The Thermo Scientific Orion 9104APWP AquaPro double-junction, glass body pH electrode has a rugged bulb, an open junction, a silver/silver chloride (Ag/AgCl) internal reference, a polymer external reference, 0 to 14 pH range, and a waterproof Bayonet Neill-Concelman (BNC) connection with 1 m (39") cable. The open junction tip allows for faster results, while the double-junction reference system separates the sample from contact with silver ions, which prolongs electrode life and allows electrode use with samples containing silver complexing or binding agents such as tris (hydroxymethyl) aminomethane (TRIS or THAM), proteins, and sulfides. Glass body electrodes are useful in highly corrosive environments where epoxy could be corroded, or around proteins and other compounds with high surface tension. This electrode is frequently used for testing water samples.
pH range is 0 to 14 (+ or - 0.02 pH), temperature range is 0 to 60 degrees C (32 to 140 degrees F) and body dimensions are 120 mm (4.72") length x 12 mm (0.47") diameter body, with a 1 m (39") cable. Buffer and storage solutions are sold separately.
pH electrodes are used in pH meters and testers to measure the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. They are often constructed of glass, which senses hydrogen ions, and generates a millivoltage that is picked up by the filling solution and transferred to a wire that connects to the pH meter.
