Determination of Bath Concentration by Free Alkalinity Titration

Reagents and Equipment:

  • Hach Alkalinity Test Kit Model AL-TA (Bromocresol Green - Methyl Red)
    • Includes:
      • Plastic measuring tube
      • Mixing bottle Sulfuric Acid Standard Solution, 0.500N
      • Bromocresol Green - Methyl Red Reagent pillow packets
  • Deionized water
  • AquaKlean SUS bath
  • Scissors


  1. Fill the plastic measuring tube level full with AquaKlean SUS bath.  Pour the contents of the tube into the mixing bottle.
  2. Open one Bromocresol Green - Methyl Red Reagent pillow packet and add the contents to the mixing bottle.  Swirl gently until fully mixed.
  3. Add Sulfuric Acid Standard Solution, 0.500N, drop-by-drop to the mixing bottle.  Swirl the bottle gently in between drops, allowing for full mixing. Count each drop as it is added.  Continue adding drops until the color changes from blue-green to pink.
  4. The total volume of the AquaKlean SUS can be calculated by multiplying the number of Sulfuric Acid Standard Solution, 0.500N, used in the test by the experimentally determined factor below.

Drops x 0.9645 = Volume AquaKlean® SUS (%)

Concentration based on number of drops from test kit.


AquaKlean® SUS  is effective at ambient temperatures.  However, it is normally used at 1 to 10% by volume of water at 60 °F to 165 °F for 5 seconds to 5 minutes.  The parameters can vary due to the type and extent of soils to be removed. Temperatures may be increased slightly for shorter time cycles.
