OPERATIONAL GUIDE
INITIAL PREPARATION
The instrument is supplied complete with batteries. See Batteries Replacement for details, page 63.
To prepare the instrument for field measurements close the serial communication socket with proper
stopper (to ensure waterproof protection).
Connect the EC probe to the DIN connector on the top of the instrument. Tighten the thread ring. Make
sure the probe sleeve is properly inserted.
Turn the instrument ON by pressing ON/OFF key.
At start-up the display will show the Hanna Instruments logo for a few seconds followed by the per‑
centage indication of the remaining battery life and the “Loading Log...” message, then enters the
measurement mode.
The Auto Power Off feature turns the instrument off after a set period (default 30 min) with no button
pressed to save battery life. To set another period or to disable this feature, see SETUP menu on
page 35. The instrument continues to monitor the inputs and memorize readings if the automatic
logging is enabled and started. To stop autologging press StopLog key or simply power off the
instrument by pressing the ON/OFF key.
The Auto Light Off backlight feature turns the backlight off after a set period (default 1 min) with
no buttons pressed. To set another period or to disable this feature, see SETUP menu on page 35.
MEASUREMENTS
Immerse the probe into the solution to be tested. The sleeve holes must be completely submerged. Tap
the probe repeatedly to remove any air bubbles that may be trapped inside the sleeve.
If needed, press RANGE repeatedly until the desired range (EC, Resistivity, TDS, Salinity) is selected
on the LCD.
Allow for the reading to stabilize. The main LCD line displays the measurement in the selected range,
while the temperature is displayed on the lower LCD line.

OPERATIONAL GUIDE
EC range
The conductivity range is from 0 to 400 mS/cm. The actual conductivity range (the uncompen‑
sated conductivity) is up to 1000 mS/cm. The instrument will display conductivity readings up to
1000 mS/cm.
Note: The symbol in front of the temperature reading means that the temperature can be
entered by the user (Manual option selected in SETUP, or temperature out of range).
Resistivity range
The reciprocal of the conductivity of a material is the resistivity.
TDS range
A conductivity measured value can be corrected to a total dissolved solids value using the TDS factor.
Salinity
The salinity is derived from the conductivity of a sample.
Salt % range
The percent of salinity in a sample is dependent on the sample and the salinity coefficient.
10
OPERATIONAL GUIDE
For practical reasons, the salinity of a solution is derived from the salinity of the seawater. Two methods
of calculating the salinity from the conductivity are supported:
• Natural seawater scale
• Practical salinity scale
Natural seawater scale (UNESCO 1966)
According to the definition, salinity of a sample in ppt is calculated using the following formula:
C (sample)
RT= T
C(35;15)·rT
rT=1.0031·10-9 T4–6.9698·10-7 T3+1.104259·10-4 T2+2.00564·10-2 T+6.766097·10-1
R=RT+10-5RT(RT–1.0)(T–15.0)[96.7-72.0RT+37.3RT2–(0.63+0.21RT2)(T–15.0)]
S=-0.08996+28.2929729R+12.80832R2–10.67869R3+5.98624R4–1.32311R5
where:
RT
- coefficient;
CT(sample) - uncompensated conductivity at T °C;
C(35;15)= 42.914 mS/cm - the corresponding conductivity of KCl solution
containing a mass of 32.4356 g KCl / 1 Kg solution;
rT
- temperature compensation polynom.
Note: The formula can be applied for temperatures between 10 °C and 31 °C.
To access this range press Mode while in Salinity range until the seawater scale [SW] is
displayed.
Practical salinity scale
This is a practical scale based on the precise measurement of the electrical conductivity of a solution
with a known salinity range.
The relationship derived from the scale relates salinity, conductivity, temperature and pressure
and use a solution with a salinity of 35 ‰ as datum point. This is taken to have a conductivity
of 42.914 mS/cm of 15 °C at standard atmospheric pressure.
11
OPERATIONAL GUIDE
According to the definition, salinity of a sample in PSU (practical salinity units) is calculated using
the following formula:
- coefficient;
RT
CT(sample) - uncompensated conductivity at T °C;
C(35;15)= 42.914 mS/cm - the corresponding conductivity of KCl solution
containing a mass of 32.4356 g KCl/1 Kg solution;
rT
- temperature compensation polynom
b0= 0.0005
a0 = 0.008
a1 = -0.1692
b1= -0.0056
a2 = 25.3851
b2= -0.0066
a3 = 14.0941
b3= -0.0375
a4 = -7.0261
b4= 0.0636
a5 = 2.7081
b5= -0.0144
c0 = 0.008
c1 = 0.0005
X = 400RT
Y = 100RT
f (T)= (T-15)/[1+0.0162(T-15)]
Notes: The formula can be applied for salinity values between 0 and 42 PSU.
The formula can be applied for temperatures between -2 °C and 35 °C.
12
Notes: If the meter displays the top of the range blinking, the reading is out of range.
If the stability indicator “ ” blinks, the reading is unstable.
Make sure the meter is calibrated before taking measurements.
If measurements are taken successively in different samples, for accurate readings it is recommended to rinse the probe thoroughly with deionized water before immersing it into the samples.
TDS reading is obtained by multiplying the EC reading by the TDS factor, which has a default
value of 0.50. It is possible to change the TDS factor in the 0.40 to 1.00 range by entering
SETUP mode.
The probes designed to work with this instrument have an internal ID identification. Every time the
instrument detects probe changing, it reminds the user to update the cell constant of the new probe
being used and to calibrate in the appropriate EC range.
OPERATIONAL GUIDE
To reach this range press Mode while in Salinity range until the practical salinity scale [PSU] is
displayed.
13
AUTORANGING
The EC, Resistivity and TDS scales are autoranging. The meter automatically sets the scale with the
highest possible resolution.
By pressing Lock, the autoranging feature is disabled and the current range is frozen on the LCD.
The “Range: Locked” message is displayed. To restore the autoranging option press “AutoRng”
functional key again.
The autoranging mode is also disabled by selecting a fixed range in the SETUP menu. While in fixed
range mode the instrument will display the readings with the fixed resolution. A maximum of 6 digits
can be displayed. The top of the fixed range is displayed blinking when the reading exceeds this value.
To disable fixed range mode enter SETUP and select autoranging mode.
Note: Autoranging is automatically restored if the range is changed, if the calibration mode
is entered, or if the meter is turned off and back on again.
14
TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION
Two selectable temparature sources are available: reading directly from the sensor inside the probe
or manual entry.
Three options of compensating temperature are available:
Linear Temperature Compensation: The conductivity of a solution with a specific electrolyte
concentration changes with temperature. The relationship of the change in conductivity as a function
of temperature is described by a solution’s temperature coefficient. This coefficient varies with each
solution and is user selectable (see SETUP mode).
Non Linear Temperature Compensation: for natural water measurements.
The conductivity of natural water shows strong non linear temperature behavior.
A polynomial relationship is used to improve the accuracy of the calculated results.
Note: Conductivity measurements of natural water can only be performed at temperatures
ranging from 0 to 36 °C. Otherwise the “Out T range” message will be displayed blinking.
No Temperature Compensation (No TC): The temperature shown on the LCD is not taken into
account.
To select the desired option enter Setup menu (see page 35).
If the temperature is out of the -20 °C - 120 °C range the instrument will do no temperature
compensation.
15
CONDUCTIVITY VERSUS TEMPERATURE CHART
16
The conductivity of an aqueous solution is the measure of its ability to carry an electrical current by
means of ionic motion.
The conductivity invariably increases as the temperature rises.
It is affected by the type and number of ions in the solution and by the viscosity of the solution itself.
Both parameters are temperature dependent. The dependency of conductivity on temperature is
expressed as a relative change per Celsius degree at a particular temperature, commonly as percent
per °C (%/°C).
The following table lists the temperature dependence of the Hanna Instruments calibration buffers.

USP MEASUREMENT
Pharmaceutical laboratories working in the US market are obliged to respect the regulations set down
by the US Pharmacopoeia (USP). The 5th supplement of USP24-NF19 lays down the rules for checking
the quality of pure or fully deionized water used for the production of injection products.
The conductivity of water provides information on its chemical composition. It is therefore logical that
conductivity is the main parameter to measure.
The conductivity of water is a measure of the ion mobility through this water. The conductivity partly
depends on the pH, the temperature and the amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide, which has been
dissolved in water to form ions (intrinsic conductivity). The conductivity also depends on the chloride,
sodium and ammonium ions initially present in water (extraneous conductivity).
The conductivity (intrinsic and extraneous) of the water is measured at Stage 1 and compared to
values listed in a table to evaluate if the studied water is suitable or not for use in pharmaceutical
applications. If the sample fails Stage 1, additional tests have to be performed (Stage 2 and 3) in
order to determine if the excessive conductivity value is due to intrinsic factors or extraneous ions.
USP Requirements
Automatic temperature correction must not be used.
Instrument specifications
Minimum resolution of 0.1 µS/cm on the lowest range. Excluding the cell accuracy, the instrument
accuracy must be ±0.1 µS/cm.
Meter calibration
It is accomplished by replacing the conductivity cell with precision resolution traceable to primary
standards (accurate to ±0.1% of the stated value) or an equivalently accurate resistance device.
Cell calibration
Meter conductivity must be measured accurately using calibrated instrumentation. The conductivity
cell constant must be known in ±2%.
Before starting water analysis calibrate in the lowest EC range or set the probe cell constant (enter
the value written in the calibration certificate delivered with the probe).
Stage 1
Determine the temperature and conductivity of the water.
• Rinse the probe carefully with deionized water. Check that the 4 rings, sleeve holes and the
temperature sensor are immersed in the sample and that no air bubbles are trapped. Connect
the probe to the meter, enter USP mode and press the Stage 1 key. The instrument will perform
a temperature and conductivity measurement (using a non-temperature corrected conductivity
reading).
17
USP MEASUREMENT
• Using the Stage 1 temperature and conductivity requirement table the corresponding conductivity
limit at that temperature is determined.
• If the measured conductivity is not greater than the table value the water meets the requirements
of the test for conductivity. If the conductivity is higher than the table value, proceed with Stage 2.

Note: Stability criteria <0.5 %/min corresponds in fact to a change in conductivity <0.02 µS/cm
per minute (equivalent to 0.1 mS/cm per 5 minutes), as required in the Stage 2 USP document.
• Transfer a sufficient amount of water (100 mL or more) to a thermostatic vessel, and stir the
test specimen. Adjust the temperature and maintain it at 25±1 °C. We recommend using a
thermostatic bath.
• Rinse the cell carefully with deionized water. Place the conductivity probe in the sample and dip
it in the thermostatic vessel containing the sample. Check that the 4 rings and sleeve holes are
immersed in the solution.
• Press Stage 2.
• When the conductivity value is stable, if the conductivity is not greater than 2.1 µS/cm the water
meets the requirements of the test, for conductivity.
If the conductivity is greater than 2.1 µS/cm proceed with Stage 3.
Stage 3
Determine the combined effect of the CO2 and pH.
Use a Hanna Instruments pH meter.
Take care that the instrument is calibrated in at least two points using pH 4.01 and pH 7.01 Hanna
Instruments buffers.
Perform the following test within approximately 5 minutes of the conductivity determination while
maintaining the sample temperature at 25±1 °C.
• Add the Saturated KCl Solution to the sample (0.3 mL per 100 mL of the test specimen), and
determine the pH to the nearest 0.1 pH unit.
• Press Stage 3 key, then enter the corresponding pH reading.
• Referring to the Stage 3 pH and conductivity requirement table the instrument determines the
conductivity limit at the measured pH value. If the measured conductivity is no greater than the
conductivity requirements for the pH determined the water meets the requirements of the test for
conductivity. If the measured conductivity is greater than this value or the pH is outside of the
range of 5.0 to 7.0, the water does not meet the requirements of the test for conductivity.

EC CALIBRATION
It is recommended to calibrate the instrument frequently, especially if high accuracy is required.
The EC range should be recalibrated:
• Whenever the EC electrode is replaced.
• At least once a week.
• Before USP measurement.
• After testing aggressive chemicals.
• When calibration alarm time out is expired - “CAL DUE” blinks (if feature is enabled in SETUP).
• If “Outside Cal Range” message blinks during EC measurement (the measurement range is not
covered by current calibration, if feature is enabled in SETUP).
Note: TDS and Resistivity readings are automatically derived from the EC reading and no
specific calibration is needed.
PROCEDURE
HI98192 instrument offers a choice of 7 memorized standards (0.00 µS/cm, 84.0 µS/cm,
1.413 mS/cm, 5.00 mS/cm, 12.88 mS/cm, 80.0 mS/cm and 111.8 mS/cm).
For accurate EC measurements, it is recommended to perform a calibration in maximum allowed
points. However, at least a two point calibration is suggested (offset calibration in 0.00 µS and one
in any other calibration standard).
The instrument will automatically recognize the standards and skip the standard used during calibration.
• If a five point calibration is performed, one of the points must be 0.0 µS (offset).
• Do not remove probe sleeve. Pour sufficient calibration standard to ensure the top holes in probe
sleeve are covered. Raise and lower probe in the standard to ensure the cell channel is filled with
standard. For accurate calibration use two beakers for each standard solution, the first one for
rinsing the electrode and the second one for calibration.

Coef” in the SETUP menu has been set to a different value, when exiting calibration mode, the
displayed value might be different from the nominal standard value.
32
EXPIRED CALIBRATION
The instrument is provided with a real time clock (RTC), in order to monitor the time elapsed since
the last EC/NaCl calibration.
The real time clock is reset every time the instrument is calibrated and the “Expired Calibration”
status is triggered when the instrument detects a calibration time out. The “CAL DUE” tag will start
blinking to warn the user that the instrument should be recalibrated.
GOOD LABORATORY PRACTICE (GLP)
GLP is a set of functions that allows storage and retrieval of data regarding the maintenance and
status of the electrode.
All data regarding EC and NaCl calibration is stored for the user to review when necessary.
The calibration time out can be set (see SETUP for details, page 35) from 1 to 7 days or can be disabled.
For example, if a 4 days time out has been selected, the instrument will issue the alarm exactly
4 days after the last calibration.
However, if at any moment the expiration value is changed (e.g. to 5 days), then the alarm will be
immediately recalculated and appear 5 days after the last calibration.
Notes: When the instrument is not calibrated or calibration is cleared (default values loaded)
there is no “Expired Calibration”, and the display always shows the “CAL DUE” tag blinking.
When an abnormal condition in the RTC is detected, the instrument forces the “Expired
Calibration” status.

• Prepare a vessel containing ice and water and another one containing hot water (at approximately
50 °C or 122 °F). Place insulation material around the vessels to minimize temperature changes.
• Use a calibrated thermometer with a resolution of 0.1 °C as a reference thermometer. Connect the
HI763133 EC probe with built in temperature sensor to the appropriate socket.
• Immerse the HI763133 probe into the vessel with ice and water as close as possible to the reference
thermometer. Allow a few seconds for the probe to stabilize.
• When the reading is stable and within range of the selected calibration point, the CFM functional
key is displayed.

PROBE MAINTENANCE
Rinse the probe with clean water after measurements. If more cleaning is required, remove the probe
sleeve and clean the probe with a cloth or a nonabrasive detergent. Make sure to reinsert the sleeve
onto the probe properly and in the right direction. After cleaning the probe, recalibrate the instrument.
The platinum rings are sustained with glass. Take great care while handling the probe.
REPLATINIZATION
The coating of platinum black on the electrodes of the conductivity cell should be inspected before
and after use for signs of flaking or loss of material. If the coating seems poor, cleaning and repla‑
tinization is required.
To perform probe replatinization, enter calibration screen from EC range by pressing CAL key.
Put the probe into a beaker with replatinization solution and press Start.
The process can be interrupted by pressing Stop or ESC key.
65
The replatinization process takes about 5 minutes.
ACCESSORIES
Remove the probe from the replatinization solution and rinse it with deionized water.
