Question
Are there step by step written instructions for doing a calibration on the TSS Portable?
Summary
TSS portable calibration.
Answer

These are the steps for calibrating the TSS Portable Hand-held Turbidity, Suspended Solids, and Sludge Level System Product # LXV322.99.00002. There is also a video with instructions available for further help with the TSS Portable Suspended Solids Calibration.

1. Starting from the menu. First highlight calibration and press enter.

Menu
>Calibration
  Time/Date
  Display

2. Next in the calibration menu, highlight Curve XXX  and press enter to select the curve that will be calibrated.

Calibration
>Curve C-DS2
  Memory
  Point 1

3. Select which Curve from the list that is going to be calibrated. Note, this should be one of the C-DSx curves, in this example the curve is being changed from C-DS2 to C-DS1.

Curve
^ C-DS1
  C-DS2
v C-DS3

4. It will then return to the Calibration menu. Highlight Memory and press enter.

Calibration
  Curve C-DS1
>Memory
  Point1

5. After Memory is selected submerge the probe in the homogenous Sample that will be the Point 1 for the calibration.

6. Once the probe is submerged in the sample that will be Point 1 of this calibration curve, select point 1 from the Memory menu by higlighting and pressing enter.

Memory
>Point 1
  Point 2
  Point 3

7. You will be told to wait while the reading is taking place.

  Wait
Memory

8. Once the reading is taken it will go back to the calibration menu. Point 1 will now have an asterisk (*) next to it indicating that the meter has a memory of that point, but doesn't have the TSS concentration for that point yet. Then have a gravimetric analysis done on this sample to get the TSS for it in mg/L.

Calibration
  Curve C-DS1
  Memory
>*Point 1

9. Select Point 1 and enter the results of the graimetric analysis of the sample that was used for Point 1. For this example, 50 mg/L will be used.

Point 1
  50 mg/L

10. Once the value is entered press Enter. This will go back to the main screen which will display "Points saved" scrolling across the top. If only a single point calibration is being performed then the calibration is now complete.

11. For additional points repeat steps 4-10 for Point 2, then Point 3, ect.
