APPLICATION NOTE NO. 34
Instructions for use of Conductivity Cell
Filling and Storage Device P/N 50087 and 50087.1
Revised October 2012
This application note provides instructions for use of PN 50087 / 50087.1 syringe and tubing assembly in rinsing, cleaning, and storing conductivity sensors. The tubing assembly consists of a length of 6.35 mm (1/4 inch) I.D. tube connected by a plastic reducing union to a short piece of 11.1 mm (7/16 inch) I.D. tube. Refer to Application Note 2D: Instructions for Care and Cleaning of Conductivity Cells for information on water and solutions recommended for use.
Note: This procedure can also be used with the SBE 16, 16plus, 16plus-IM, 19, 19plus, and 25, which are no longer in production.
Procedure for Use
- CTDs with a TC duct or hose barb fitting -- remove the plastic reducing union and connect the smaller diameter tubing directly to the TC duct / fitting.
- CTDs without a TC duct or hose barb fitting (older instruments) -- leave the reducing union and large diameter tubing attached and carefully connect the tubing directly to the end of the glass conductivity cell [Figure 2].
REMOVE THE SYRINGE AND TUBING ASSEMBLY BEFORE DEPLOYMENT !
