Q. How do i measure the conductivity of ultrapure water?

A. Measuring the conductivity in ultra pure water can be a challenge. Pure water has a very low, but not quite zero, electrical conductivity. This conductivity provides a probe into fundamental properties of water, including the electrochemical mobility of the hydrogen and hydroxide ions.

Deviation from this value is a measure of trace ionic impurities. Ultrapure water (UPW), with impurities at or below the sub-parts-per-billion range, is used extensively in many critical applications. Applications include chip fabrication for semiconductors, intravenous solutions for pharmaceuticals, and in high-pressure boilers.

Camlab have several meters that can measure the conductivity of pure water.

The Myron Ultrameter II 6PFCE  
6Pfc-frontal-05-27-2011

High level accuracy has been achieved through advanced four-electrode conductivity cell technology, a unique pH/ORP sensor and powerful microprocessor based circuitry. The Myron L FCE   function measures the real, unaltered chemistry of source water including moment by moment changes in that chemistry.

Conductivity range 0-9999 µS/cm or 10-200 mS/cm with a resolution of 0.01 <100µS

Auto temperature compensation 0-71ºC

Easy Calibration

All calibrations are quick to perform by pressing two keys. When calibration is necessary the display prompts the user to calibrate and the right choice of buffers. Plus there are field settings factory set that can be used.

Advanced Features:

  • 3 calibration points for greater accuracy
  • Fully automated temperature compensation
  • User adjustable temperature compensation
  • Auto shut off maximises the life of the batteries

Innovative Engineering:

Simplified methodology-

1.fill the cell cup

2.push the parameter key

3. Take the reading

4. Wireless data transfer with bluDock option installed

The Myron 6PIIFC is a great choice for field measurements, irrigation water, hydroponics, Laboratories, wastewater, reverse osmosis, cooling towers and desalination plants.

Camlab can also supply the correct Myron conductivity standards to calibrate the instrument and check standards. Always use the 7000µs/cm standard for the Myron Ultrameters and use a lower value check standard to verify before use.
