What Makes a Great Industrial pH Sensor?
There are several characteristics that can make an industrial pH sensor great:
An important parameter in many industrial and laboratory applications and accurate pH measurement is critical for a wide range of processes, including water treatment, chemical manufacturing, and food processing.
The ProCon® Nexus® solid pH reference is an excellent choice for industrial applications. There is no liquid junction – therefore there is no reference poisoning. Reference poisoning causes up to 90% of the premature failures when pH sensors are used in industrial applications.
1. A pH reference, also known as a pH standard or buffer, is a solution with a known, stable pH value that is used to calibrate pH meters and other pH measurement instruments. The pH of a reference solution is carefully controlled, and it is usually standardized against a primary reference standard, such as the International pH Scale of 1957 (pHIS)
2: Accuracy: A great industrial pH sensor should be able to accurately measure pH over a wide range of values and in a variety of environments.
3: Stability: A great industrial pH sensor should be able to maintain its accuracy over time, even when exposed to harsh or fluctuating conditions.
4: Range: A great industrial pH sensor should be able to measure pH over a wide range, typically from 0 to 14.
5: Resolution: A great industrial pH sensor should be able to measure pH with a high level of precision, typically with a resolution of 0.01 pH units or better.
6: Speed: A great industrial pH sensor should be able to provide rapid and reliable readings, typically with a response time of less than a second.
7: Durability: A great industrial pH sensor should be able to withstand harsh environments and harsh chemicals, and have a long service life.
8: Compatibility: A great industrial pH sensor should be compatible with a wide range of process control and data management systems, and should have easy-to-use communication interfaces.
9: Cost: A great industrial pH sensor should offer a good balance of performance and cost, and should provide a good return on investment over its lifetime.
