Model 926 Chloride Analyzer

The Sherwood Model 926 is used for the determination of chloride ions. It is an instrumental analogue of "Argentimetry", the traditional titrimetric methods using silver nitrate reagent. Like these classic methods it relies on the chemical formation of the very insoluble salt, silver chloride.

The importance of chloride determination has been realized for well over a century, with many variations and changes being made to the techniques in order to improve the detectability and selectivity. Research into the analysis of chloride was conducted by Gay-Lussac (1832), Levol (1853), Mohr (1856) and Volhard (1874) and their findings have proven to be the basis of the methods which are still in common use today.
