Sanitizer Dilution Calculator

Use this calculator to prepare dilutions for chlorine, iodine, hydrogen peroxide or quat sanitizer solutions.

1) Enter the concentration in % (per cent) for the starting solution.

2) Enter the desired ppm of the diluted solution.

3) Enter the final volume you need to prepare in ml or L.

4) Press Calculate to get the volume (ml) of concentrate you need. This value, in ml or L, will appear in the empty "Volume" box in (4). Mix this with the amount of water entered in (2).

Note: Chlorine bleach comes in different concentrations as do other sanitizers; be sure to check first.

Tip: If you want to calculate a different ppm, simply clear the box in (4), enter a new ppm in (2) & press Calculate. You don't have to press "Clear" which removes everything.

Note: Don't let the metric scare you. If you are unsure how to use it, call us when you get your order of test strips. Please have your order number handy.
