Presentation Transcript

  1. Instrument care • Wipe cells dry with lint free tissue before inserting into instrument. • Empty the cells and rinse with de-ionised water. • Dry the packing foam if wet. • Thoroughly clean and dry unit if wet. • Always use the carrying case. 22

  2. Instrument settings - HACH Pocket Colorimeter • Two ranges • Low (0.00 – 2.20 mg/L). • High (0.0 – 4.5 mg/L) Total Only. • Switching ranges • Press Zero & Read simultaneously. • After one second, release the Zero button – keep holding the Read button. 23

  3. Calibration check • Monthly • Using a DPD Secondary Standard Kit (kept in • Regional or District offices) • Instrument MUST be in Low range when checking calibration • Kit is good for 2 years • Store kits in cool place 24

  4. Chlorine calibration secondary standards 25

  5. Chlorine calibration secondary standards These standards have a use-by date and must not be used after they expire. 26

  6. Chlorine calibration check • Calibration check must be carried out in the • Low Range only. • The calibration kit contains a Blank. • Only use this Blank with the calibration check • and NOT with water samples. • The correct standard chlorine concentrations • are printed under the lid of the standards kit lid. 27

  7. You need to keep a record of the results for your chlorine colorimeter data sheet Below is an example of a calibration check data sheet Calibration of HACH Pocket Colorimeter – {enter ID Number of Instrument} 28

  8. Accepted tolerance • Chlorine values beyond the stated tolerance indicate the colorimeter is out of specification. • As a guide, when chlorine values are more than : • ± 0.03 mg/L for Std 1 • ± 0.03 mg/L for Std 2 • ± 0.04 mg/L for Std 3 • The unit must be sent to Water Technologies Section for checking – Contact Mr Kevin Xanthis 29

  9. Error messages (for the blue unit) E1 -Unstable Reading E2 -Low Light Error E3 -Low Battery Message E7 -Improper Calibration Flashing 0.00 – Under range Flashing 2.20 – Over range in LO range Flashing 5.0 – Over range in HI range 30

  10. Reporting procedure • Water Corporation specifies approved procedures for reporting test results. • Use the correct forms supplied at your worksite. • Submit them in a timely manner as described at your work site. 31

  13. Quiz- Question 2 of 6 Calibration check can be carried out in both the Low range or High range settings. a) True b) False Clickherefor answer. 33

  14. Quiz 2- Answer Calibration check can be carried out in both the Low range or High range settings. b) False Calibration check must be carried out only in the Low range. 33

  15. Quiz- Question 3 of 6 When using the original HACH Pocket Colorimeter (blue unit) what does an error message of E2 mean? a) Low light error b) Unstable reading c) Low battery message d) Improper calibration Clickherefor answer. 34

  16. Quiz 3- Answer What does an error message of E2 mean? a) Low light error 34

  17. Quiz- Question 4 of 6 When sampling water, it is important to replace the sample cell cap immediately to prevent loss of chlorine. a) True b) False Clickherefor answer. 35

  18. Quiz 4- Answer When sampling water, it is important to replace the cap immediately to prevent loss of chlorine. a) True 35

  19. Quiz- Question 5 of 6 The proportion of hypochlorous acid depends on . a)pH b)temperature c)the ratio of chlorine and ammonia d)all of the above Clickherefor answer. 36

  20. Quiz 5- Answer The proportion of hypochlorous acid depends on . d) all of the above 36

  21. Quiz- Question 6 of 6 Which of the following statements is true? a) Free chlorine is hypochlorous acid (HOCl ) b) Total chlorine = HOCl + Combined chlorine c) Combined chlorine is the sum of all chloramines d) All of the above Clickherefor answer. 37
