GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The HI 84184 is a low cost, easy to use, fluoride ISE instrument that performs automatic analysis
with all the necessary calculations assuring to the user a simple and effective interface.
The instrument comes with a powerful and effective built-in algorithm to analyse the shape of the ISE
electrode response and to determine the reaction completion.
By simply pressing the Start key, the instrument performs automatic analysis, all the necessary
calculations and verifications. The result is immediately displayed in convenient units, then the
instrument is ready for another measurement.
SIGNIFICANCE OF USE
Fluoride ion (F¯) comes from grapes used for wine and its usual concentration value varies between
0.1 and 2 mg/L. Higher levels of fluoride content in wine can derive from cryolite used by farmers
as an insecticide in the vine.
The HI 84184 ISE Fluoride meter measures the fluoride content in wine using an ion selective electrode.
The used method is double standard addition, and the result is readily displayed in F¯ mg/L (ppm).

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
The determination of fluoride concentration is made according to double standard addition method.
This technique enables an unknown concentration and the electrode’s slope factor to be determined
simultaneously.
The Automatic Temperature compensation is available using HI 7662-T temperature probe. By
setting the electrode isopotential point and enabling temperature compensation option in Setup
menu, the obtained concentration is temperature compensated.
The accuracy of the obtained result depends on the stability of the mV reading in every step of the
measurement.
Three selectable stability criteria can be selected in Setup menu. Select Medium or Accurate
criteria in order to have accurate analysis.

TIPS FOR AN ACCURATE MEASUREMENT
The instructions listed bellow should be carefully followed during analysis to ensure best accuracy.
• Rinse the electrode pair with distilled or deionised water between samples, and blot dry with
a lab wipe or other soft disponible absorbent toweling.
• Select the adequate stability criteria.
• Analyse the wine sample at room temperature.
MEASUREMENT PROCEDURE
• Fill the beaker up to the 50 mL mark with sample; add
10 mL of HI 84184-0 TISAB W/5, place the stir bar
into the beaker and then place the beaker in the
appropriate place on the instrument top.
• Place the electrode holder on the top of the beaker
and secure it by turning clockwise.

of HI 84184-1 Standard when the meter asks for it. If the
instrument is not in auto confirm mode, press READ to
start next measurement step.
• Wait until the reading is stable, CFM key displayed, if
the “Reading confirm” option is selected, and then
press CFM. If the “Reading confirm” option is
disabled the instrument automatically memorizes the
reading when this is stable and waits to add standard.
Until the standard addition is detected the instrument
will beep if beeper is enabled in Setup.
• Use the 1000 µL automatic pipette to add exactly 1 mL
of HI 84184-2 Standard when the meter asks for it. If the
instrument is not in auto confirm mode, press READ to
start next measurement step.
• Wait until the reading is stable, CFM key displayed, if
the “Reading confirm” option is selected, and then
press CFM. If the “Reading confirm” option is
disabled the instrument automatically memorizes the
reading when this is stable and computes result.
• At the end of the measurement procedure the result is
displayed as mg/L (ppm) F¯.

ELECTRODE CONDITIONING & MAINTENANCE
PREPARATION PROCEDURE
Preparation of fluoride electrode:
• Remove the protective cap from the HI 61010 fluoride sensor’s tip.
• Screw the fluoride cell into the electrode body.
• Soak in fluoride standard.
Preparation of reference electrode:
• Unwrap ParafilmTM seal found over ceramic junction on inner stern of the reference electrode
and discard. This is only used for shipping.
• Rinse inner stern with deionized water making certain to wet o-ring found on the inner stern.
15
• Reassemble reference electrode by gently pushing the inner assembly into the outer body,
sliding spring down cable, and screwing cap into place.
• Remove fill hole cover and o-ring or fill hole spout.
• Using the dropper pipette provided, add a few drops of HI 7075 filling solution to the
reference electrode, wetting the o-ring and rinsing out the fill solution chamber.
• Holding the body of the electrode depress the black cap with your thumb. This permits the
fill solution to drain out of the body. Verify if the electrode returns to its original position.
(You may need to gently assist for this to occur).
• Tighten the electrode cap onto the body and fill electrode body with HI 7075 filling solution
until fill solution volume is just below fill hole.
• Place sensor and reference electrode into electrode holder and connect the Cable Connectors
to the instrument.
Note: During measurement always operate reference electrode with the fill hole open.
CLEANING PROCEDURE
• Rinse the fluoride electrode with deionised water. Check to see if the small scratches have
been eliminated.
• Soak the fluoride electrode in a standard for one hour.
• Rinse with deionised water and blot dry.
REFERENCE ELECTRODE CLEANING
• Drain the old filling solution, rinse with an adequate HI 7075 solution, drain, then refill with
HI 7075 solution.
• Do not use an electrode if cristalised salts are visible inside the electrode. Drain electrode,
disassemble and rinse internal body with deionised water. Reassemble and refill with fresh
refill solution.
• The internal chamber of this electrode is gell filled. If the electrode has been left dry for long
periods of time the gell may be dehydrated and stable measurements may not be obtainable.
Disassemble electrode and soak internal assembly in HI 7075 filling solution. Verify the
ceramic is wetted by the fill solution. Warming the solution slightly (50 °C) before soaking
will hasten this process. Permit the electrode to cool completely while immersed in this
solution.
QUICK CHECK OF THE ELECTRODE SLOPE
• Connect the electrode and the reference electrode to the instrument.
• Press and hold down ESC, and HELP keys simultaneously and power on the meter. Wait
until the instrument enters in the reading check mode.
• Place 50 mL of deionized water into the beaker with a stir bar.
• Add 1 mL of HI 84184-1 Standard. Record the mV value when stable.
• Add an additional 10 mL of HI 84184-1 Standard to the solution. Wait for the reading to
stabilize and record the mV value.
16
• The difference between the two recorded mV values gives the slope of the electrode. An
acceptable value for this slope is 56 ± 4mV.
• Press ESC to leave the reading check mode.
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 deionized water.
Add filling solution dosing to maintain a good head pressure. For optimal electrode response this
level should be maintained and not be allowed to drop more than 2-3 cm (1 inch below fill hole).
STORAGE PROCEDURE
The HI 61010 sensor can be stored in standards for short periods of time and should be stored
dry with the protective cap on, when not in use, for long periods of time.
The HI 5315 reference electrode may be stored in air or aqueous solutions between sample
measurements.
If the electrode will be used frequently and needs to be ready for use, take measures to prevent
evaporation of fill solution. Top off fill solution, replace o-ring, fill hole cover on the fill hole
opening, and place protective cap over junction tip. Store the electrode upright. Before using,
flush junction once and top off fill solution.
For long term storage, disassemble electrode and wash all salts from assembly with deionized
water. Wrap ceramic junction on inner stern in ParafilmTM or other sealing film. Store dry and
disassembled.
MALFUNCTIONING
Reading fluctuates or drifts:
Could be due to dirty or blocked reference electrode junction: follow the cleaning procedure
above. Repeat the measurement with a fresh potassium electrode.
