PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION
Remove the instrument and accessories from the packaging
and examine it carefully to make sure that no damage
has occurred during shipping. Notify your nearest Hanna
Instruments Customer Service Center if damage is observed.
Each HI99181 is delivered in a rugged carrying case and
is supplied with:
• HI14143/50 pH/temperature probe with flat tip, DIN
connector and 1m (3.3’) cable
• HI70004 pH 4.01 buffer (1 sachet)
• HI70007 pH 7.01 buffer (1 sachet)
• HI700620 Cleaning and disinfection solution for skin
residuals (1 sachet)
• HI700621 Electrode cleaning solution for skin grease
and sebum (1 sachet)
• 100 mL beaker (1 pc.)
• 1.5V AAA alkaline batteries
• Instrument quality certificate
• Electrode quality certificate
• Instruction manual
Note: Save all packing material until you are sure that
the instrument works correctly. Any damaged or defective
item must be returned in its original packing material
with the supplied accessories.
The HI99181 portable pH meter together with a
HI14143/50 combination pH electrode, is designed to
measure pH on skin and scalp.
The HI99181 features a two button operation system and
is simple to use. It has a waterproof and compact casing,
large dual-line display, and automatic pH calibration at
one or two points.
The HI14143/50 has a built-in temperature sensor for
temperature compensated pH readings and an integrated
preamplifier to provide measurements impervious to noise
and electrical interferences. The flat tip of the HI14143/50
provides optimal contact between the sample and the
sensor. The HI14143/50 has an open junction design and
utilizes a non-flowing gelled reference electrolyte. Both the
pH sensing surface and reference junction come into contact
with the skin and equilibrate quickly and reproducibly. It
also has a lower profile for easier handling compared to
laboratory sensors; the glass body is just 50 mm in length.

Each meter is supplied with batteries. Before using the meter
for the first time, open the battery compartment and insert
batteries, observing the polarity (see “Battery Replacement“).
CONNECTING THE ELECTRODE
With the meter turned off, connect the HI14143/50 probe
to the DIN socket on the bottom of the meter by aligning the
pins and pushing in the plug firmly. Remove the protective
cap from the probe before taking any measurements.
TURNING THE METER ON
To turn the meter ON, press the button on
the front of the meter. If it does not turn on, make
sure that the batteries are properly installed in their place.
The meter is provided with an active acoustic signal when
a key is pressed. At start-up the meter displays all LCD
segments for a few seconds, followed by the percentage
indication of the remaining battery life, displaying “WAIT“
until electrode check is in process then the meter enters the
normal measurement mode.

pH MEASUREMENT & CALIBRATION
Make sure the meter has been calibrated before use.
If the probe is dry, soak it in HI70300 storage solution for
30 minutes to reactivate it. If soiled, clean the electrode by
soaking in cleaning solution for 20 minutes, then rinse the tip
and soak in storage solution at least 30 minutes before use.
Recalibrate before using.
Rinse the electrode off well with distilled/deionized water
or HI70960 preparation solution for solid or semi-solid
samples. Shake off excess droplets.
Place the flat tip of the electrode on
the sample to be tested. Wait until
the tag on the LCD disappears.
10
OPERATIONAL GUIDE
The LCD displays the pH value (automatically compensated
for temperature) on the primary LCD, while the secondary
LCD displays the sample temperature.
If measurements are taken in different samples successively,
rinse the probe tip thoroughly in distilled or deionized water
to eliminate cross-contamination.
For better accuracy, frequent calibration of the pH sensor
with the meter is recommended. In addition, the meter
must be recalibrated:
a) whenever the pH electrode is replaced.
b) after testing aggressive chemicals.
c) when high accuracy is required.
d) at least once a month.
e) after cleaning the sensor.
pH calibration
Enter calibration mode while in pH
measurement mode. Place the sensor
into the first calibration buffer. If
performing a two-point calibration,
use pH 7.01 (pH 6.86 for NIST) buffer first. The meter
will enter the calibration mode, displaying “pH 7.01 USE”
and tag blinking (or “pH 6.86 USE” for NIST).
Follow directions for single and two-point calibration below:
Single-point calibration
1. Place the probe in any buffer from the selected buffer
set. The meter will automatically recognize the buffer value.
2. If the buffer is not recognized or the calibration offset
is out of the accepted range “---- WRONG“ is displayed.
3. If the buffer is recognized “REC“ is displayed then
“WAIT“ until the calibration is accepted.
If using pH 7.01 (or pH 6.86 for NIST), after acceptance
of the buffer press any key to exit. The ”SAVE” message is
displayed and the meter returns to pH measurement mode.
If using pH 4.01 or 10.01 (or pH 9.18 for NIST) buffer the
”SAVE” message is displayed and the meter returns to pH
measurement mode.
11
OPERATIONAL GUIDE
12
Two-point calibration
Proceed with steps 1 through 3 under single-point
calibration using 7.01 pH (pH 6.86 for NIST) buffer first.
Then follow steps below:
The ”pH 4.01 USE” message is then displayed.
Place the probe in the second calibration buffer (pH 4.01
or 10.01, or, if using NIST, pH 4.01 or 9.18). When the
second buffer is accepted, the LCD will display “SAVE”
for 1 second and the meter will return to the normal
measurement mode.
If the buffer is not recognized or the slope is out of accepted
range ”--- WRONG” is displayed. Change the buffer, clean
the electrode or press any key to exit calibration.
For better accuracy it is always recommended to carry out
a two-point calibration.
After the calibration procedure has been completed, the
“CAL” is turned on together with the calibrated points.
Exiting calibration and resetting default values
After entering the calibration mode and before the first point
is accepted, it is possible to quit the procedure and return
to the last calibration data by pressing the button. The
LCD displays “ESC“ for 1 second and the meter returns to
normal mode.
To reset the default values and clear a previous calibration,
press the SET button after entering the calibration mode
and before the first point is accepted.
The LCD displays “CLEAR“ for 1 second, the meter resets
to the default calibration and the “CAL” with the calibrated
points on the LCD disappears.
OPERATIONAL GUIDE
ELECTRODE CONDITION
The display is provided with a probe icon (unless the
feature is disabled from setup) which indicates the electrode
status after calibration. The “condition” remains active for
12 hours (unless the batteries are removed).
The electrode condition is evaluated only if the current
calibration has two points.
5 bars: excellent condition
4 bars: very good condition
3 bars: good condition
2 bars: fair condition
1 bar: poor condition
1 bar blinking: very poor condition
With 1 bar it is recommended to clean the electrode and
recalibrate. If there is still only 1 bar or 1 bar blinking
replace the probe.
Sensor check
Setting the meter to pH-mV range the user can check the
sensor status at any time. The offset value is the reading
in pH 7.01 buffer (@ 25 °C/77 °F). If this reading is
outside the range ±30 mV, the electrode is considered
“very poor”. The slope value of the sensor is the difference
between readings in pH 7.01 and in pH 4.01 buffers. When
the slope reaches the value of about 150 mV, the electrode
is considered “very poor“. When “poor“ or “very poor“, it
is recommended to replace it with a new one.
Note: To ensure reliable readings, the electrode must
be cleaned with cleaning solution and then hydrated in
storage solution for a minimum of 30 minutes before
calibrating the probe.
