How To Use

How to use a Salt Contamination Meter

elcometer-130-salt-contamination-meter-how-to-use-1 Fill the syringe with 1.6 ml of high purity water.
Note: Non-pure water (up to 2µg/cm²) can be automatically offset with the gauge.
elcometer-130-salt-contamination-meter-how-to-use-2 Eject the 1.6ml on to a clean unused sample paper, taking care to retain all the water on the paper.
elcometer-130-salt-contamination-meter-how-to-use-3 Place wetted paper on to the area under test, pressing firmly into contours and irregularities to remove any entrapped air.
Start the timer on the gauge. Whilst waiting for the sample time to elapse, additional tests can be prepared.
elcometer-130-salt-contamination-meter-how-to-use-4 After 2 minutes, remove the paper from the surface and place it on to the gold-plated electrodes.
elcometer-130-salt-contamination-meter-how-to-use-5 Close the lid, ensuring that the magnetic catch is fully engaged.
The reading will automatically be displayed and stored into memory together with paper size, temperature, date and time.
elcometer-130-salt-contamination-meter-how-to-use-6 Half size or quarter size papers can be used for testing on small surfaces.
Paper size is automatically detected by the Elcometer 130 and the reading calculated automatically.
