Conductivity meters and cells should be calibrated to a standard solution before using. When selecting a standard, choose one that has the approximate conductivity of the solution to be measured.
A polarized or fouled electrode must be cleaned to renew the active surface of the cell.
- In most situations, the Electrode Cleaning Solution is an effective cleanser.
- Acetone easily cleans most organic matter and Chlorine solutions will remove algae, bacteria or moulds.
- To prevent cell damage, abrasives or sharp objects should not be used to clean an electrode.
- A cotton bud works well for cleaning, but care must be taken not to widen the distance of the cell.
Kits are available in the following ranges: Low, Medium, High and Wide range.
They include three bottles of Conductivity Standards, Electrode cleaning solution, Electrode rinse water and four plastic calibration beakers.
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and COA sheets are available on request. Please request them if required.
