Problem: Accurate pH measurement requires well-trained technicians to spend hours calibrating and maintaining pH electrodes, resulting in extra manpower and material costs. Complex maintenance and calibration protocols increase the possibility of human error and technical issues. The threat of contamination from broken glass electrodes often forces industrial process control users into labor-intensive and suboptimal off-line pH measurements. In addition, miscalibration and signal drift can ruin products and experiments. Unless users follow the tedious use protocols, pH electrodes are subject to breakage. Critical elements can also dry out or clog, rendering the instrument inaccurate or nonfunctional. These issues are common to virtually every pH meter in use today.
Solution: The new calibration-free pHit handheld pH scanner from Senova Systems is based on innovative technology that eliminates the frequent problems of conventional pH meters.
The pHit scanner is one option that minimizes the risk of miscalibration that can result in ruined experiments, damaged product and wasted time. The instrument is more than just calibration-free; it is almost maintenance-free and nearly indestructible. The solid-state sensor and stainless steel body increase durability, and the threat of drying and clogged elements is eliminated because the sensor is composed of carbon and can be stored dry.
For the user, products such as the pHit handheld scanner allow time and energy to be devoted to more important tasks. For the lab manager, they offer a significantly lower cost of ownership by reducing manpower requirements and by eliminating calibration buffers, storage solutions and the frequent replacement of glass electrodes. The pHit Scanner does this while producing results with accuracy and precision that are comparable to the highest priced conventional pH meters on the market today.
