Presentation of the instrument

SILKOSTAT 9210

Operation
The 9210 can analyse up to six different samples. The sample to be
analysed circulates in a fast loop permitting rapid renewal of the sample.
Adjustment of the flow is carried out with the help of a needle valve (2). At
the beginning of the analysis, the sample is introduced into the
measurement cell (4) with the help of a solenoid valve (5).
The 1st reagent is added with the pump (9). The silica contained in the
sample now reacts with the molydate and forms the silicomolybdic
complex. The reagent time is relatively long.
Oxalic acid is then added to avoid the interference of phosphates and to
intensify the colour.
The silicomolybdic complex is reduced to a blue molybdenum complex by
means of ferrous ions. A photometric measurement is carried out at the
end of the reaction.

Installation

Unpacking

The instrument should be unpacked with care. Be careful not to mislay


the accessories during unpacking.
Caution :
Assembly should not be carried out by non-qualified personnel.
The power supply should not be connected until the installation
has been completed and checked.

Inspection
The instrument has been tested and checked at the factory before
shipping, however it is advisable to carry out a visual inspection to be
sure that it has not suffered any damage. Damaged packaging could
mean the presence of damage not immediately visible. Keep the
packaging in case of complaints. For any missing parts or accessories,
please contact your distributor.

Pre-installation
Before installing the analyser, think about the following precautions:
Place the analyser close to a sample point. The sample should be
homogenous and representative. This will allow the response time to
be reduced. The temperature of the sample should be between 5 and
50C. The pressure of the sample should be between 0.2 and 6 bar
and remain relatively stable. The solution should be free of particles.
The sample lines should be in PE/PTFE/FEP ( 4 x 6 mm).
Avoid any location with a corrosive atmosphere or subject to liquid
spills.
Chose a dry and dust-free location.
The ambient temperature of the analyser should not exceed 45C. If
the temperature is below 5C, the analyser should be installed in a
heated cabinet.

Connecting the evacuation (drain) tube


The connection of the pipe is located on the bottom of the analyser and is
carried out by the user with the help of a 12 x 17 mm pipe delivered with
the instrument. It should be at atmospheric pressure and not be looped.
Caution :
Evacuation should be free of any mechanical constraints, and free
of any counter-pressure.

Mains power connection terminals


Real time clock backup battery
RS 485 (or equivalent) communications module
Internal communications and low voltage power supply connector (for
additional electronics modules).
The electrical installation should be carried out by duly qualified
personnel. A supply voltage of 100-240 VAC is acceptable without
changing the configuration. The power supply terminals can be removed
from their housing to make connection easier.
For safety reasons, it is imperative to respect the working procedure
below :
Use a three-wire power lead (line + neutral + earth) sized for
supplying the required power.
The instrument should be connected to the mains via a circuit-breaker
or fuse whose value should be less or equal to 20 A. It should be
located in proximity and be identified.
This connection should cut-off the phase and the neutral when
electrical problems occur or when the user wishes to intervene inside
the instrument. On the other hand, the earth conductor should always
be connected.

Danger :
No intervention should be carried out on the instrument without
first switching off the power.

The connection of mains is found in the transmitter box.


To gain access :
Unscrew the 4 screws from the front panel.
Rotate the front panel.
Remove the shielding plate.
Run the cable through the transmitter gland.
Remove the terminals and screw up the wires.

possible silica content). Add the concentrated sulphuric acid whilst stirring the solution
(measured out from a test tube).
2) Still stirring, add the ferrous ammonium sulphate hexahydrate.
3) Keep stirring until completely dissolved (<5minutes).
4) Make up the volume to the gauge line (2 litres).
5) Leave to cool before transferring to the 2-litre container provided for this reagent.

Calibration solution
CONCENTRATED SOLUTION
Use of Titrisol (Merck) cartridge
Dillute one cartridge of Titrisol Merck 109947 solution into one litre of demineralised water
will give a concentration of 1000 mg/litre of Si, ie, 2139 mg/litre of SiO2.
Dillute this solution, 100 times, ie, 10 ml in one litre. This will give a concentration of
10 mg/litre of Si, ie, 21.39 mg/litre SiO2.

CALIBRATION SOLUTION
By diluting an appropriate volume of the concentrated solution (at 21.39 mg/litres) with
demineralised water, various calibration solutions with a known concentration of SiO2 may
be prepared :

Positioning the canisters


Reagent tubings are tagged as 1 to 3. They come with an analyser and
are fed through the special stoppers on the reagent canisters. One end of
these pipes is fitted with a chemically inert, PVC strainer that is used to
position the pipes in the bottom of the canisters.
Before starting analyser, it is necessary to connect each cap on its
canister :
Tubing N 1 on the reagent canister R1: Sodium molybdate and
sulphuric acid.
Tubing N 2 on the reagent canister R2: Oxalic acid reagent.
Tubing N 3 on the reagent canister R3: Sulphuric acid and ferrous
ammonium sulphate.
Screw the cap on the canisters. Then, check that the strainer is resting in
its proper position at the bottom of the canister. Put the canister on the
canister-stand to have cap towards interior as shown figure 7

Page 25

SILKOSTAT 9210

In the panel version, the canister-stand must be under the analyser


panel. In the cabinet version, it is in the back part of the cabinet.
Note :
The canisters must not be placed more than 40 cm from the
lower part of the down of the panel to have a good reagent
injection in the cell.

Appendix D : Pressure range change


The battery of the input solenoid valves works with pure water sample.
The pressure range is about 0,2 to 2 bars. If the pressure is about 0,5
to 6 bars, it is required to change the solenoid valves collar (see figure
1 item 6). So a High pressure kit contains 6 collars (0,8 diameter)
and a TORX key.

To change the solenoid valves collar, proceed as follows :


Unscrew the 2 superior screw (1) of the solenoid valves.
Move the solenoid valves coil
Unscrew the 2 screws (3) of the main part fixing (4).
Move the collar (6) of the body (4).
Change the 2 O-rings (7) of the collar (6).
Replace the joints to the new collar.
Put the collar in position on the steel block (8) in the good direction.
Place the undeceiver (10) in the indicated position in terms of the
cal output (9).
Replace the main part (4) in position ; mark NC (5) and sample
output (9) must be placed in the same side.
Re-screw the fixing screw (3).
Replace the coil (2) and tighten with help of the 2 screws (1).
