How Does the pH Scale Work?
The pH scale is a measure of the acidity or basicity of a liquid solution. It ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral (neither acidic nor basic). The pH scale is logarithmic, meaning that each unit on the scale represents a tenfold difference in acidity or basicity. For example, a solution with a pH of 4 is ten times more acidic than a solution with a pH of 5 and one hundred times more acidic than a solution with a pH of 6.
pH values less than 7 are considered acidic and are typically represented by the color red or orange on a pH scale. Examples of acidic solutions include lemon juice, vinegar, and stomach acid. pH values greater than 7 are considered basic or alkaline and are typically represented by the color green or blue on a pH scale. Examples of basic solutions include baking soda and lye.
The ProCon P14 Series pH sensors are designed for highly accurate and long-lasting performance. They feature a Nexus solid KCl reference that eliminates reference poisoning, which is a common problem with traditional liquid references. Reference poisoning occurs when the reference electrode is contaminated with impurities, leading to inaccurate pH measurements. The solid KCl reference in the P14 Series pH sensors is sealed and protected from contamination, ensuring long-lasting and accurate performance.
The ProCon D Series of pH displays and controllers are designed to work seamlessly with the P14 Series of pH sensors. They feature a color display and data logging capabilities, making it easy to read and record pH measurements. The D Series also features simplcal calibration, which allows for quick and easy calibration of the meter. This, in combination with the heavy duty rugged construction, ensures the D series of pH displays and controllers are ideal for use in harsh industrial environments. The D series of pH displays and controllers can also be programmed to set high and low alarms that alert the user when the pH is out of range.
In summary, the pH scale is a measure of the acidity or basicity of a liquid solution, with values less than 7 considered acidic and values greater than 7 considered basic. The ProCon P14 Series pH sensors and the D series of pH displays and controllers are designed to provide a highly accurate, long-lasting and easy to use pH measurement solution. The use of a Nexus solid KCl reference eliminates reference poisoning and the color display, data logging and simplcal calibration, heavy duty rugged construction, easy programming and robust design of the D series of pH displays and controllers make this system user-friendly and durable for any harsh industrial environment.
