                                Introduction to Ion
        Ion-selective Electrodes (ISEs) allow                                An Ion-Analyser or Ion Meter is
        us to determine the concentration of a                               required to convert the electrical
        specific ion in aqueous (& in rare                                   signal from the ISE into a relevant
        cases non-aqueous) solutions.                                        unit of concentration (ppm or

Measurements with ISEs are

temperature compensation for                                                          The measurement made is not

                                   The calibration procedure uses Ion-
                                   Standards (solutions with a precisely defined
                                   ion concentration) and specifically diluted

                                            pH Measurement
                                     with ELIT ISE/pH Ion Analyser

•   pH is a measure of the Acidity or Alkalinity of a solution.

•   Actually measures the concentration of Hydrogen Ions.
                                                                              2-Channel pH Display
                                                                               “Virtual Instrumentation”
•   Is based on a logarithmic relationship between the sensor
•    signal (mV) & the Hydrogen ion concentration (mol/L).

•   Calibration standards for pH measurements are called
•   Buffers due to their ability to keep the pH value stable when small
    amounts of acid or alkaline substance added.

•   The most common Buffers are pH 4, pH 7 & pH 10.

•   Like all Ion-selective measurements, pH measurements are
    influenced by temperature changes. Therefore, instruments have
    manual or automatic temperature compensation facilities.

•   To simplify the handling of results of pH measurements,
    the 14 decades of hydrogen ion concentration are converted
    into a linear (pH) scale from 0 to 14 using the
    Soerensen equation:
    pH value = negative Logarithm of the Hydrogen ion concentration.
    pH 0 is extremely acidic, pH14 is extremely alkaline & pH 7 is neutral.               NICO 2000 LTD.
