HI-96714 Cyanide Portable Photometer information

Hanna's extended description

Cyanide Portable Photometer

The HI-96714 meter measures the cyanide concentration in waters. The meter uses an exclusive positive-locking system to ensure that the cuvette is in the same position every time it is placed into the measurement cell. It is designed to fit cuvettes with a larger neck making it easier to add both sample and reagents. The cuvettes are made from special optical glass to obtain best results.

Cyanide is a pollutant that originates mostly from metalurgical and galvanic industrial plants. Cyanide is poisonous to human nervous system, and it is therefore imperative to monitor and control its level in potable water. Continuous monitoring in waste effluents is required, and cyanide is removed using alkaline chlorination procedure. Due to this, European norm limit the concentration of cyanide in drinking water to 0.05 mg/L, while the EPA has established that the maximum level is not to exceed 0.2 mg/L.

Key features

  • Clear display messages make the instrument quick and easy to operate
  • The powerful Cal Check calibration function means that there is no need to return the instrument to the laboratory to check its efficiency. Samples can be checked and validation confirmed at the press of a button
  • Positive locking system ensures the cuvette is located in the same position each and every time is it placed in the measurement cell
  • Auto shut off feature turns meter off after 10 minutes of non-use to save battery life
  • Fully water resistant
  • Clear easy to use function buttons
  • Direct readout of parameter measured

Designed for precision

With the Hanna calibration check validation function, users can verify the performance of the meter quickly and easily at any time. Using Hanna NIST traceable standards, it takes just a few moments to check the accuracy of the instrument and to recalibrate as and when necessary.

All new instruments are factory calibrated at source and the electronic and optical design of the Hanna photometers minimises the need for frequent calibration. The Hanna calibration check further minimises the frequency with which instruments need to be returned to the calibration laboratory for full servicing.

PLEASE NOTE: In some cases, samples may contain other parameters which may interfere with results
Interference may be caused by: Large amounts of turbidity that will cause high readings. Oxidising (like chlorine) or reducing agents (such as sulphide or sulphur dioxide) are known to interfere with the measurement. Distillation will remove these.
Samples with high pH values should be adjusted to approximately pH 7 before testing. CAUTION: Cyanide, its solution and hydrogen cyanide liberated by acids are very poisonous.
