Question
What is the purge function on the AT1000 and when should it be used?
Summary
AT1000 purge function and use.  
Answer
The purge function is used to fill and prime the syringes and pumps of an AT1000 titrator. The purge function should be used during the initial setup of a new AT1000 unit and after routine preventive maintenance.  Purges should be performed on every syringe and pump that is intended to be used.  Multiple purges for each component may be necessary to properly load each syringe and pump with reagent and to ensure no air bubbles exist in the syringe, pump lines and tubing lines of the AT1000.  Purges should also be performed daily before analysis is begun to ensure no air exists in the system.
