COMPOSER Franz von Suppe – SEIBOLD Online-Analyser for Aluminium
Natural sources. Aluminum (Al) is the most abundant metallic element in the lithosphere. Industry. Aluminium salts are widely used in water treatment as coagulants to reduce organic matter, colour, turbidity and microorganism levels. Such use may lead to increased concentrations of aluminium in finished water.
Drinking water. Important sources of elevated Al concentrations in drinking water are the use of Al-based flocculating agents such as Al2(SO4)3. Concentrations of aluminium of 0.1 mg/litre or less are achievable in large water treatment facilities. Toxicity. There is little indication that orally ingested aluminium is acutely toxic to humans despite the widespread occurrence of the element in foods, drinking-water and many antacid preparations. It has been hypothesized that aluminium exposure is a risk factor for the development or acceleration of onset of Alzheimer disease (AD) in
