  • Making Accurate pH Measurements
    Making Accurate pH Measurements

    Like the old saying goes, give a man a watch and he always knows what time it is. Give him two watches and he never knows the correct time. What do watches have to do with pH? In this article, we will tie the analogy of accurate time to pH measurement and show how to make more accurate, dependable and believable pH measurements by using three pH sensors.

  • How To Clean, Inspect, And Calibrate pH Sensors

    Once a pH sensor is installed in the process and operating, how do you determine when it is time to take the sensor out of the process and do a cleaning, or a calibration? Does one perform both a cleaning and a calibration or just a cleaning, or just a calibration? By Fred Kohlmann - Analytical Product Business Manager

  • Town Of Hillsborough Relies On Hach For Free-Ammonia Testing And Nitrification Control When Bay-area water wholesaler San Francisco Regional Water System (SFRWS) changed its residual drinking water disinfection process from chlorine to chloramine, the town of Hillsborough’s Water Quality staff faced the challenge of updating its water testing procedures to prevent nitrification and continue to meet state-mandated drinking water quality standards.
