Hydrazine is a powerful reducing agent that is used in various chemical processes and in boiler water as an oxygen scavenger. To control corrosion, residual hydrazine typically is maintained in the 0.05 to 0.1 mg/L range. Higher levels may be used to guard against corrosion when the boiler is out of service for an extended period.
The PDMAB Method

CHEMetrics’ hydrazine test kits employ the PDMAB, paradimethylaminobenzaldehyde chemistry. PDMAB in acid solution reacts with hydrazine to form a yellow product. Results are expressed as ppb (μg/L) or ppm (mg/L) N2H4
Kit comes in a plastic case and contains everything needed to perform 30 tests (except distilled water): Refill, Comparator, dilutor snapper cup, micro test tube, and instructions.
Range: 0-12.5 ppm
MDL: 0.25 ppm
