What is pH?
pH is a scale used to specify the acidity or alkalinity of aqueous solutions. The pH value correlates with the concentration (or to be more precise: with activity) of hydrogen ions. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are acidic (high concentration of hydrogen ions) and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic (low concentration of hydrogen ions).
What equipment do I need for a pH measurement?
There are three essential components for pH measurement:
- A pH meter capable of measuring a potential in the range of -500 to 500 mV that is transformed into a pH value. For the sake of temperature compensation, an input for a temperature sensor is needed or at least the possibility to enter the temperature manually.
- A pH sensor consisting of two half cells, a measurement cell and a reference cell, which are normally combined in one shaft (combined pH sensor). The sensor should be selected carefully so as to match your needs. Alternatively, a built-in temperature sensor might be needed (3-in-1 pH sensor). Sensors without a fixed cable will need the appropriate one to connect to the meter.
- A minimum of two pH calibration buffers is vital. The pH values of the buffers should not differ in less than 2 and more than 3 pH units from each other and cover the whole pH measuring range of your samples. E.g.: for samples in the range of pH 5 to 9, three buffers pH 4.01, pH 7.00 and pH 9.21 (or pH 10) are needed.
Optional accessories are
- Electrode arm (included with most bench meter kits)
- Magnetic stirrer
- Refilling and maintenance solutions
- Dedicated software
- Portable equipment such as a carrying case or rubber holster
- Sample changer
Should I have a dedicated or multi-parameter instrument?
This depends on your application. Dedicated single channel meters can be used to measure one parameter like pH, ORP, ion concentration, conductivity or dissolved oxygen). Multi-parameter instruments allow you to measure more than one parameter at the same workplace.
