Hanna Instruments Laboratory Division has released the HI 99161 heavy-duty thermometer with a waterproof casing that provides excellent protection from water and humidity typically present in the food industry.
The HI 99161 is supplied with the FC 202D pH electrode with built-in temperature sensor, specially designed for use in the food sector. This electrode features a rugged, easy to clean, PVDF body that tapers to a strong conic tip ideal for measurements in semisolids such as meats and cheeses. The electrode has a free diffusion sleeve type reference junction which prevents the typical problems of clogging in viscous liquids or samples with high solids content such as milk or condiments. The electrolyte used in the FC 202D electrode is free from the poisonous silver chloride, which prevents food contamination by the electrode. The HI 99161 allows automatic calibration at either NIST or standard buffer sets with auto recognition and a stability indicator. The temperature is continuously displayed on the secondary level of the large LCD. The meter runs on common 1.5 AA type batteries and the LCD provides a low battery warning signal.
The HI 99161 is supplied with a FC 202D pH electrode, pH 4 and pH 7 buffer sachets, HI 700642 cleaning solution (two 20mL sachets), batteries, a rugged carrying case and instructions.
