6 Steps for Taking Care of Your Multiparameter

Multiparameter meters are great tools used for measuring different parameters such as pH, conductivity, temperature, and dissolved oxygen levels in water or other liquids. To ensure that your multiparameter meter remains in optimal condition and delivers accurate readings, you need to take proper care of it. Here are 5 steps to consider when caring for your meter.

1. Cleaning

It is important that you clean your meter after each use. During use, dirt and debris can build on the meter’s surface, including the electrodes and sensors. To prevent damage and ensure accuracy, you can use a soft cloth or sponge along with the correct solutions to clean your meter properly. Ensure you pay extra close attention to the electrodes and sensors as they are the most important components of your meter.

2. Storage

A Good storage solution is crucial to keeping your meter safe and protected. Always store your meter in a clean, dry place when it’s not in use, generally, a hardened protection case is recommended. Make sure it’s kept out of direct sunlight and away from heat, which can damage the meter and cause it to malfunction.

3. Calibration

Calibration is an integral part of ensuring the accuracy of your meter readings. You should calibrate your meter regularly, as recommended by Hanna’s guidelines when using our meters, using fresh calibration standards. 
Calibration is crucial as it helps to ensure that your meter readings stay accurate and reliable and so your meter produces the correct results.

4. Batteries

Replacing the batteries should be done on time for the proper functioning of your meter. Check the battery levels regularly and replace them as needed. Using a low battery can cause inaccurate readings, and in some cases can even damage the meter.

5. Care

You should try to always handle your meter with the utmost care by avoiding dropping it or exposing it to physical trauma. Mishandling your meter can damage its delicate components, affecting its accuracy and reliability. If you accidentally drop your meter or notice any damage, have it checked by a professional as soon as possible to avoid further damage and false results.

Use the correctly specified solutions for each parameter you’re measuring, following the manufacturer’s instructions for preparation and use. Using inappropriate solutions will affect the accuracy of your meter readings and is known to damage the electrodes and sensors.

In conclusion, by following these tips, you can ensure the accuracy and reliability of your multiparameter meter and ensure a healthy lifespan. Proper care of your meter should be followed for obtaining accurate readings, increasing the meter’s durability, and reduce the need for frequent maintenance or repair.
