Application Note: Quantitative analysis of MgCl2 and total sulfates by FT-NIR spectroscopy
6 August 2019

In this application note, ABB Analytical Measurements focuses on the measurement of MgCl₂ and total sulfates (%SO₄), which are linked to brine process control and optimization. They can be measured by ion chromatography (IC) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS). Conventional laboratory reference methods for IC and ICP are expensive and time consuming. ABB Analytical Measurements demonstrates that FT-NIR spectroscopy provides a quicker, cheaper and simpler alternative for brine process control and optimization.
