What if I am “on-site” and can’t clean the glassware, what should I do?

Although it is highly recommended that the glassware be cleaned and dried before replacing reagents, it is not always possible to achieve this, especially when away from the laboratory or workshop. In these circumstances we suggest emptying the reagents into a suitable container and re-assembling the glassware as quickly as possible. The least time that the generator electrode is exposed to atmospheric moisture then the faster the titration vessel will stabilise again after replacing reagents.
