Hints and tips
Keep the sensors clean
Ensure adequate flow (25 litres/min at study site)
Filter particles > 3.5mm via a strainer/basket

Routine Maintenance
Check basket every week
Aim to clean the basket every 2/3 weeks (some sites may
require a larger strainer/basket
Clean the sonde head and sensors every 3-6 months (site
specific)
A drop in flow can be used as an indication that cleaning of
the basket is required

Benefits
Multi-parameter
Reagent free
No sample preparation
Easy to replace sensors
Less frequent maintenance
Ideal for unmanned sites
Reduced overall costs compared to traditional reagent
using technologies
Multi-parameter single source measurements to aid
determination of inter-relationships
More single source diagnostic information to guide
preventative maintenance process improvements
