Here are 10 hints on keeping the photometer clean, free from contamination and in good working order :1 Prepare your workplace before use. Make sure that you have enough space to work with the photometer and with the reagent systems. 2 Do not pour out samples or prepare the tests directly over the instrument. Remember to cap the tube before reading in the instrument. 3 Always cap the test tubes after preparing the blank and test sample. 4 Wipe test tubes on a clean tissue to remove drips or condensation before placing in the photometer. 5 Do not leave tubes standing in the photometer test chamber. Remove the tubes immediately after each test. 6 Immediately wipe up any drips or spillages onto the instrument or into the test chamber with a clean tissue. 7 Keep the instrument clean. Clean the test chamber regularly using a moistened tissue or cotton bud. 8 Keep the instrument away from all chemicals and cleaning materials. Do not place the instrument on top of chemical drums or barrels. 9 Keep the instrument in a clean, dry place when it is not in use. Keep it on a clean, dry bench away from chemicals, place it in a storage cupboard or keep it in a carrying case. 10 Keep the carrying case (where supplied) in a clean, dry condition. Make sure that any solutions which have spilled or drained into the carrying case are dried up before the case is closed up and the instrument is put away. Replace the battery when the 'B' symbol remains on the display. To remove the battery compartment cover press gently on the sides of the cover and pull downwards. Use 2 x 1.5v alkaline 'AA' batteries, MN 1500, LR6, E91, AM3 or equivalent. Remove batteries from instrument if it is to be stored or left unused for a long period of time. The Palintest 1000 Chlordioxmeter is guaranteed for a period of two years from the date of purchase excluding accidental damage or damage caused by unauthorised repair or misuse. Should repair be necessary, contact our Technical Services Department quoting the serial number shown in the battery compartment. This guarantee does not affect statutory rights. An instrument failure, due to test cell contamination, is not covered by the Palintest instrument warranty.

Take the Chlordioxmeter reading (Reading ‘W’) 2 3 4 5 6 7 Calculations The results of the tests are calculated from the Chlordioxmeter readings as follows :Chlorine Dioxide (as ClO2) = X Free Chlorine (as mg/l Cl2) = (Y – X) x 0. mix to dissolve and then stand for two minutes. and Chlorite 1 Rinse a test tube with sample leaving two or three drops of sample in the tube. Test Instructions – Free and Combined Chlorine. 3 The test reading for the sample will be displayed. Glycine is used to prevent any interference by chlorine. a) Re-zero instrument on a correct BLANK. Add the remaining contents of the first test tube to the second test tube and mix.53 2 3 E5 . The zero setting can be confirmed if necessary by taking a test reading on the blank tube. The reading represents the chlorine dioxide residual as milligrams per litre ClO2 (Reading ‘X’). A SAMPLE tube is a test tube containing the sample to which reagents have been added in accordance with the test procedure described opposite. b) Return instrument for repair. Crush tablet. crush and mix to dissolve. It is not necessary to reset the zero each time a reading is taken if the water samples are similar and the conditions of use are the same. Stray light has affected the reading. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Blank and Sample Tubes The Chlordioxmeter uses a BLANK tube to set the instrument to zero and a SAMPLE tube to take the chlorine measurement. Mix to dissolve the tablet. crush and mix to dissolve. The zero setting is held in memory. DPD CHLORINE DIOXIDE TEST Method The Palintest Chlorine Dioxide is based on a standard DPD procedure. Take the Chlordioxmeter reading (Reading ‘Z’). Error Messages Display E1 E2 or E3 E4 Cause Coloured.53 Chlorite (as mg/l Cl2) = W – (Z+ 4X) x 0. To Set Zero 1 Insert BLANK tube into the test chamber. a) Incorrect BLANK used to zero instrument. The method described will therefore determine chlorine dioxide in the absence or presence of residual chlorine. dry tube. 2 Press the ON key until the display appears (1 second). a) Remove instrument from vicinity of spot. Add one DPD Neutralising tablet. 10 ml glass (PT 595) Test Instructions – Chlorine Dioxide 1 Rinse a clean test tube with sample. This zero setting will be held in memory. Battery voltage too low for correct reading. crush tablet and then fill the test tube with sample to the 10 ml mark. Take the Chlordioxmeter reading immediately (Reading ‘Y’) Continue the test by adding one DPD No 3 tablet. Add one Glycine tablet. b) Electrical fault in instrument.

Add one DPD No 1 tablet. Crush tablet. If it is also required to measure free or combined chlorine residual. Add one DPD No 1 tablet and crush to disintegrate.. A BLANK tube is a test tube filled with untreated water sample. Decant two or three drops of the Glycine treated sample into a second clean test tube.00'. Chlorine dioxide reacts with DPD indicator to produce a pink coloration. (Do not hold the key down or the instrument will attempt to blank on the sample and cause errors in the readings).
