Introduction

In contrast to the Quick Guide, this Reference Handbook provides a complete description of the operating principles of the DL50, DL53, DL55 and DL58 Titrators. Its layout has been kept modular to ensure future supplementation or replacement of individual sections or pages; new texts carry the date of issue in the footer on every page.

Safety notes Measures for your personal protection and for operational safety are described in Section 2 of the Quick Guide. We strongly advise you to read these. The symbols listed there also appear for texts in this Reference Handbook which require safety measures.

Keywords used

NOTICE

appears before all texts which refer to an error in the measured value acqui- sition, data storage etc.

Note

Index The index in Section 13 comprises key words from the Quick Guide and the Reference Handbook.

Software version The Reference Handbook applies to software version 2.x for all four titrators.

Note: All information concerning automation in this titrator's Reference Handbook relates to the earlier METTLER TOLEDO Sample changer ST20A. Its name continues to appear in some places. Operation of other METTLER TOLEDO sample changers via your titrator is described in the corresonding Operating Instructions.

The following pages provide an overview of the menus and commands which are available under the menu and auxiliary function keys.

Setup

In order to perform titrations, the titrator must be acquainted with the titrants and their concentrations and the sensors with a feasible unit of measurement. It must know the burette drive on which the burette is located and the input to which the sensor is connected. It must also be familiar with the settings of the attached devices such as a balance or printer in order to transfer data. In this menu you define all these chemical and mechanical resources and store them: you set up your titrator.

When you press the Setup key, the list of resources appears:

Titrants Sensors Temperature sensors Polarized sensors Auxiliary values Titration stands Peripherals Solvents (only with ST20A)

The titrants and METTLER TOLEDO sensors in most frequent use are already stored in the titrator. You can not only delete these resources and modify their parameters, but also define new ones.

Note: All information concerning automation in this titrator's Reference Handbook relates to the earlier METTLER TOLEDO Sample changer ST20A. Its name continues to appear in some places. Operation of other METTLER TOLEDO sample changers via your titrator is described in the corresonding Operating Instructions.

NOTICE

All resources needed for the METTLER methods are stored! If you delete one of these, the titrator will wait until the start of a titration of the method before displaying the error message that the resource is not installed.

Print Depending on your choice of resource, its list with the corresponding parameters will be printed out.

Modify The list of the selected resources appears.

Sensors

Setup

Unit of measure- ment

mV:

Either there is no other suitable measurement unit with calibra- tion parameters for the sensor or you need only mV. If you select the unit mV for a sensor, the calibration parameters zero point, slope and temperature are ignored by the titrator.

pH: If you select pH, next enter the calibration parameters for a pH electrode or have them entered by the titrator (see page 2-9:

 

Notes 1 and 2).

 

pM: M represents any cation. If you select pM, next enter the cali- bration parameters for a pM electrode or have them entered by the titrator (see page 2-9: Notes 1 and 2).

pX:

X represents any anion. If you select pX, next enter the calibra- tion parameters for a pX electrode or have them entered by the titrator (see page 2-9; Notes 1 and 2).

%T:

If you select %T, next enter the calibration parameters for a phototrode (measurement unit: transmission, see "Phototrode"

 

Operating Instructions.

 

A: If you select A, next enter the calibration parameters for a phototrode (measurement unit: transmission). The extinction [A = -log T] is calculated from this (see Section 8.4.1: Results).

µS/cm:

If you select µS/cm, next enter the calibration parameters of the conductivity cell.

mS/cm: If you select mS/cm, next enter the calibration parameters for the conductivity cell.

 

You can perform conductivity measurements and conductivity titrations with a conductometer fitted with an analog output.

Sensor input

Press <F4> to select: Sensor 1, 2, 3 or 4. The numbers refer to the slot of a pH option (see Section 10.4).

Setup

Sensors

Zero point

The zero point is the measured value at which the sensor indicates 0 mV voltage (measuring chain zero point).

• For the zero point of a pH electrode this is pH 0 with the unit pH.

• For the zero point of an ion selective electrode this is pM 0 with the unit pM, or pX 0 with the unit pX.

• The zero point of the phototrode is normally 0%T (100% T = 1000 mV).

• The zero point of a conductivity cell is normally 0 µS/cm or 0 mS/cm.

Slope

The slope of the sensor is the voltage change in mV per measurement unit.

• For the slope of a pH electrode this is the unit: mV/pH.

• For the slope of an ion selective electrode this is the unit: mV/pM or mV/pX.

• The slope of a phototrode is normally 10 mV/%T.

• For the slope of a conductivity cell this is the unit: mV/µS * cm -1 or mV/mS * cm -1 .

Temperature

Change the temperature if necessary: The current calibration tempera- ture is either

• entered by you at the start of a calibration method (see Section 5.1) or

• measured automatically if you have attached and defined a tempera- ture sensor (see Section 3.3.2).

Date/time You can neither enter the date nor delete it. It refers to the calibration of the sensor using the method function Calibration and is entered here automatically together with the time (see Calibration function, Section

 

3.3.13).

Notes

1. When the titrator is delivered, the defined calibration data are theoretical values of a new sensor. You must perform a calibration of your sensor if you wish to determine accurate values (see Calibration function, Section 3.3.13).

2. With a calibration of pH, pM or pX sensors, the calibration data (zero point, slope, temperature) are entered here automatically together with the date.

3. As soon as you change a sensor parameter, the date/time entry is deleted.

Sensors

Setup

NOTICE

You should never transfer the calibration data of glass electrodes which you obtain at sensor input 1 if you attach the electrode to, e.g. sensor input 2. To obtain correct values, recalibrate the electrode!

Storage procedure The sensor with the modified parameters is stored when you confirm both the parameter list and the list of the sensors with OK. The modification of a parameter is always stored when you press a Menu or Auxiliary function key (see corresponding section at the end of Section 2.1.2).

2.2.3 Add

With this command you add a sensor to the sensor list, e.g. a DG111 sensor with different calibration parameters or a completely new sensor. The following parameters always appear:

Temperature sensors

Setup

Notes

1. The defined zero point is the theoretical value of a new Pt sensor. You must perform a calibration of your sensor if you wish to determine the exact value. With a calibration the zero point is entered here automatically with the date (see Section 6.1.3: Calibrate

temperature sensors).

2. As soon as you modify a parameter of the temperature sensor, the date/time entry is deleted.

NOTICE

You should not transfer the zero point of temperature sensors which you obtain at input Temp 1 if you attach the sensors to, e.g. input Temp 2! To obtain correct values, recalibrate the sensor!

Storage procedure The Pt sensor with the modified parameters is stored when you confirm both the parameter mask and the list of the Pt sensors with OK.

When you select this menu and press <F4>, the 20 memory locations for auxiliary values appear: H1 - H20. You can use the Auxiliary value function to assign the results of a method, such as blank values, potentials or volume or amount of substance consumption to this memory. These values are then entered here automatically together with the date (see Section

3.3.15).

You yourself can also enter numeric values as an auxiliary value here and call them up under the Calculation function.

Auxiliary values

Setup

Notes

1. You can delete the data of an auxiliary value only by overwriting them yourself or have the titrator overwrite them using the Auxiliary value function.

2. The titrator does not tell you if you overwrite an auxiliary value. If you make frequent use of the auxiliary value memory, you should thus print out a list of its values from time to time (see page 2-3).

3. If you modify a parameter of the auxiliary value, the date/time entry is deleted.

Storage procedure The auxiliary value with the modified parameters is stored when you confirm both the parameter mask and the list of auxiliary values with OK. The modification of a parameter is always stored when you press a Menu or Auxiliary function key (see appropriate paragraph at the end of Section 2.1.2).

Methods

The titrator performs analyses automatically with the aid of predefined methods. When the titrator is delivered, the Method menu already holds standard methods and methods devel- oped by METTLER. You can modify these methods to suit your requirements and save them as User methods.

A complete titration method comprises sample preparation, dispensing of auxiliary solutions, stirring and wait times, the actual titration, result calculation and a report. These sub-steps are defined as Functions in the titrator and they are executed in succession in an analysis. The individual functions comprise Parameters, whose values or names you can modify.

You modify a method by changing the parameters of the preset functions.

– Select the function and press <F4>: The mask with the Parameters defined for the function appears and you can then change their values and names (see Section 3.3).

3.2.1 Storage procedure

1. Every modified method is stored when you

• confirm the corresponding parameter masks of the individual functions and

• the list of the functions with OK.

If you switch off the titrator before doing this, your changes will be discarded: all parameters are first written to the RAM (volatile memory) of the titrator and are not stored until the function list has been confirmed.

After modification of the parameters of a function, you can save the method. The following sequence is an example of the standard method "Equivalence point titration":

You modify the Title function by entering, e.g. the method identification 00001 and confirming it with OK (see also Section 3.3.1):
