HI 83224
A Complete Lab for Wastewater Analysis

The HI 83224 is a multiparameter bench photometer that has 15 methods for measurement of COD, chlorine, nitrate, nitrogen and phosphorus.

Automatic recognition of bar coded samples is an exciting feature of the HI 83224. This advanced meter scans each vial inserted into the vialholder and automatically identifies the sample method and range. This feature eliminates errors and simplifies the testing process.

The HI 83224 features a powerful interactive user support system that assists you before, during and after analysis. On-screen tutorials guide you through set-up, calibration and measurement while context sensitive help screens are available at a push of a button.

HI 83224 uses a new series of pre-dosed reagent vials for the 15 methods. Each reagent vial is bar coded with specific reagent information at our factory (with the exception of chlorine). This information is automatically scanned by the
HI 83224 to assure that the vial and method are the same.

Users have the choice of operating the HI 83224 in automatic mode, semi-automatic mode and manual mode.

HI 83224 can log and recall up to 200 different measurements. Stored data includes parameter, test results, sample number, lot number, instrument id, date and time. HI 83224 bench photometer can be connected to a PC via USB. The HI 92000 Windows® compatible software (optional) aids users in managing data.

Vial Rotation
During the measurement phase of the analysis, the state-of-the-art vial rotator spins the vial to identify the method via the bar code, than rotates while taking a number of absorbance readings. The instrument then converts the readings to concentration units.

Improved Accuracy
Using the Average function further improves acuracy. When "Average" is enabled in the Setup menu, the instrument takes 180 absorbance readings through the vial as it rotates. The HI 83224 then displays the average value in concentration units. Each individual reading represents a measurement through a new optical path. Averaging minimizes errors due to vial inconsistencies.

User Selectable Measurement Unit
The HI 83224 eliminates confusion by automaticaly converting readings to other chemical forms. Common conversions are available at the touch of a button.
