Foodcare pH Half-Cell Electrode with BNC Connector


The FC260B is a glass body pH half-cell electrode with a BNC connector. A reference half-cell must be used in addition to the FC260B in order to obtain pH measurements.The pH sensing portion of this electrode is a spherical bulb made of low temperature glass. This design consideration is ideal for measuring pH of various food products with a high solids content such as sauces, dairy products, and slurries.

•  Glass Body
•  Low Temperature Glass
•  pH Half-Cell

The FC260B half-cell electrode uses low temperature (LT) glass with a spherical bulb and glass body.
Low Temperature Glass Formulation
•  The glass tip uses a special LT glass formulation with a lower resistance of approximately 50 megohms compared to general purpose (GP) with a resistance of about 100 megohms.
•  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 FC260B is suitable to use with samples that measure from -5 to 100°C.

  Spherical Bulb
•  The spherical bulb is for general purpose use. Other tip shapes include conic for penetration and flat tip for surface measurements.

  Glass Body
•  The glass electrode body is suitable for a wide range of applications due to its chemical resistance.
•  The glass electrode is compatible with many non-aqueous solvents and other aggressive chemicals.
•  Glass is also resistant to many forms of radiation, such as ultraviolet radiation.

  BNC Connector
•  The FC260B uses a BNC connector.
•  This type of connector is universal in that it can be used on any pH meter that has the female BNC probe input.
•  Other type of connectors include DIN, screw type, T-type, and 3.5mm to name a few.
•  These types of connectors tend to be proprietary for a particular type of meter and are not interchangeable.
