Buffer Solution EC 3.0 (25 °C) - Calibration Solution for Your EC Meter
In hydroponic plant cultivation, monitoring the electrical conductivity (EC value) of your nutrient solution is crucial. The EC value provides information about the amount of dissolved salts in the nutrient solution, thus influencing 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 requirement for accurate EC measurement is the proper calibration of the EC probe with a calibration fluid. To do this, 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 3.0 as Calibration Fluid
With an electrical conductivity of 3.0 mS/cm at 25 °C, it is suitable for calibrating EC probes to a known EC value. This enables precise measurement of the EC value of the nutrient solution and, therefore, accurate monitoring of your plant's growth process.
Precautions when using Buffer Solution EC 3.0
It is essential to note that Buffer Solution EC 3.0 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 to prevent contamination of the solution.
Due to its traceable conformity to the NIST Standard (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and its suitability for calibrating EC meters, you can ensure that the measurements are precise and reliable.
