Product information "FC201D Series Food Industry Specific Electrodes for milk, yogurt, dairy products, semi-solid foods"

The FC201D is a PVDF body, single reference junction Smart pH electrode with low temperature glass and a built in temperature sensor. This electrode has a unique open junction design in which there a viscolene (hard gel) electrolyte layer that is free of silver chloride (AgCl) between the sample to be measured and the internal reference cell. The open junction design resists clogging and the probe’s conical tip makes it ideal for pH measurements in food products including dairy, dough, ground meats and other semi-solid food samples. This Smart electrode has a DIN connector that can only be used with the HI98140, HI98150, HI98230, and HI98240 portable meters.

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 FC201D 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 FC201D 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.

  

din connector

 

DIN Connector

The FC201D Smart pH electrode has a DIN connector that can only be used with the HI98140, HI98150, HI98230, and HI98240 portable meters.

  

digital pH electrode

 

Smart pH electrode

FC201D contains an embedded microchip that stores calibration data include date, time, buffers, offset and slope of the last calibration. The smart electrode allows the user to change to another smart pH electrode for a different sample type without having to recalibrate.
