  • Causa
    Radiometer has recently become aware of a potential issue of negative bias on sodium results if the abl90 is not on a horizontal table. when tilted by 10 degrees or more and idle for 30 -45 minutes the magnitude of the effect on sodium results is as large as 10 mm (7%) in the worst case.
  • Acción
    Radiometer is advising users to ensure that the ABL90 is placed on a horizontal platform/table. If the analyser is on a roll stand users must ensure that the support plate is aligned horizontally and locked in position. Radiometer will perform alignment of roll stands on request. A detection mechanism will be provided in an upgraded version of the analyser software to eliminate the possibility of error.
