The test is conducted to establish whether a liquid will allow electrical charge to migrate through it or not and therefore its ability to accumulate and retain charge. The liquid to be tested is slowly charged into a cylindrical, measuring test cell comprising of an inner pole and a concentric outer electrode. A voltage is applied and current is measured from one electrode to the other. Using current value measured, a liquid conductivity is calculated using the test cells constant, determined from its geometry.
