The purpose of a pH test is to measure acidity / basidity of a solution. This is important in
chemistry applications, among other things.
Also,many life forms live within a specified pH range, and will die if the pH value is
unsatisfactory, especially water life.


1. pH Meter

2. Beaker

3. Water Sampling Equipment


1. Distilled water

pH Test :

The water sample for the pH test should be collected away from the river bank and below the
surface. If possible, use an extension rod sampler. The sample must be measured immediately
because changes in temperature can affect the pH value. If pH must be measured later, the
sample should be placed on ice and measured as soon as possible. Procedure of using pH
reading is differentiate between the type of pH Meter.

For pH 211 Microprocessor pH Meter & HI 8424 :

1. First, the protective cap removed before measurements are taken. Reactive it with
soaking the tip in HI 70300 storage solution for a few hours to overnight.
2. pH electrode connected to the BNC connector on the top of the instrument.
3. The temperature probe connected to the RCA connector. To utilize the ATC
capability water, we combine the temperature probe with the pH electrode to take
temperature measurement.
4. ON / OFF key button is pressed to switch to meter ON. The display will shows all the
used segment for a few seconds (or as long as the button is held), follow by the
percentage indication of the remaining battery life, and then enters normal
measurement mode.

pH Measurements :

1. pH measurement are taken with simply submerge the electrode tip (at least 4 cm / 1
) and the temperature probe into the test sample.
2. pH mode is selected by pressing the RANGE key until the display changes to pH.
3. Then we stir gently and wait for a symbol of stability (hourglass) to turn off. The pH
value automatically compensated displayed for temperature.

ORP Measurements :

Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) measurements provide a qualification of the oxidizing
or reducing power of the sample tested.

1. First, the ORP electrode (optional) is connected to the BNC connector.
2. Turn the instrument ON and press the RANGE key until the display change to enter
the mV mode.
3. The ORP electrode tip ( at least 4 cm/ 1 ) is immersed into the sample tested and
allow time for the reading to stabilize (hourglass symbol turns off).
4. measurement within the 699.9 mV range will displayed with 0.1 mv resolution,
while outside this range the resolution is 1 mV.

Temperature Measurement :

1. Instrument turned on and the range key were pressed to select the temperature mode.
2. The temperature probe connected to the meter.
3. The temperature probe dipped into the sample, then the reading to stabilize (hourglass
symbol turns off) allowed and the temperature value be read.
4. Temperature measurement be displayed in C or F units (see Menu selection for
