Colorimetric Method

INSTRAN Phenol Analyzer from Spain is designed to handle all kind of samples ranging from drinking water to waste water and even for sea water application. It incorporates laboratory measuring technique into online analyzer with self-calibration and self-cleaning in each analysis to ensure the measurement is in high precision.

The unique design of INSTRAN Phenol analyzer with syringe volume-controlled method ensures syringe will never contact with samples or reagents and thus prolong the shelf life of the syringe. The analyzer requires very little maintenance and low reagents consumption but yet powerful and high in accuracy.

INSTRAN Phenol Analyser

Colorimetric Method

  • Sample is pre-mix with 4-Aminoantipyrene solution for reaction of Phenol in Sample
  • Persulfate solution is added to pre-mix sample to form a pink complex
  • Reading of the concentration of Pink Complex form
  • Precise volume controlled of sample and reagents by syringe dispensing system ensure excellent accuracy and repeatability


  • Self-Cleaning after each Measurement
  • Standard Method uses for Phenol measurement
  • Calibration Interval Every Months (Application Dependent)
  • Very low maintenance & operating cost
  • Low reagent consumption


  • Drinking Water
  • Process Water
  • Water Treatment Plant
  • Storm Water
  • Discharge Effluent
  • Raw water
  • Sea Water
