Med-Lab has received several queries recently regarding best practise of handling the 1152 Hand-held Conductivity Meter. For this reason, we have released the following text and advise all of our customers using this instrument to be aware of this and to follow it where possible.
Day to day handling of the 1152 instrument with fuel may cause the buttons and / or display to fail if liquid is introduced to these areas over time. If this occurs, the display and / or buttons can fail prematurely requiring repair / calibration of the instrument which is not covered by the manufacturer warranty. As a ‘Best Practise’ Med-Lab advise reducing fuel contamination to the instrument wherever possible to extend functional life. Good housekeeping, good practise reducing spillage and wiping hands where possible before handling the instrument are all suggested to achieve this.
