Provided are a device for controlling chemical injection into a boiler and a chemical injection method, which can control an injection amount such that a chemical concentration is obtained as per a target even in a boiler feed-water facility where a flow rate of feed-water varies to a large extent in a short period. A device for controlling the injection of a chemical into a boiler controlles an amount discharged by a chemical injection pump 37 in proportion to a flow rate measured by a flowmeter 40. An average chemical concentration in a feed-water is calculated from an amount of feed-water per predetermined period obtained by the flowmeter 40 and a reduction in the amount of chemical in a tank 36 per predetermined period obtained by a sensor 39. The chemical injection pump 37 is controlled on the basis of the calculated average chemical concentration and a preset target chemical concentration of the feed-water so that the average chemical concentration is within the target chemical concentration range.

In measuring a dissolved substance, a concentration of a specific dissolved substance in a sample water is measured using a measuring water W1 developing a specific color within a specific pH range by adding each of two reagents to a sample water W0, and an acid-base indicator S developing different colors other than the specific color is selected in a first pH range including the specific pH range and a second pH range deviating from the first pH range. Next, a reagent is prepared by adding the acid-base indicator to one reagent wherein a pH value of a reagent added water where the two kinds of reagents are separately added to the sample water is within the second pH range. Next, absorbance values are calculated by three region component lights which are a transmitted light in the measuring water wherein the prepared reagent is added.
