Whether your laboratory is a wastewater treatment plant, a private testing laboratory, a municipality monitoring the quality of drinking water, or other water-testing laboratory, Astoria-Pacific offers the best analyzers for ion/nutrient analysis. For example, we offer the Astoria2 Analyzer, which offers Ammonia via online Gas Diffusion and an alternative to distillation, as shown below:
And the rAPID-T system…
Our analyzers use many methods established by the USEPA and Standard Methods. Depending on a lab’s reporting limits, we offer several different working ranges for each test on the Astoria and Astoria2 Analyzer.
Typical analysis rates are up to 50 – 90 samplers per hour, depending on testing requirements.
The optional 50mm LWCC can improve detection capabilities by 5 – 10X depending on the test.
Please contact us for more info on the 50mm Liquid Waveguide Capillary Cell.
Common tests on the Astoria and Astoria2 Analyzers are:
|Test||Overall Range*||EPA Method#|
|Ammonia||0.001 – 4 mg/L||Method 350.1|
|Chloride||0.05 – 400 mg/L||Method 325.2|

Please discuss with one of our representatives about the advantages of alternative methods like Cyanide by in-line Distillation and UV Digestion, Phenol by in-line Distillation, or Total Dissolved Nitrogen by in-line UV Digestion.
Want an inexpensive system? Check out a rAPID-T analyzer for Water and Wastewater analysis:
The rAPID-T is inexpensive and reliable. With a photometer, 40-place sample rack, a 10-place reagent tray, and quick analysis rates of up to 100 tests per hour, the rAPID-T makes quick work of many common tests like:
- Cyanide (Post Dist.)
- Nitrate (by Enzymatic or Vanadium)
- Phenol (Post Dist.)
- Total Nitrogen (Pers. Digest)
- Total Phosphorus (Pers. Digest)
Please contact us for the rAPID-T’s current methods and applicable ranges.
