Titanium body - pH measurements are made by very sensitive voltage measurements that is susceptible to interference from electrical noise and humidity. This Beer pH tester has a probe with a titanium body which works as an electronic shield. As well as a shield, the metal makes the probe virtually unbreakable therefore protecting against breakage.
Flat glass - the flat glass sensor on the bottom of the probe is easy to clean and prevents any solid residues collecting on the sensor. It is suitable to use in samples up to 80°c. It is not advised to leave the sensor in hot samples for long periods.
Renewable cloth junction - It is possible to renew the junction when it gets dirty. Simply extract a few millimeters of the cloth junction to expose a fresh portion and cut off the old part.
Specifications: Range: 0.0 to 14.0 pH Resolution: 0.1 pH Accuracy: ±0.2 pH@25°c Max temperature: 80°c Calibration: Automatic, one or two-point Electrode: Built-in probe for specific application Battery type: CR2032 Li-ion Battery life: Approximately 1000 hours of continuous use
Which pH meter/electrode do I need?...
Making sure you have the right electrode and meter for your application can be confusing, not to mention correct maintenance and what to do if you are having issues. You can find links to our support guides below to help you through the process.
If you are after an electrode selector guide for some of our most popular electrodes and what applications they are recommended for you can find that below.
pH, put simply is a measure of how acidic or basic a solution is. It is a measure of H+ions present.
pH can be measured in a number of ways including test strips, indicator solution or with a pH meter and electrode. If you want to read more about the pH and the pros and cons of these methods, you can check out our introduction guide here.
How to take a pH reading and care for your electrode
pH electrodes require the correct storage and regular calibration.
If you have a pH meter or are looking to purchase and need to find out more about the care and maintenance process then you can read our guide here. We also include a troubleshoot sections with the most reported issues and possible solutions.
Selecting the right electrode and meter for your application
So you have decided you need to purchase a pH meter with electrode, but with such a wide selection out there, how do you know which is right for you?
You can read our guide on the differences between electrodes and what applications different features are good for. We also have an electrode selection guide for some of our most popular electrodes.
If you require any further assistance, or extra information you can request that here and one of our trained technical specialists will be in contact. Please provide as much detail as possible so that we can get back to you with the right information.
Have you considered your servicing requirements? Much like a car, scientific instruments may need a bit of care to keep them working reliably and at their most accurate.
The Camlab Service Department have over 60 years experience in scientific instrumentation. We have a number of highly qualified internal and field-based service engineers able to perform a variety of jobs including preventative maintenance servicing and calibration.
Camlab can offer yearly service contracts which include two main types of preventative maintenance/calibration services – the back to base service and an engineer visit to your site. These options are can be offered with differing turn around times depending on the instrument type and your requirements along with loan instruments if available.
A typical preventative maintenance service includes the following:
Inspection and testing of the unit
Dismantling, cleaning and inspection of the key parts
Correction of minor defects including adjustments if necessary
Reassembly and testing
Take post adjustment / cleaning readings
Supply of calibration certificate
Return of the item to you (back to base services)
