Silver Portable Photometer - HI96737

$235.00

The HI96737 Silver Portable Photometer combines accuracy and ease of use in an ergonomic, portable design. A user can accurately determine the concentration of silver within a 0.000 to 1.000 mg/L (ppm) range using the HI93737-0 ready made reagents. The HI96737 offers many advanced features including the exclusive CAL Check function used for performance verification and calibration of the meter.



CAL Check Validation and Calibration


Built-in Timer


Automatic Shut Off


Details

The HI96737 portable photometer is for the measurement of silver. Hanna's portable photometers feature an advanced optical system; the combination of a special tungsten lamp, a narrow band interference filter, and silicon photodetector ensure accurate photometric readings every time. The Hanna exclusive CAL Check feature utilizes ready-made, NIST traceable standards to verify both meter validation and calibration. The exclusive cuvette locking system ensures that the cuvette is inserted into the measurement cell in the same position every time to maintain a consistent path length.

 

Features at-a-glance

CAL Check - Allows for performance verification and calibration of the meter using a CAL Check NIST traceable secondary standard.

GLP - Records the date of the last user calibration performed.

Built in timer - Allows the use of a timer to ensure the appropriate 3 minutes and 30 seconds reaction time is used for the chemical reaction. At the end of the timer countdown the meter will automatically take the reading. This feature ensures consistency across multiple users.

Indexing indent on meter - The meter has an indent that allows for a lock and key fit with the cuvette cap. This ensures that the cuvette is indexed consistently (same position) in order to maintain the same path length for accurate results.

Cooling Lamp Indicator - It is necessary to maintain a consistent temperature of the optical components in order to maintain a narrow wavelength band of light. This photometer has a cooling lamp indicator that is displayed for a short period of time before each measurement in order to allow the components to cool and obtain the highest accuracy possible.

Error messages - Messages on display alerting to problems including no cap, over range and under range readings, and light source error.

Auto-shut off - Automatic shut off after 10 minutes of non-use when the meter is in measurement mode. Prevents wastage of batteries in the event the meter is accidentally not turned off.

Battery status indicator

The instrument has a battery level indicator to display reaming life as follows:

• 3 lines for 100 % capacity

• 2 lines for 66 % capacity

• 1 line for 33 % capacity

• Battery icon blinks when the capacity is less than 10 %.

Units of measure - Appropriate unit of measure is displayed along with reading.


optical system

Small quantities of silver are bacteriostatic. At times, silver is used in disinfection of pools and spas, as well as in water filters. The presence of silver in water is generally indicative of pollution, mainly from film manufacturers, film processors, and surface finishers. In fact, silver levels are closely monitored in these sectors since its presence can cause discoloration of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes.

The HI96737 uses an adaptation of the 1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphtol (PAN) method to measure silver concentrations of less than 1.000 mg/L (ppm). When the reagent is added to a sample containing silver, the sample will turn an orange hue; the greater the concentration, the deeper the color. The associated color change is then colorimetrically analyzed according to the Beer-Lambert Law. This principle states that light is absorbed by a complementary color, and the emitted radiation is dependent upon concentration. For silver determination, a narrow band interference filter at 575 nm (yellow-green) allows only yellow-green light to be detected by the silicon photodetector and omits all other visible light emitted from the tungsten lamp. As the change in color of the reacted sample increases, absorbance of the specific wavelength of light also increases, while transmittance decreases.
