Recommended Cleaning Method for Pyranometers

We recommend the following method for cleaning a pyranometer dome: 

Step 1: Use a spray bottle filled with distilled water to vigorously spray the dome to wash away any particulates from the dome surface.

Step 2: If there is any hardened particulate stuck to the dome surface (e.g. bird droppings), spray with distilled water and then cover with a moist/damp paper towel for five minutes to loosen the hardened particulate, then spray vigorously again with distilled water to wash away the contaminant.

Step 3: Use a clean lens wipe to remove any remaining contaminants on the dome surface. Note: Discard the lens wipe after each use. Do not use it to clean another dome (one lens wipe per dome).

Step 4: This step is optional, but if you have a clean microfiber cloth, you can do a final polish of the dome once it has been cleaned with the lens wipe in Step 3.
