    Does anyone out there know what a Myron L DS meter is used for sampling?

    I found it in an old box of junk, and I really don't know what it's purpose is. The meter was manufactured by the Myron L Company, which is located at 6115 Corte Del Cedro, Carlsbad, California 92009

    DS stands for dissolved solids. They are used to measure solids in a water sample (basically the amount of tiny gunk floating around in them). The more solids in a sample, the greater its ability to conduct an electrical current which is how this meter operates.

    Brand new these things run just above $200 I think. Here is the manufacturer page: http://www.myronl.com/products/DS_pDS.htm

      Your answer was helpful. I put a new 9 volt battery in it & on the scale water registered at 80, pure rubbing alcohol registered at zero, and beer registered at the top of the scale over 500. Other than that I don't know what to do with the meter

      Drink the beer, not the other stuff. Something will come to you. Or stick it on Ebay, get some money for it, buy more beer.
