Buffer Solution EC 14.13 (25 °C) - Calibration Solution for Your EC Meter
In hydroponic plant cultivation, monitoring the electrical conductivity (EC value) of your nutrient solution plays a crucial role. The EC value indicates the amount of dissolved salts in the nutrient solution, thus affecting the growth and development of your plants. To measure the EC value of nutrient solutions, EC meters like the E50 Pro EC Meter from Aqua Master Tools are used. An essential prerequisite for accurate EC measurement is the correct calibration of the EC probe using a calibration solution. For this purpose, the EC probe is immersed in the buffer solution, and the display is set to an EC value of 3000 µS/cm. This ensures that the meter accurately displays the EC value.
Buffer Solution EC 14.13 as Calibration Fluid
With an electrical conductivity of 14.13 mS/cm at 25 °C, it is suitable for calibrating EC probes to a known EC value. This allows for precise measurement of the EC value of the nutrient solution, thus ensuring accurate monitoring of the growth process of your plants.
Precautions for Using Buffer Solution EC 14.13
It is essential to note that buffer solution EC 14.13 contains a chemical compound and can become unusable if mishandled. For example, it is advisable to seal the bottle immediately after use and store it at room temperature. After use, the bottle should be sealed immediately, and the buffer solution should not be returned to the container. This prevents contamination of the solution.
Due to its traceable conformity to the NIST standard (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and its usability for calibrating EC meters, it can be ensured that the measurements are precise and reliable.
