    How to select a pH electrode?

    In industry, the pH meter is used more frequent as a pH measuring and analyzing instrument rather than the pH test paper and standard colour chart. The digital pH meter display screen can accurately show the pH value on real time, the error is greatly increased by one order of magnitude than that of pH test paper. Moreover, it can also realize the automatic control of pH value and pH value alarm. But due to the service life of pH electrodes, it is easy to break down, as a result, users have to pay much money in replace new pH electrodes. Next we will introduce the selection experience of pH electrode in several typical industries, so as to provide reference for users.

    What is a pH electrode?

    A pH electrode is a part of the pH meter contacting with measured substance. It's used to measure the electrode potential. Generally, there are two methods to measure the pH value of the aqueous solutions, namely Colorimetry (pH test paper and cuvette) and potentiometric method. The latter is the only way to realize continuous on-line measurement and process monitoring. Moreover, it can obtain accurate and repeatable pH value. The electrode used in the potentiometric method is called as primary battery, which is a system used to converse the chemical reaction energy into electrical energy, voltage of the primary battery is called for electrodynamic force (EMF).
