HI-96706C Phosphorus Portable Photometer Kit information

Hanna's extended description

About the photometer

The HI-96706 portable photometer is for the measurement of phosphorus. Hanna’s portable photometers feature an advanced optical system; the combination of a special tungsten lamp, a narrow band interference filter, and silicon photodetector ensure accurate photometric readings every time. The Hanna exclusive CAL Check™ feature utilises ready-made, NIST traceable standards to verify both meter validation and calibration. The exclusive cuvette locking system ensures that the cuvette is inserted into the measurement cell in the same position every time to maintain a consistent path length.


About phosphorus

Common in natural systems, such as lakes, oceans, and soil, phosphorus is an essential element for plant and animal growth. However, when present in large concentrations, phosphorus can cause excessive microorganism and algae growth. For hobbyists with saltwater aquaria, a high amount of phosphorus can be problematic to fish and coral. The main source of phosphorus in reef aquaria is through food that is introduced on a daily basis, but is also produced through the breakdown of plant material and excretion from fish. Replacement water can also be a source of phosphorus in aquaria, where tap water or reverse osmosis water is used to replace evaporated water and control the salt concentration in tanks. Both forms of water contain phosphorus, albeit in varying concentrations, and will have negative effects if the accumulating levels are not controlled. Phosphorus is also responsible for corrosion of piping systems if present in high enough amounts.

Key features

  • CAL Check
  • GLP - Review of the last calibration date
  • Auto-shut off – Automatic shut off after 10 minutes of non-use when the meter is in measurement mode. Prevents battery wastage when the meter is accidentally left on.
  • Battery status indicator – Indicates the amount of battery life left.
  • Built-in timer – Display of time remaining before a measurement is taken. Ensures that all readings are taken at the appropriate reaction intervals.
  • Error messages – Messages on display alerting to problems including no cap, high zero, and standard too low.
  • Cooling lamp indicator – To maintain the desirable wavelength to be used for absorbance, it is necessary to ensure components are not overheated from the heat generated by the tungsten lamp. Each photometer is designed to allow a minimal amount of time for components to cool. The cooling lamp indicator is displayed prior to a reading being taken.
  • Units of measurement – Appropriate unit of measure is displayed along with reading.
