based sanitizers have the appropriate concentration of free chlorine required for sanitizing food and food processing equipment.
These test strips are designed to be ready-to-use with easy-to-interpret boxes directly on the chlorine test strip. For more information on chlorine test strips, see the PDF below.
Each bottle contains 100 Chlorine Test Strips.
WHAT does this product do?
Serim® Monitor™ for Chlorine Potency strips measure free chlorine. The test gives a semi-quantitative indication that chlorine-based sanitizers have the appropriate concentration of free chlorine required for use in sanitizing food and food processing equipment.
WHY should I use this product?
In food processing, the concentration of chlorine can range from 10-ppm to 5000-ppm depending on the type of food being processed (meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, fruits, vegetables, eggs, etc…), the processing stage and federal (USDA, EPA, FDA) or state regulations.
Using a free chlorine concentration that is too low may not thoroughly disinfect equipment. However, using an unnecessarily high concentration of chlorine may apply unnecessary, undesirable, potentially unhealthy, or unlawful levels of disinfectant to water systems. In addition, the free chlorine concentration in soaking tanks and foot baths is depleted by organic matter during use and needs to be monitored continually. “The goal is to develop cleaning/sanitizing methods that effectively rid the product, plant, and equipment of soil and microorganisms for the least expenditure and effort” without overusing chlorine.
Serim Monitor strips allow testing at various points-of-use in the food manufacturing industry and yield quick answers as to whether the free chlorine concentration at a particular processing stage is present at an adequate concentration.
WHERE do I use this product?
Review the applicable regulations or manufacturer’s equipment instructions to determine the appropriate sampling point. Periodic samples may be required to determine that the chlorine potency remains at the desired level.
