November 2012

Its cold ouside!

 

It's time for that annual reminder to take precautions with environmental equipment during the winter.

For example:

  • All pH probes will freeze and break (YSI 556, Pro Series, 6 Series and WTWs, etc.).
  • Environmental pumps will freeze and break – and you might not even know it because they may still work once thawed out, but won’t work as well.
  • Water sampling equipment; if not completely purged and dried, can freeze and break.
  • PID lamps fog–up when moved from warm to cold.
  • FIDs have problems lighting in cold or windy environments.

All equipment has minimum operating temperatures, consult your product manual for specifications.

Remember, just because it's field equipment doesn’t mean it’s impervious to cold weather.

Don’t store equipment outside overnight – not in your trunk, truck cab or anything else without temperature control.

“But I’m in Florida, I don’t have to worry about the cold!!”
Even Florida has to worry about oranges freezing sometimes!

 

Two examples of customer winter weather related problems:

  1. An electrical submersible pump was stored in the back of a truck with a topper, the customer thought that should be enough protection, but had problems getting the pump to work after sampling groundwater the day before. He wasn’t happy to hear that it could be a frozen pump.
  2. A rental FID was left in a truck cab overnight and wouldn’t light. After sitting inside for a couple hours the FID lit up on the first try.

We don’t want you to learn these expensive lessons the hard way. Please protect your valuable equipment investment.

Handheld Instruments
pH100A, DO200A, EC300A

The new handhelds will replace the previous EcoSense handhelds pH100, DO200 and EC300. These economical handhelds have been improved to provide a smart, cost-effective way to measure water quality.

The updated feature set of the new handhelds over their replacement models include an IP67 waterproof rating, 50 data-set memory and improved ergonomic design. They also maintain CE compliance,
1-year instrument warranty, submersible waterproof cables and quick, simple calibration routines. Other features include:

  • Large displays
  • Low battery indicator
  • Automatic shutoff after 30 minutes of inactivity

The new instruments can use the same old cables and sensors from the older models, or new cables and sensors can be ordered as part of a convenient kit.

Product Overviews:

pH100A
The pH100A is an economically priced, reliable instrument for the measurement of pH, mV and temperature. Use with the standard glass bulb pH electrode or with the flat glass electrode to prevent damage in harsh applications. A piercing tipped probe is also available.

DO200A
Economical, fast dissolved oxygen measurements with screw-on cap PE membranes that require low stirring. Uses the same electrochemical DO technology as other YSI models. Easy calibration routine with the ability to measure in the field or in the lab with BODs.

EC300A
The EC300A measures conductivity, salinity, TDS, and temperature in a simple, compact handheld. The 4-electrode conductivity cell is field-proven and extremely stable.

Slow-flow sampling? Thanks for the picture Meagan!
