2017/024 Water level detection on Rack and FID generators
At the beginning of 2017, VICI DBS have introduced next generation hydrogen cell technology featuring 100% titanium components. Additionally, we are also using now full titanium for both electrodes (anode and cathode). The effect is that the quality of the water inside of the instrument is also much better means lower conductivity. The water detection system on some units may have an issue to measure the very low conductivity and the level of the internal tank. In this special condition, the filling pump is then not stopped and the water may overfill.
This service note describes how to modify generator when this condition presents itself so that it is possible to detect water conductivity down to 0.055µS/cm.
