Hanna Instruments HI700 Owner Manual
Tips for an Accurate Measurement
• It is important that the sample does not contain any debris.
• Whenever the cuvette is placed into the measurement cell, it
must be dry outside, and completely free of fingerprints, oil and
dirt. Wipe it thoroughly with HI731318 or a lint-free cloth prior
to insertion.
• Shaking the cuvette can generate bubbles, causing higher
readings. To obtain accurate measurements, remove such
bubbles by swirling or by gently tapping the cuvette.
• Do not let the reacted sample stand for too long after reagent
is added, as accuracy will be affected.
• After the reading it is important to immediately discard the
sample, otherwise the glass might become permanently stained.
Battery Management
To save the battery, the instrument shuts down after 10 minutes of non-use.
One fresh battery lasts for a minimum of 5000 measurements. When the battery is dead the
instrument will display “bAd” then ”bAt” for 1 second and then turns off.
To restart the instrument, the battery must be replaced with a new one.
To replace the instrument’s battery:
• Turn the instrument off by holding the button until the meter shuts off.
• Turn the instrument upside down and remove the battery cover with a screwdriver.
Recommendations for Users
Before using Hanna Instruments products, make sure that they are entirely suitable for

requiring the operator to take all necessary steps to correct such interferences. Any variation
introduced by the user to the supplied equipment may degrade the instrument’s EMC
performance. To avoid damages or burns, do not put the instrument in microwave oven. For
yours and the instrument safety do not use or store the instrument in hazardous environments.

Turn the meter on by pressing the button. All
segments are displayed. When the display
shows “Add”, “C.1” with “Press” blinking,
the meter is ready.
Fill the cuvette with 10 mL of unreacted sample
and replace the cap. Place the cuvette into the
meter and close the meter’s cap.
Press the button. When the display shows
“Add”, “C.2” with “Press” blinking the meter
is zeroed.
Remove the cuvette from the meter and unscrew
the cap. Add 4 drops of HI700A-0 reagent A.
Replace the cap and swirl the solution.
Unscrew the cap and add 4 drops of HI700B-0
reagent B. Replace the cap and swirl the
solution. Place the cuvette back into the meter.
Press and hold the button until the timer is
displayed on the LCD (the display will show
the countdown prior to the measurement)
or, alternatively, wait for 3 minutes and
30 seconds and press the button.
The instrument displays the results in mg/L
(ppm) of ammonia nitrogen (NH3-N). To convert
the reading to ppm of ammonia (NH3) multiply
the result by 1.214. The meter automatically
turns off after 10 minutes.

Errors and Warnings
Light High: There is too much light to perform a measurement. Please
check the preparation of the zero cuvette.
Light Low: There is not enough light to perform a measurement. Please
check the preparation of the zero cuvette.
Inverted Cuvettes: The sample and the zero cuvette are inverted.

Adaptation of the ASTM Manual of Water and Environmental
Technology, D1426, Nessler Method. The reaction between ammonia and reagents causes a yellow tint in the sample.

Under Range: A blinking “0.00” indicates that the sample absorbs less
light than the zero reference. Check the procedure and make sure you use
the same cuvette for reference (zero) and measurement.
Over Range: A flashing value of the maximum concentration indicates
the reading is over range. Dilute the sample and re-run the test.
Battery Low: The battery must be replaced soon.
Dead Battery: This indicates that the battery is dead and must
be replaced. Once this indication is displayed, normal operation of
the instrument will be interrupted. Change the battery and restart
the meter.
