How to clean the carbonate deposits on the dripper?


In order to prolong the service life of the dripper and reduce the formation of carbonate deposits, the following measures can be taken:

Before using the drip tube or dripper, check that the dripper is clean and clean if necessary.
When measuring samples containing carbonate, the sample can be filtered first to remove most of the precipitate.
After the experiment, clean the dripper immediately to avoid the sediment drying on the surface of the dripper.




1. Will washing the dripper damage the dripper?

   NO. Proper use of the cleaning method will not cause damage to the dripper, on the contrary, it will prolong the service life of the dripper.


2. How often is the cleaning frequency?

The frequency of cleaning depends on the usage of the experiment and the nature of the sample. It is generally recommended to clean after the end of the experiment every day.


3. How do I know that the dripper has been thoroughly cleaned?

You can tell if the drip tip is clean by observing whether there is any residue or foreign matter on the surface of the drip tip.


4. Can the cleaning solution be reused?

In general, the cleaning solution is for one-time use. In order to ensure the cleaning effect, fresh cleaning solution should be used every time.


5. How much does carbonate precipitation affect the experimental results?

Carbonate precipitation can lead to poor flow of droplets, affecting accurate titration of liquids, which may affect the accuracy of experimental results.


Cleaning the dripper is an important step to ensure the accuracy and repeatability of the experiment. Choosing an appropriate cleaning method and cleaning it regularly can prolong the service life of the dripper and ensure the accuracy of the experimental results. At the same time, we should also pay attention to the safety measures during the experiment to ensure the safety of operation.
