  • Intuitive keypad.
  • Carry case and accessories.

CAL Check™ feature

The HI-98162 has the Hanna unique CAL Check™ feature that alerts the user to potential problems during the calibration process. This is a very important for the food processor since it is likely that the probe will be coated with the solids found in the food product being measured. This coating can easily lead to errors in pH measurement. By comparing previous calibration data to the current calibration, the meter will inform the user, with display prompts, when the probe needs to be cleaned, replaced, or if the pH buffer might be contaminated. After calibration, the overall probe condition is displayed on screen as a percentage from 0 to 100% in increments of 10%. The probe condition is affected by both the offset and slope characteristics of the pH electrode, both of which can be found in the GLP data.


Pressing the AutoHold virtual key in measurement mode, the meter will freeze and automatically log a stable reading. An “out of calibration range” warning can be enabled that will alert the user when a reading is not within the bracket of calibrated pH values.

Help menu

A contextual help menu based on the screen that is currently being viewed can be accessed at any time by the press of a dedicated button.

Log-on demand

The log-on-demand mode allows the user to record and save up to 200 samples. The logged data, along with the associated GLP data, can then be recalled or transferred to a PC with Hanna’s HI-920015 micro USB cable and HI-92000 software for traceability in record keeping for specific product batches. GLP data includes date, time, calibration buffers, offset, and slope, and is directly accessible by pressing the dedicated GLP key.

LCD screen

The high contrast, graphic LCD screen is easy to view outdoors in bright sunlight as well as in low-lit areas with the backlight. A combination of dedicated and virtual keys allows for easy, intuitive meter operation in a choice of languages.

Carry case

The compact, durable HI-720161 carrying case is thermoformed to hold all necessary components for taking a field measurement, including the meter and electrode, beakers, buffer solutions and cleaning solutions.

About the FC1013 electrode

The HI-98162 uses the FC1013 amplified pH electrode with PVDF body. This specialised electrode offers numerous features that improve pH testing for milk producers. An integrated temperature sensor allows for temperature compensated pH measurements without the need for a separate temperature probe. The contact between the bulb’s large surface area and the milk sample ensures a stable calibration and measurement.

An integral part of any pH electrode is the reference junction. The reference junction is a part of the electrode that allows for the flow of ions located in the reference cell into the sample being tested. It is vital that this flow occurs in order to complete an electrical circuit, which ultimately determines the pH value. Any clogging of the junction will prevent completion of the circuit, resulting in readings that are erratic or constantly drifting.

The FC1013 probe utilizes a secondary reference chamber with ceramic outer junction allowing aqueous silver free electrolyte to flow slowly through the porous ceramic frit providing accurate readings for aqueous samples.

The durable PVDF body of the FC1013 ensures pH measurements can be safely taken on the dairy farm or production floor. The components of the electrode are also able to withstand a wider range of temperatures to allow for accuracy during stages such as pasteurization, which requires heating to temperatures near 72°C (161°F).

FC1013 Foodcare pH and temperature electrode for milk products:

  • PVDF plastic body
  • Spherical glass tip
  • Refillable with silver free electrolyte
  • Open junction design prevents clogging
  • General purpose pH sensing glass for a wide range of temperatures
  • Built-in temperature sensor for compensated measurements

IP67 – Dust-tight and protected against the effects of temporary immersion in water up to 1m.

Recommended cleaning solution: HI-700640p Cleaning solution for milk deposits, 25 x 20ml sachets.

PC Connectivity – Opto-isolated USB with optional HI-92000 software and micro USB cable.
