Camlab Pool Testing Kits

Water testing is important when maintaining a pool or hot tub to make sure the water is safe to be in. The water can end up having too many or too little chemicals in it which can affect the pools hygiene and bacteria levels. The most frequently tested parameters are pH, chlorine (free and total), bromine, alkalinity and calcium hardness. Camlab have created water testing kits for testing thes...

pH Importance in Biogas Production

Why is the pH Important? The correct mix of feedstock such as slurry, food waste and processed plant material is important to ensure efficient biomethane production. This combined feedstock (media) is broken down by microorganisms in a series of steps, resulting in the production of methane (methanogenesis). The pH of the media is an important consideration during this process. Values...

Can I use pH test strips to measure the pH of edible oils?

pH in simple terms, is a measure of how acidic or alkaline something is. It is measured on a logarithmic scale of 0-14, where 0-6 is considered acid, 7 is neutral and 8-14 is alkaline. Using test strips and papers is the simplest way to quickly measure pH. Although basic, they are ideal for many applications and are also suitable to use as an indication prior to more accurate pH testing (i.e us...

Measuring the conductivity of soil

Conductivity (also called electrical conductivity or EC for short) is a measure of a substances ability to conduct an electrical current and this can be measured using a conductivity meter. In the farming and the agriculture industry, conductivity can be used as an indicator of overall soil nutrient levels. [caption id="attachment_15504" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Soil conductivity c...

FOS/TAC Titration

The FOS/TAC ratio is a commonly used indicator for assessing the fermentation process within biogas reactors, where FOS is a measure of the volatile organic acids (measured in mg CH3COOH/l) and is TAC is a measure of the total inorganic carbon i.e. the alkaline buffer capacity of the system (measured in mg CaCO3/l). In simple terms, this ratio looks at acid vs alkaline in the system which helps...

Measuring the pH of bread dough

In the food industry, pH monitoring may be required during the production or pre-production process for a number of reasons including for microbe monitoring and taste purposes. In baking and bread-making there are a number of reasons why you would wish to know the pH - having a low pH in sourdough inhibits growth of pathogenic bacteria and in bread dough pH control agents (preservatives) may be...
