Straight Talk On What pH Measures
The pH scale indicates the acidity or alkalinity of a liquid solution. It is the negative logarithm (base 10) of the activity of hydrogen ions (H+) in a solution. 0 to 14 on the pH scale, with 7 being neutral (neither acidic nor basic). Values below 7 are considered acidic, whilst values above 7 are considered basic.
pH measurements are essential in a variety of industries, including the manufacture of food and beverages, water treatment, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Maintaining ideal conditions for industrial operations and assuring the safety and quality of goods requires accurate pH measurements.
The pH sensors of the ProCon P14 Series are designed for accuracy and durability. The Nexus solid KCl reference reduces reference poisoning, a significant issue with conventional liquid references. When the reference electrode is polluted by contaminants, leading to erroneous pH measurements, reference poisoning develops. The solid KCl reference in pH sensors of the P14 Series is hermetically sealed and contaminant-free, assuring long-lasting and accurate performance.
The pH displays and controllers of the ProCon D Series are compatible with the pH sensors of the P14 Series. They have a colour display and data logging features, making pH measurements simple to read and record. The D Series also includes simple calibration, which enables quick and easy metre calibration. This, along with the D series pH monitors and controllers’ heavy-duty, durable build, makes them perfect for usage in tough industrial situations.
In conclusion, the ProCon P14 Series pH sensors and the D series of pH displays and controllers are intended to provide a precise, durable, and user-friendly pH measurement solution. The use of a solid KCl reference eliminates reference poisoning, and the colour display, data logging and simple calibration, heavy duty rugged construction, simple programming, and robust design of the D series of pH displays and controllers make this system user-friendly and resilient in any harsh industrial environment.
