The Atlantic for pH redox is an accurate, reliable and easy to use instrument with features that make it suitable for a large number of tasks. It can be used for both pH or redox, and the user can set the range. The Atlantic has 4 relays and a 4-20 mA output. A 4-20 mA compensation input can be added. The Atlantic incorporates 8 alarm set points and 8 timers that can be logically linked to obtain a multitude of useful functions.
pH or redox – just use the right electrode!
Atlantic can be used for either pH or redox measurements, depending on which electrode is used. The user can select the range.
Atlantic has four relay outputs and 8 set points. There will always be at least one relay output that can be used to give alarm if the pH level or the temperature goes outside the set limits. Atlantic measures both parameters and has logical linking so you only need to use one relay.
Atlantic has 4 timers that can be used for a number of purposes. For example, alarm can be delayed so that only a sustained fault results in alarm being given.
If the process temperature changes it is necessary to compensate the pH measurement accordingly. Most processes take place at a specific temperature, so the temperature is set manually – the calibration temperature is set when calibrating, the process temperature when measuring. If, however, the process temperature changes then a temperature sensor can be connected and compensation takes place automatically.
The greater the accuracy, the more time a measurement needs. The same is true for calibration. If you need fast measurements you can set Atlantic to make a fast calibration. For higher accuracy you can set Atlantic to make a slower and very thorough calibration. You can also choose how many decimals are displayed.
Calibration with Atlantic is easy. It is, of course, necessary for you to take the probe up and put it in buffer solutions, but the Atlantic tells you what to do, and makes the adjustments automatically.
You need two buffer solutions – pH 7 and pH 4, as well as clean water for rinsing the electrode.
Buffer solutions for initial calibration are provided with the Atlantic. Redox measurements are regarded as absolute and thus do not need calibration – a check solution is provided when you purchase an Atlantic with redox probe so that you can check operation.
One of Atlantic’s four relays can be used to control a valve to dose base to raise the process pH
A second relay can be used to control a valve to dose acid to lower the process pH.
Of course, with 6 set points and 4 relays there is no problem in
letting the Atlantic dose both base and acid as needed. Timers can be included to give pulsed dosing so that the process has longer time in which to react.
The Probe Cleaner uses compressed air, and has proved very effective. A timer and relay in
Atlantic can control the compressed air, whilst a second timer “freezes” the output when cleaning.
