  1. Remove the plastic cover from the electrode arm.
  2. Use the screwdriver to tighten the screw moderately.
  3. Insert the plastic cover to the previous position. Installation is completed.


Connecting the Sensor
Take out the applicable sensors from the packaging. Follow the steps below to place the electrode into left or right sides of the electrode arm.

FOR THE pH AND ORP ELECTRODES:
Insert the BNC connector into the corresponding connector socket. Rotate and push the connector clockwise until it locks. After the connection is completed, DO NOT pull on the sensor cord. Always make sure that the connector is clean and dry.

FOR THE DISSOLVED OXYGEN PROBE:
Insert the 6-pin connector into corresponding connector socket, ensure the connector is fully seated.

 

Preparing the pH Buffer Solutions
This instrument is packaged with three pH buffer packets required for calibration.

  1. Open the pH 7.00 buffer packet, place the powder into 250 ml volumetric flask. Pour distilled water 250 ml to scale line, mix the solution until reagent is completely dissolved.
  2. Preparation of pH 4.01 and 10.01 standard buffer solutions are the same as above.
  3. Prepared standard buffer solutions should be stored in hermetically sealed glass containers.


Refilling Electrolyte Solution for DO Probe

  1. Unscrew the membrane cap from the bottom of the dissolved oxygen probe.
  2. Fill the membrane cap halfway with an electrolyte solution.
  3. Screw the membrane cap onto the probe, excess electrolyte will drain out.

  3. Press▲ or ▼ key to set the temperature value of the sample.
  4. Press ENTER key to confirm, the meter returns to measurement mode. The setting is completed.

pH Calibration

This water quality meter allows up to 5 points calibration in the pH mode. It is recommended that you 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 1.68, 4.01, 7.00, 10.01, 12.45
NIST Standard Buffer Options pH 1.68, 4.01, 6.86, 9.18, 12.45
DIN Standard Buffer Options pH 1.09, 4.65, 6.79, 9.23, 12.75

If you selected the user-defined option in the setup menu, the meter will allow only 2 points calibration. Single point calibration should only be carried out with pH 7.00, 6.86 or 6.79, otherwise, calibration will not be accepted.

Make sure to calibrate the meter when attaching a new electrode or during first use. DO NOT reuse calibration solution after calibration, contaminants in solution will affect the calibration and eventually the accuracy of the measurement.

SINGLE POINT CALIBRATION:

  1. Make sure that you have selected 1 point calibration in the setup menu.
  2. Rinse the pH electrode with distilled water.
  3. Press CAL key, the meter shows “pH 7.00/CAL” (or “6.86/CAL”, “6.79/CAL”).
  4. Dip the pH electrode into the pH7.00 (or 6.86, or 6.79) buffer solution, the end of the electrode must be completely immersed into the calibration solution. Stir the sensor gently to create a homogeneous solution.
  5. Press ENTER key, “Calibration” indicator begins flashing. Wait for the measured value to stabilize, the display shows “END”. The meter returns to measurement mode automatically. Calibration is completed.

MULTI-POINT CALIBRATION:

  1. Make sure that you have selected 2 to 5 points calibration in the setup menu.
  2. Repeat above steps. When the first calibration point is completed, the display will show “CAL2”. The meter prompts you to continue with second point calibration.
  3. Rinse the pH electrode with distilled water. Dip the electrode into the next standard buffer solution (e.g., pH4.01). The meter automatically senses the current calibration solution and begins calibrating. “Calibration” indicator begins flashing.
  4. Wait for the measured value to stabilize, the display shows “CAL3”. The meter prompts you to continue with third point calibration.
  5. Repeat the steps until the display shows “END”. The meter returns to measurement mode automatically. Calibration is completed.

ORP Calibration

This device allows 1 point calibration in the relative mV mode, but calibration is not necessary unless exact readout agreement with a work standard and at a specific ORP value is needed.

pH 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 electrode in the electrode storage solution.

CLEANING THE ELECTRODE:

  1. Salt deposits: Soak the electrode in warm tap water to dissolve deposits, then thoroughly rinse with distilled water.
  2. Oil or Grease film: Wash the electrode bulb gently in some detergents and water. If necessary, using the alcohol to clean the electrode bulb, then rinse with distilled water. Place the sensor in the electrode storage solution for 30 minutes.
  3. Clogged reference junction: Heat a diluted KCl solution to 140 °F to 176 °F (60 °C to 80 °C). Place the sensing part of the electrode into the heated solution for about 10 minutes. Allow the electrode to cool in some unheated KCl solution.
  4. Protein deposits: Prepare a 1% 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 the 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.

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

ORP Electrode Care and Maintenance

  1. Ensure that the ORP electrode is thoroughly washed with distilled water after each use.
  2. In aggressive chemicals, dirty or viscous solutions, and solutions with heavy metals or proteins take readings quickly and rinse electrode immediately after.
  3. If you do not use the electrode for long periods, please store the electrode with electrode storage solution.

CLEANING THE ELECTRODE:

Contamination of the sensing element often results in slow response and inaccurate readings. If necessary, clean the element by one of the following procedures.

Inorganic Deposits: 

  1. Soak the ORP electrode in 0.1M HCl for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove and rinse with distilled water, then place in alcohol for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove and rinse again, and soak in pH4.01 buffer solution for 15 minutes.

Oil and Grease Films: 

  1. Wash the electrode gently in some detergents and water.
  2. Dip the electrode in the electrode storage solution for at least 30 minutes.

DO Probe Care and Maintenance

  1. Please always keep probe’s membrane moist.
  2. If you do not use the dissolved oxygen probe for long periods, please screw off membrane cap and rinse the probe’s cathode, anode and the membrane with deionized water, then soak up residual water on them with filter paper, and install the probe.
