How can I calibrate an inlab717 probe? Not necessary if you are running a titration with the probe.  You should only be concerned with the relative difference (start and stop points). If you wish to calibrate the probe to have reading, I would recommend the use of our stock buffer solutions.  They are preloaded/programmed into our titrators which makes it a lot easier to use.

What is the program for determining the acid number in oil using conductivity probe? I am unaware of an TAN number method utilizing a conductivity sensor at this time.  I am aware of IP400 which is for Base Number in Oils.  One can utilize a conductivity probe for a number of different tests in the petro industry.  From a titration perspective, we would need to know more about the customer’s application, types of samples, etc. to further assist and recommend a course of action for them.
