Standard Test Method for On-Line pH Measurement of Water of Low Conductivity
|Publication Date:||1 January 2014|
|ICS Code (Physicochemical methods of analysis):||71.040.50|
This test method covers the precise on-line determination of pH in water samples of conductivity lower than 100 μS/cm (see Table 1 and Table 2) over the pH range of 3 to 11 (see Fig. 1), under field operating conditions. pH measurements of water of low conductivity are problematic for conventional pH electrodes, methods, and related measurement apparatus.
This test method includes the procedures and equipment required for the continuous pH measurement of low conductivity water sample streams including the requirements for the control of sample stream pressure, flow rate, and temperature. For off-line pH measurements in low conductivity samples, refer to Test Method D5464.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
