Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) or Redox Potential Measurements are used to monitor chemical reactions, to quantify ion activity, or to determine the oxidising or reducing properties of a solution.
The Kit is recommended for a longer electrode lifespan, plus reliable and accurate results.
- Treatment of industrial wastes
- Study of biological systems
- Oxidation of cyanide
- Bleaching of pulp, manufacture of bleach
- Reduction of Chromate wastes
- Indication of sanitation in pool water treatment
- For general cleaning applications, swirl the electrode in a beaker containing Electrode Cleaning Solution for about 30 seconds. Rinse in tap water before use.
- Stubborn deposits and bacteria: soak in a 1:10 solution of household bleach (such as Jik) for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly before use. Alternative method: Soak the electrode in a 3.8 or 4.0 molar KC1 (Potassium Chloride)* solution heated to 50ºC for 1 hour. Allow the KC1 solution to cool down to room temperature, then rinse the electrode with deionised or distilled water*. This will open and clean the reference electrode of all contaminants.
- Oil and Grease: rinse in dishwashing liquid or methyl alcohol. Wash in water before use.
- Protein Deposits: soak in pepsin cleaning solution* for 5 – 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can soak it in contact lens enzymatic cleaner solution overnight. The enzymes will remove proteins from glass and plastic. Rinse in water before use.
