# How calibration Pot works?

## How calibration Pot works?

Calibration Pots provide an accurate pump calibration of higher pump flow rates. The totally enclosed construction assures maximum safety. The gauge is installed between the suction side of the chemical pump and the tank.

## What is calibration Pot?

A calibration pot is a simple and economical way of measuring a specific volume. It is placed vertically on the suction pipe (as close as possible to the pump) is used to measure and control the dosing pump flow rate in line with its installation conditions and the properties of the fluid being dosed.

How do you calibrate a dosing pump?

Calibration Procedure

1. Calculate the capacity of the pump at the speed and stroke rate at which the test will be run.
2. Fill the calibration cylinder with the product that the pump is feeding.
3. Record the starting level of the calibration cylinder.
4. Run the pump for the desired amount of time, generally 0.5 – 1.0 minute.

### How does a calibration column work?

Calibration Columns are installed on the suction side of the metering pump and are isolated with two valves installed with the cylinder. The top of the cylinder is vented back to the supply tank or drain. The calibration cylinder is filled to the top mark then the valve from the tank is closed.

### What should I be dosing my reef tank with?

Regular dosing of iodine is recommended. However, overdosing can be toxic, so it is absolutely critical to test before adding any amount to your reef tank.

What is used for calibration of cylinder?

Explanation: For calibration of cylinder, weight of the sand required to fill the pouring cone of cylinder is needed. Uniformly graded, dry, clean sand passing a 600micron sieve and retained on 300micron IS sieve is used.

## How do you graph a calibration plot?

To construct the calibration curve, use a computer program to plot the data as signal vs. concentration. Use the standard deviation of the repeated measurements for each data point to make error bars. Remove portions of the curve that are non-linear, then perform a linear regression and determine the best-fit line.

## How do you set up a automatic dosing pump?

How to Set Up a Dosing Pump

1. STEP 1: Choose Your Pump.
2. STEP #2: Get the Equipment.
3. STEP #3: Mount the Pump and Attach Tubing.
4. STEP #4: Set the Dosing Schedule.
5. STEP #5: Test and Monitor Water Parameters.

Can calcium be too high in a reef tank?

Calcium requirements tend to increase in most reef aquariums as they grow and mature. If calcium levels get too high (over 500), there is a tendency for alkalinity to drop, affecting the buffering capacity of your aquarium water. Without adequate buffering, pH levels become susceptible to fluctuations.

### Where does the calibration pot need to be?

Calibration pot is usually installed on suction site of dosing pump. It should be equipped with isolated valves to enable calibration directly from calibration pot and after calibration switch over to normal flow direction from chemical feed tank.

### How is a Prochem used in a calibration pot?

Calibration pots. Prochem Calipots are used to confirm correct dosing rates from system dosing pumps. The Calipot is normally filled to a set level. The dosing pumps are then fed from it for a pre-set period – usually one minute or more.

How is flow rate checked in a calibration pot?

The flow rate is checked by closing the valve between the tank and gauge and observing the liquid level change in the calibrated scale for one minute (other test times available upon request). The Calibration Pot is often the preferred option for offshore installations due to the robust design.

## Why are calibration pots used in offshore installations?

The Calibration Pot is often the preferred option for offshore installations due to the robust design. The totally enclosed construction ensures maximum safety. Provide a means for accurately checking the feed rates of a chemical metering pump. Individually hand calibrated to assure maximum accuracy.
