Accuracy with Simplicity in Water Testing
Product News Oct 01, 2007
The Techpro II ™ hand-held water quality meters are the latest in a distinguished product line from the Myron L Company of Carlsbad, USA. Announcing these instruments, Camlab of Cambridge has also announced a new, exclusive distribution agreement for the full range of Myron L products in the UK.
The two models in the Techpro II range use the technology used in the Ultrameter™ range to deliver analytical performance. The TP1 measures conductivity, TDS and temperature with a specified accuracy to ±1% of reading and the TPH1 adds pH to these parameters.
The design has no vulnerable external probe, so is exceptionally rugged, and an inert, fully waterproof (IP67/NEMA 6) moulded case means that the user can take measurements by simply dipping the meter in the sample without fear of damaging either electronics or measuring electrodes. Alternatively, the sample can be poured into the measuring cell.
Calibration is simple with the Myron L range of calibration solutions and buffers. The 442 calibration solutions for TDS, by more closely representing real samples, give better correlation than can be achieved by the usual “conductivity x factor” approach, particularly at extremes of temperature.
According to Camlab, for more demanding applications, the Ultrameter II range offers more parameters – resistivity, ORP, higher specifications and more flexibility in use, not least because of the extremely resistant VALOX case.
