Product information "PVDF Body Foodcare pH Electrode for Dairy Products and Semi-Solid Foods with Screw Connector"

The FC200S is a PVDF body, gel filled, single junction pH electrode with a screw cap connector. This probe features an open junction design, a sensing bulb made of low temperature glass, and a food grade plastic body.

This design consideration is ideal for pH measurements in the food industry including dairy, dough, ground meats, and other semi-solid food samples. The recommended operating temperature range is from 0 to 50°C.

  • PVDF Body
  • Open Junction

 

Details

 

Hanna Instruments offers a wide variety of pH electrodes that are designed for many different applications. The type of glass used for sensing pH, bulb shape, body material, type of junction, type of reference and electrolyte used are just some of the design considerations.

 

The FC200S uses low temperature (LT) glass, conical bulb, food grade PVDF body, and open junction with viscolene gel electrolyte.

 

   

 

low temperature glass

 

   Low Temperature Glass Formulation

 

The glass tip uses a special LT glass formulation with a lower resistance of approximately 50 megaohms compared to general purpose (GP) with a resistance of about 100 megaohms. This is beneficial since many food products are stored at low temperatures. As the temperature of the glass decreases in the sample, the resistance of the LT glass will increase approaching that of GP glass at ambient temperatures. If using GP glass, the resistance would increase above the optimum resistance for the high impedance input of a pH meter.The FC200S is suitable to use with samples that measure from 0 to 50°C.   

 

   

 

conical tip

 

   

 

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.

 

   

 

pvdf body

 

 

 

PVDF Body

 

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.

 

   

 

open junction reference

 

 

Open Junction Reference

 

Suspended solids and proteins found in food products will clog a conventional ceramic reference junction. This clogging will impede the measurement circuit between the indicating electrode and the internal reference resulting in slower response time, erratic readings, and frequent electrode replacement. 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 readings.

 

 

Screw Cap Connector

 

The FC200S uses a screw cap connector. uses a screw connector. Screw connectors attach directly to the meter and can also be made interchangeable with other meters by using a Hanna BNC extension cables.
