How to Get Optimal Data with Online Instrumentation

Sensor Maintenance

Best Practices for Sensor Maintenance - Part 2

Join YSI wastewater experts for part two of our new webinar series, How to Get Optimal Data with Online Instrumentation. In this four-part series, we’ll review best practices for maintaining online sensors and analyzers, managing data and establishing a standard operating procedure for maintenance.

Sensor maintenance can be divided into cleaning, calibration, and consumables. Of these, the most often misunderstood is calibration. Depending on the sensor, there are several types of calibrations, and often you can calibrate a sensor with multiple methods.

In part two, learn the basics of calibration and why it’s essential to ensure your sensors remain accurate. In addition, we’ll showcase live, hands-on demonstrations of maintenance procedures for YSI IQ SensorNet online sensors and share best practices for maintaining each sensor type. In this webinar, we’ll cover the ViSolid (TSS), VisoTurb (turbidity), UV-Vis (nitrate, COD, BOD, etc.), and IFL (sludge level) sensors. The webinar is interactive, so bring any questions, and feel free to ask throughout!

You’ll learn the following:

  • How and why calibrations are essential to the operation of online sensors.
  • Best practices for maintaining sensors and how to get the best data.
  • How to perform the basic operation, setup, cleaning, calibration, and consumable parts required for YSI online instrumentation (TSS, turbidity, UV-Vis, and sludge level).

Who should attend:

Water treatment engineers, operators, instrument technicians, and superintendents who want to learn more about online instrumentation and sensor applications.
