Why does my Bottle of pH Buffer State a Temperature on the Label?

Changes in temperature affect a pH reading. This is why you will usually see the temperature printed on the side of the bottle of pH buffer solutions. The buffer will be closest to its stated pH at that temperature (usually 20oC or 25oC) When calibrating a pH meter with automatic buffer recognition, it is recommended to use the correct buffer. So please check the manufacture's instructions ...

pH Importance in Biogas Production

Why is the pH Important? The correct mix of feedstock such as slurry, food waste and processed plant material is important to ensure efficient biomethane production. This combined feedstock (media) is broken down by microorganisms in a series of steps, resulting in the production of methane (methanogenesis). The pH of the media is an important consideration during this process. Values...

How can I measure low sodium concentrations with an ISE?

Sodium's chemistry means that you cannot measure it's concentration with a simple test kit or reagent and photometer combination, like you would with many other water quality parameters. There are a number of available options (read more here). But using an ISE is the most commonly used within the water testing industry. ISE measurements can be a tricky method to master and relies careful ...

Using TRUEscience:Redox to monitor disinfection potential of water

Oxidation reduction potential (ORP) otherwise known as a REDOX potential measures an aqueous system’s capacity to either release or accept electrons from chemical reactions. When a system tends to accept electrons it is an oxidizing system. Conversely, when it tends to release electrons, it is a reducing system. Like pH, it is not a measure of a concentration directly, but of an activity level....

The measurement of REDOX potential

REDOX Measurement Essentially a REDOX electrode is very similar to a pH one.The electrochemical potential developed by the REDOX indicator electrode is measure compared to a stable reference potential provided by the reference electrode. A standard silver chloride type reference electrode used in the TRUEscience combination electrode exhibits potentials on the hydrogen scale of +120mV at 15º...

How to calibrate an Ion Selective Electrode Meter

Proper calibration of ion selective electrode (ISE) meters is vital to ensure accurate results. Here are some top tips for calibration: Calibration standard concentrations should bracket your expected sample - you should use at least 2 standard calibration standards which bracket the expected concentration of your sample, and these concentrations should be decades apart e.g. 0.1mg/L and 1mg/...

What type of electrode should I use to measure Dissolved Oxygen?

Quite simply, dissolved oxygen (DO) is free (non-compound) oxygen present in water. Oxygen dissolves by diffusion from the surrounding air, gained by aeration from turbid water or a waste product of photosynthesis. DO is vital to maintain aquatic life from fish to plants to bacteria and thus an important parameter to be able to measure. There are many factors to take into account when ch...

How to measure a Redox Potential

What is a Redox Potential? Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP or REDOX Potential) measures an aqueous system's capacity to either release or accept electrons from chemical reactions. When a system tends to accept electrons it is an oxidizing system. When it tends to release electrons, it is a reducing system. When are Redox measurements required? There are a number of different reasons...

What is sodium error or Na error in a pH electrode?

Q: I am looking to buy a pH electrode, many of them say "Na error over..." - what does this mean? A: Sodium error is also known as alkaline error, and is a phenomenon that occurs at very high pH levels - usually pH 12 or over. At very basic or alkaline pH levels, where Hydrogen ion concentration is relatively low compared to the Sodium ion concentration in the sample, you can see a Sodium...

FOM Food Oil Monitor not reading correctly?

Q: My FOM Food Oil Monitor from Ebro is showing the total polar compounds % result going down, even though the oil I am testing has been used more times. The TPC value should go up as the oil is used more times - what can I do?
