has a choice of measurement units: µg/cm ,mg/m , µS/cm, mS/cm, ppm and
% Salinity. To select the measurement units (T), press Menu/Setup/Units.
The measurement units available depends on the measurement mode
selected:
Surface Cleanliness Mode: µg/cm2 or mg/m2
Conductivity Mode:
µS/cm, mS/cm, ppm or % Salinity
Selecting the Filter Paper Size
The Elcometer 130 can be set to automatically detect the filter paper size
in use or this can be manually selected by the user.
To manually select the paper size, press Menu/Setup/Filter Paper Size
followed by “Full”, “Half” or “Quarter” as required. When set to “Auto”, the
gauge will automatically detect the filter paper size in use.
• For Half Size Paper; using gloves to avoid contamination - fold the
standard paper in half and cut into two along the fold line.
• For Quarter Size Paper; using gloves to avoid contamination - fold the
standard paper into quarters and cut into quadrants along the fold lines.
The Elcometer 130 will automatically adjust the reading according to the
filter paper size detected or selected, assuming that the paper is positioned
on the measurement electrodes correctly, and if manually set up, the correct
paper size is used. No manual calculations are required by the user.
Full; selected or detected if set to “Auto”
Half; selected or detected if set to “Auto”

5. Fill a syringe with the precise amount of high purity water# required,
dependent on the filter paper size: Full: 1.6ml; Half: 0.8ml; Quarter: 0.4ml.
4 Non-pure water, with a maximum conductivity of 237.5µS/cm (equivalent to
2µg/cm2 or 119 ppm) can be offset using the Calibration Offset feature (T),
see page 7.

6. Using tweezers, remove a filter paper from the pack.
4 For half size paper: fold the standard paper in half and cut into two along the
fold line.

8. Place wetted paper on to the area under test,
pressing firmly into any contours or
irregularities to remove any entrapped air
and start the 2 minute timer.
4 The Elcometer 130 has an optional timer,
see page 15.

Filter paper should be discarded and the sample re-tested in a similar location, if
the paper is left on the substrate for more than 3 minutes.
Failure to thoroughly clean the measurement electrodes between tests may
contaminate subsequent tests and result in inaccurate readings.
The Elcometer 130 measurement electrodes are gold plated to prevent corrosion
and oxidisation, prolonging the life and accuracy of the gauge. They should only
be cleaned using pure water and the sensor wipes supplied. DO NOT use
