Secondary Standards

Secondary standards provide a fast way to check calibration without the burden of making primary standards. Based on Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, the operator can calibrate a colorimeter using a permanganate primary standard or a chlorine primary standard. Once the meter is calibrated using the primary standard, the operator can insert secondary standards periodically to evaluate the calibration of the instrument.

  • ƒƒ Secondary standard kit contains a blank and 3 standards for low, mid-range, and high chlorine calibrations.
  • ƒƒ Packaged in a small plastic case with Certificate of Analysis stating range of each standard.
