pH Calibration

The pH meter allows 1 to 3 points calibration. You should perform at least 2 points calibration for high accuracy measurement. The meter will automatically recognize and calibrate to following standard buffer values.

USA Standard Buffer Options: pH 4.01, 7.00, 10.01

NIST Standard Buffer Options: pH 4.01, 6.86, 9.18

Single point calibration should only be carried out with pH 7.00 or 6.86, otherwise calibration will not be accepted.

The meter must be calibrated prior to first use or new electrode replaced. To ensure accuracy, regular calibration is recommended. Do not reuse calibration solution after calibration, contaminants in solution will affect the calibration and eventually the accuracy of the measurement.

If the Auto-Hold function is disabled, press key, the meter will immediately freeze currently displayed value. Press the key again to resume measuring.

Electrode Care and Maintenance

Since pH electrode is susceptible to dirt and contamination, clean as necessary depending on the extent and condition of use.

AFTER MEASURING:

Rinse the pH electrode in distilled water, store the sensor into the electrode storage solution.

CLEANING THE ELECTRODE:

  • Salt deposits: Soak the pH electrode in warm tap water to dissolve deposits, then thoroughly rinse with distilled water.
  • Oil or Grease film: Wash the electrode bulb gently in some detergents and water. If necessary, use the alcohol to clean the electrode bulb, then rinse with distilled water. Place the sensor in the electrode storage solution for 30 minutes.
  • Clogged reference junction: Heat a diluted KCl solution to 158 °F (70 °C). Place the sensing part of the sensor into the heated solution for about 10 minutes. Allow the sensor to cool in some unheated KCl solution.
  • Protein deposits: Prepare a pepsin solution in 0.1 M of HCL. Place the electrode in the solution for 10 minutes. Rinse the sensor with distilled water.

REACTIVATING THE ELECTRODE:

If stored and cleaned properly, the electrode should be ready for immediate use. However, a dehydrated bulb may cause sluggish response. To rehydrate the bulb, immerse the electrode in a pH 4.01 buffer solution for 10 to 30 minutes. If this fails, the electrode requires activation.

  • Soak the pH electrode in 0.1M HCl for 5 minutes.
  • Remove and rinse with distilled water, then place in 0.1 M NaOH for 5 minutes.
  • Remove and rinse again, and soak in electrode storage solution for 30 minutes.
