Procedure with the H2 Blue Kit® for testing the amount of molecular hydrogen
Testing the amount of molecular hydrogen with the H2 Blue Kit is done immediately after production. For that you carefully fill a 6 ml measuring cup with test-water and add one drop of the blue measuring liquid.
Each drop that discolours means 0,1 ppm (=100 ppb) of dissolved hydrogen gas. If a drop does not discolour on its own, yo can stir gently.
If the liquid then does not discolour does the last drop added to the water not count. Water under normal atmospheric pressure can contain up to 1,6 ppm hydrogen gas (full saturation). With the AquaVolta® Hydrogen Booster you can also produce over-saturated water with more than 6 ppm.
Yet this falls back to full saturation after a few minutes when this water comes into contact with the normal atmosphere.
Whoever wants a lot of hydrogen, has to drink quickly.
Measurement | Hydrogen content | with the H2 Blue Kit ®
- In the picture (centre) you see the normal container of the AquaVolta® Hydrogen Booster, which was filled with 0,2 l tap water (Munich) and 10 drops of the Reagent H2 Blue Kit ® were added.
- After operating 25 seconds, the solution discoloured and indicated the amount of dissolved hydrogen.
- In the operating level,(LED shines green), after 7 minutes the AquaVolta® Hydrogen Booster reached 1,7 ppm with the same tap water.
This equates to an over saturation of 0,1 ppm.
1 drop of the H2 Blue Kit® is internationally valid as proof for 100 ppb (0,1 ppm) dissolved hydrogen in water.
