Πληροφορίες προϊόντος

The FC2023 is the ideal electrode to measure the pH of milk, yogurt, meats, cheeses, fruit, sushi, rice, jams, jellies, dough, ice cream, yogurt, beverages, and juice.

conical glass tip

Conical Glass Tip

Made from low-temperature glass, the conical shaped tip facilitates penetration of solids, semi-solids, and emulsions to directly measure pH in food products including meat, cheese, yogurt, and milk.





open junction reference

Open Junction Reference

The open junction uses a solid gel interface (viscolene) between the sample and the internal Ag/AgCl reference, preventing silver from entering the sample, preventing clogging for a fast, stable reading.





pvdf body


Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a food grade plastic that is resistant to most chemicals and solvents, as well as abrasion, fungal growth, and ultraviolet and nuclear radiation.




On-Screen Features

Setup screen

Our extensive setup screen features a host of configurable options such as time, date, temperature units, and language for help screens and guides.





pH calibration features detailed CAL Check™ messages. Users are guided through the calibration procedure with step-by-step on-screen instructions.





Comprehensive GLP functions are directly accessible by pressing the GLP key. Calibration data, including date, time, offset, slope, and buffers used in the last calibration can be reviewed.
