The Milwaukee Instruments pH600 is a compact pH tester with a narrow probe for use in small samples or test tubes, and has manual two-point calibration, a single-line LCD screen, a replaceable electrode, and a low power demand. A pH meter is commonly used to measure the pH of substance such as water, food, beer, or wine in laboratory, industrial, and food applications. The single-line LCD screen of this meter shows the current measurement. The meter has manual temperature compensation and manual one-point calibration through a trimmer on the top. Three 1.5V button batteries provide approximately 700 hours of use. The meter also comes with a calibration screwdriver and instructions.
|pH range||0.0 to 14.0|
|pH accuracy||+ or - .1|
|Operating temperature||0 to 50 degrees C (32 to 122 degrees F)|
|Operating relative humidity||95 percent|
|Dimensions||150 x 30 x 24mm/5.9 x 1.2 x 0.9 inches (H x W x D)|
H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
A pH meter, also called a sensor or tester, is a device used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. A pH meter has either a portable or a benchtop body. Many portable meters are handheld devices. Some testers have an internal sensor, and may have a tip and body that fit inside of a container for measurement. A meter is commonly used in many different environments from laboratories to field research and manufacturing facilities. Researchers, manufacturers, and hobbyists use a pH meter in aquaculture, agricultural, wine-making, and water-testing, and for scientific applications. Some pH meters may measure additional parameters such as dissolved oxygen (DO), conductivity (also called electro-conductivity or EC), temperature, total dissolved solids (TDS), salinity, resistivity, or oxygen reduction potential (ORP)/mV.
