The HI99161 is a Foodcare portable, pH and temperature meter designed specifically for dairy applications. Monitoring pH in dairy processes is critical to ensure the quality of dairy products. The FC202D pH electrode features a rugged, easy-to-clean, PVDF body with a conical tip, making it ideal for measurements in semi-solids such as meats and cheeses. The FC202D uses a free diffusion sleeve type reference junction which prevents the typical problems of clogging in viscous liquids such as milk or condiments.
The FC202D is the ideal electrode to measure the pH of milk, yogurt, meats, cheeses, fruit, sushi, rice, jams, jellies, dough, ice cream, yogurt, beverages, and juice.
Conical Glass Tip
The conical-shaped tip design allows for penetration into solids, semi-solids, and emulsions for the direct measurement of pH in food products including meat, cheese, yogurt, and milk.
Open Junction Reference
The open junction design consists of a solid gel interface (viscolene) between the sample and internal Ag/AgCl reference. This interface not only prevents silver from entering the sample, but also makes it impermeable to clogging, resulting in a fast response and stable reading.
Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a food grade plastic that is resistant to most chemicals and solvents, including sodium hypochlorite. It has high abrasion resistance, mechanical strength and resistance to ultraviolet and nuclear radiation. PVDF is also resistant to fungal growth.
