    Hanna's extended description

    Measuring the pH of food requires a specialised pH electrode. Conventional pH electrodes will work but they will have a much shorter life when used to measure food products because the reference junction becomes clogged with food particles. The response time will also be slower and results can become inaccurate. Conventional electrodes are also more difficult to keep clean as food products are often sticky or difficult to remove when dry.

    The Hanna HI-99161 food pH meter is supplied complete with a specialised food pH electrode designed to overcome these problems.

    Includes specialised food pH electrode

    The FC202D electrode supplied with the Hanna food and dairy pH meter features a white PTFE non-stick coating and a conical shaped pH measurement bulb. This makes it easy to clean and insert in semi-solid food products.

    The unique free-flow junction means that the electrode cannot be clogged up by food particles. A temperature sensor is also incorporated within the conical measurement bulb. This allows for accurate temperature compensation of the pH measurement and displays the temperature of the sample.

    Easy to use and keep clean

    The meter itself is quick and easy to use and keep clean. It is also fully water resistant - a feature that is appreciated by all our food customers.

    A large LCD screen displays continuous readout of pH and temperature. It also offers step by step guidance for pH calibration.

    The meter is compact and robust and can be fitted with an optional rubber sleeve which offers impact protection in case it is accidentally dropped. This can be easily removed for cleaning.

    Replaceable Electrode – No need to replace the whole meter when the electrode needs replacing. Spare and replacement electrodes are available for this product.
