Many tables for solvents are labeled resistivity, but are in units of megohms (resistance).
If resistance increases to above one megohm and remains steady at high impedance, you've got a short.
Resistance values range from 500 ohms to 1 Megohm (148) and 100 ohm to 2 Megohm (149), with standard linearity of [+ or -] 5 percent.
The different grades of mixed bed resins and the respective water quality produced include: nuclear grade > 1.5 megohm, semiconductor grade > 18 megohm and ultralow TOC < 1 ppb.
0 megohm resistance, 95% perfect spherical beads, service flow rate 2.
According to our system's gauge, we're running at |a resistivity of~ 18.3 megohm."
calibration and certification mark megohm meter fluke 1550 model (according to technical bases attached)
The system was stabilized at 18.2 megohm and a 200-mL sample was collected for bacterial testing and a 5-mL sample for endotoxin testing.
"Vitrek offers two series of electrical safety testers--95x and V7x (Figure 1)--that each perform hipot tests as well as insulation-resistance (megohms), ground-resistance (milliohms), and ground-bond tests," he said.
* SDM3045X DMM will make measurements of True-RMS AG voltage and AC current, resistance to 10 megohms, capacitance to 10,000 microfarads, continuity and diode tests, frequency and period measurements, and temperature, with support for thermocouple and RTD sensors
The reformulated 100 percent solids epoxy system fulfills the three criteria relating to flooring as outlined in ANSI/ ESD S20.20, which requires a system resistance of a person through the floor and to ground of less than 35 megohms. This makes it ideal for locations where electrostatic discharge is a serious cause for concern, such as in laboratories that need to protect sensitive electrical equipment or in areas where flammable materials are handled and in which a fire safe floor is required to prevent static becoming an ignition source.
