Easy-to-use, color-matching tests are available, such as DPD reagents used with a color comparator; test strips; or the FAS-DPD titration method, which involves an obvious color change in the water sample and provides more precise results.
Choose a DPD test with a color comparator that allows you to determine total and free chlorine.
We were issued a Hobart Fat Tester; a Ringlemann Smoke Scope; pH and chlorine color comparator test kits; two conductivity meters to validate high-temperature short-time pasteurization units; an assortment of thermometers, sample jars, bags, and sealing wax; and a high-intensity, plug-in UV lamp.
Of the providers using a nonwaived method, 59 used a color comparator (e.g., BMS Hemoglobinometer[_] or American Optical Hb-Meter[TM]); 23, an automated hematology analyzer (e.g., a Coulter counter); and seven, other instruments.

Basic equipment for the treatment plant laboratory includes flasks, beakers, graduates, burettes, bottles, pipettes and other glassware, color comparators with appropriate standards, laboratory balance, constant-temperature cabinet, and related apparatus.
By contrast, the color comparators used with the standard DPD test generally allow readings at the low end of 0 and 0.5 ppm and at the high end of 5 or maybe 10 ppm.
