4.4. PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
Absorption of light is a typical phenomenon of interaction between electromagnetic radiation and
matter. When a light beam crosses a substance, some of the radiation may be absorbed by atoms,
molecules or crystal lattices.
If pure absorption occurs, the fraction of light absorbed depends both on the optical path length
through the matter and on the physical-chemical characteristics of the substance according to the
Lambert-Beer Law:
-log I/Io = el c d
or
A = el c d
9
DESCRIPTION
= intensity of incident light beam
Io
I
= intensity of light beam after absorption
el
= molar extinction coefficient at wavelength λ
c
= molar concentration of the substance
d
= optical path through the substance
Therefore, the concentration "c" can be calculated from the absorbance of the substance as the
other factors are constant.
Photometric chemical analysis is based on specific chemical reactions between a sample and
reagent to produce a light-absorbing compound.
4.5. OPTICAL SYSTEM
Instrument Block Diagram
The internal reference system (reference detector) of the HI83303 photometer compensates for any
drifts due to power fluctuations or ambient temperature changes, providing a stable source of light
for your blank (zero) measurement and sample measurement.
LED light sources offer superior performance compared to tungsten lamps. LEDs have a much higher
luminous efficiency, providing more light while using less power. They also produce little heat,
which could otherwise affect electronic stability. LEDs are available in a wide array of wavelengths,
whereas tungsten lamps have poor blue/violet light output.
Improved optical filters ensure greater wavelength accuracy and allow a brighter, stronger signal to
be received. The end result is higher measurement stability and less wavelength error.
A focusing lens collects all of the light that exits the cuvette, eliminating errors from cuvette
imperfections and scratches, eliminating the need to index the cuvette.

into the solution.
(b) Pull the plunger up until the lower edge of the seal is exactly on
the mark for the desired volume.
(c) Take out the syringe and clean the outside of the syringe tip, be
sure that no drops are hanging on the tip of the syringe. Then,
keeping the syringe in vertical position above the cuvette, push
the plunger down into the syringe, the desired volume has been
delivered into the cuvette.
6.2.2. PROPER USE OF DROPPER
(a) For reproducible results, tap the dropper on the table several times and wipe the outside of the
tip with a cloth.
(b) Always keep the dropper bottle in a vertical position while dosing the reagent.

18
PHOTOMETER MODE
6.3. CUVETTE PREPARATION
Proper mixing is very important for reproducibility of the measurements. The proper mixing
technique for each method is listed in the method procedure.
(a) Invert the cuvette a couple of times or for a specified time: hold the cuvette in the vertical
position. Turn the cuvette upside-down and wait for all of the solution to flow to the cap end,
then return the cuvette to the upright vertical position and wait for all of the solution to flow to
the cuvette bottom. This is one inversion. The correct speed for this mixing technique is
10-15 complete inversions in 30 seconds.
This mixing technique is indicated with “invert to mix” and the following icon:
(b) Shaking the cuvette, moving the cuvette up and down. The movement may be gentle or
vigorous. This mixing method is indicated with “shake gently” or “shake vigorously”, and one
of the following icons:
shake gently
shake vigorously
In order to avoid reagent leaking and to obtain more accurate measurements,
and then the
close the cuvette first with the supplied HDPE plastic stopper
black cap.
Whenever the cuvette is placed into the measurement holder, it must be dry
outside and free of fingerprints, oil or dirt. Wipe it thoroughly with HI731318 or
a lint-free cloth prior to insertion.
Shaking the cuvette can generate bubbles in the sample, causing higher
readings. To obtain accurate measurements, remove such bubbles by swirling or
by gently tapping the cuvette.
19
PHOTOMETER MODE
Do not let the reacted sample stand too long after reagent is added. For best accuracy, respect the
timings described in each specific method.
It is possible to take multiple readings in a row, but it is recommended
to take a new zero reading for each sample and to use the same cuvette
for zeroing and measurement when possible.
Discard the sample immediately after the reading is taken, or the glass
might become permanently stained.
All the reaction times reported in this manual are at 25 °C (77 °F). In
general, the reaction time should be increased for temperatures lower
than 20 °C (68 °F), and decreased for temperatures higher than 25 °C
(77 °F).
Interference
In the method measurement section the most common interferences that may be present in a
typical water sample have been reported. It is possible that a particular application could introduce
other compounds that will also interfere.
6.4. TIMERS AND MEASUREMENT FUNCTIONS
Each method requires a different preparation procedure, reaction times, sample preparations, etc. If
a timer or timers are necessary for proper sample preparation, the Timer key will be available.
To use a reaction timer, press the Timer key.
The default timer will start immediately. To stop and reset the timer, press Stop.
If the selected method requires more than one timer, the meter will automatically select each timer
in the appropriate order. To bypass the default order, you may press the desired key to activate a
different timer (only while the current timer is stopped). Press Continue to start the active timer.
For some methods, the timer is only necessary after a Zero measurement has been performed. In
this case, the timer key will only be available after the Zero measurement has been performed.
If the method requires a Zero or Read measurement after a timer has expired, the meter will
automatically perform the appropriate action. Follow the instructions in the Method Procedure.
To perform a Zero or Read measurement, insert the appropriate prepared cuvette, then press the
Zero or Read key. A Zero measurement must be conducted before Read measurements.

Preparation
Pour small quantities of the buffer solutions into clean beakers. If possible, use plastic beakers to
minimize any EMC interferences. For accurate calibration and to minimize cross-contamination, use
two beakers for each buffer solution: one for rinsing the electrode and one for calibration. If you are
measuring in the acidic range, use pH 7.01 or 6.86 as the first buffer and pH 4.01 as the second
buffer. If you are measuring in the alkaline range, use pH 7.01 or 6.86 as the first buffer and
pH 10.01 or 9.18 as the second buffer.
Procedure
Calibration can be performed using one or two calibration buffers. For more accurate
measurements, a two-point calibration is recommended.

Clean Probe:
The "Clean Probe" message indicates poor electrode
performance (offset out of accepted window, or slope under the
accepted lower limit). Often, cleaning the probe will improve
the pH electrode's response. See pH Electrode Conditioning and
Maintenance for details. Repeat calibration after cleaning.
PROBE MODE
7.2. pH CALIBRATION MESSAGES
Check Probe & Buffer:
The “Check Probe & Buffer” message appears when there
is a large difference between the pH measurement and the
selected buffer value, or the electrode slope is outside of the
accepted slope limit. You should check your probe and confirm
the correct buffer selection. Cleaning may also improve this
response.
Wrong Temperature:
The buffer temperature is too extreme for the selected buffer value.
7.3. pH MEASUREMENT
The HI83303 can be used to perform direct pH measurements by connecting a HANNA® digital
pH electrode with a 3.5 mm TRRS connector. To begin taking probe measurements, connect the
electrode to the 3.5 mm port marked with EXT PROBE located at the rear of the meter. If the meter
is in “Photometer Mode”, set the meter to “Probe Mode” by pressing the MODE key.
While taking pH probe measurements, the following functions are available:
• Calibrate: Press to access electrode calibration functions.
• GLP: Press to review the last calibration information, including date/time, buffers used, slope,
and offset.
• Range: Press to switch between “pH” units and “mV” units.

PROBE MODE
Press to switch to Photometer mode.
Press to access the meter’s Setup menu.
Press to log the current measurement.
Press to review the meter’s log history.
Press to view contextual help information.
For high accuracy it is recommended to calibrate your electrode often. pH electrodes should be
recalibrated at least once per week, but daily calibration is recommended. Always recalibrate after
cleaning an electrode. See page 23 for more information on pH calibration.
To take pH measurements:
• Remove the protective cap and rinse the electrode with water.
• Collect some sample in a clean, dry beaker.
• Preferably, rinse the electrode with a small amount of sample. Discard the rinse.
• Submerse the electrode tip approximately 3 cm (1¼”) into the sample to be tested and stir the
sample gently. Make sure the electrode junction is completely submersed.

• Allow time for the electrode to stabilize in the sample. When the
reading is stable.
If measurements are taken successively in different samples, it is recommended to rinse the
electrodes thoroughly with deionized or distilled water and then with some of the next sample to
prevent cross-contamination.
pH measurements are affected by temperature. HANNA® Digital pH electrodes include a built-in
temperature sensor and automatically calculate corrected pH values. The measured temperature is
displayed on the screen with the pH measurements.

Incompatible Probe:
The connected probe is not compatible with this device.
Incompatible Calibration:
The probe’s current calibration is not compatible with this
meter. The calibration must be cleared to use this probe.
Exceeded Probe Range:
The pH and/or temperature measurement exceed the
specifications of the probe. The affected measurement value(s)
will be flashing.
Broken Temperature Sensor:
The temperature sensor inside the probe is broken.
Temperature compensation will revert to a fixed value of
25 °C (77 °C).
Cal Due:
The probe has no calibration. See section Probe Calibration.

7.6. pH ELECTRODE CONDITIONING AND MAINTENANCE
Remove the protective cap of the pH electrode.
DO NOT BE ALARMED IF SALT DEPOSITS ARE PRESENT.
This is normal with electrodes. They will disappear when rinsed with water.
During transport, tiny bubbles of air may form inside the glass bulb affecting proper functioning of
the electrode. These bubbles can be removed by “shaking down” the electrode as you would do with
a glass thermometer. If the bulb and/or junction is dry, soak the electrode in HI70300 or HI80300
storage solution for at least one hour.
For refillable electrodes:
If the filling solution (electrolyte) is more than 2½ cm (1”) below the fill hole, add HI7082 or
HI8082 3.5M KCl Electrolyte Solution for double junction electrodes.
Unscrew the fill hole cover during measurements so the liquid reference junction maintains
an outward flow of electrolyte.
Measurement
Rinse the electrode tip with distilled water. Submerse the tip 3 cm (1¼”) in the sample and stir
gently for a few seconds. For a faster response and to avoid cross-contamination of the samples, rinse
the electrode tip with a few drops of the solution to be tested, before taking measurements.
29
PROBE MODE
Storage Procedure
To minimize clogging and ensure a quick response time, the glass bulb and the junction should be
kept moist and not allowed to dry out.
Replace the solution in the protective cap with a few drops of HI70300 or HI80300 Storage
Solution or, in its absence, Filling Solution (HI7082 or HI8082 for double junction electrodes).
Follow the preparation procedure before taking measurements.
Note: NEVER STORE THE ELECTRODE IN DISTILLED OR DEIONIZED WATER.
Periodic Maintenance
Inspect the electrode and the cable. The cable used for connection to the instrument must be intact
and there must be no points of broken insulation on the cable or cracks on the electrode stem or
bulb. Connectors must be perfectly clean and dry. If any scratches or cracks are present, replace the
electrode. Rinse off any salt deposits with water.
For refillable electrodes: Refill the reference chamber with fresh electrolyte (HI7082 or HI8082 for
double junction electrodes). Allow the electrode to stand upright for 1 hour.
Follow the Storage Procedure above.
Cleaning Procedure
Use diagnostic messages to aid pH electrode troubleshooting. Several cleaning solutions are
available:
• General – Soak in Hanna HI7061 or HI8061 General Cleaning Solution for
approximately ½ hour.
• Protein –Soak in Hanna HI7073 or HI8073 Protein Cleaning Solution for 15 minutes.
• Inorganic – Soak in Hanna HI7074 Inorganic Cleaning Solution for 15 minutes.
• Oil/grease – Rinse with Hanna HI7077 or HI8077 Oil and Fat Cleaning Solution.
Note: After performing any of the cleaning procedures, rinse the electrode thoroughly with
distilled water, refill the reference chamber with fresh electrolyte (not necessary for gel- filled
electrodes) and soak the electrode in HI70300 or HI80300 Storage Solution for at least
1 hour before taking measurements.
Temperature Correlation For pH Sensitive Glass
Verify the temperature range by reading the limits on electrodes cap. The pH electrode’s life also
depends on the temperature that is used. If constantly cycled between two temperatures, the life of
the electrode is drastically reduced.
