DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Test Method:
Immersion

Test Strip Technique: Immerse the indicator pad into the sample. Remove immediately & firm shake to remove excess sample.

Results: Between 15 and 30 seconds after removing strip from sample, compare the color of the indicator pad to the color blocks on the bottle label. Match color at center of pad to the color block. Disregard color around outer edge of indicator pad.
 
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 unnecessarily, 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 applicable regulations to determine the recommended level of free chlorine and sampling points for particular applications.
