Do You Really Want Manual Calibration?

Many of us who have been around the water industry for a while can recall the days of manually calibrating online analyzers.   Their arsenal would include:  a cart of tools, calibration standard, “calibrators”, and “zero sources”.  These tools would only be used a few times a year, if that.  Although the calibration of water analysis instruments should be performed on a monthly basis, most operators would admit to only calibrating them once or twice a year.
