IC Controls - Model 647 - pH Sensor
This sensor is designed to survive in sulfides, cyanides and ammonia environments often found in Mines, Concentrators and Refineries. It is bigger and more rugged (shown in the left and right) than a conventional pH sensors (shown in the middle) and lasts 3 to 5 times longer. The patented 'solid polymer' pH reference design is used to give fast response and long life even with constantly fluctuating temperature, pressure, oily coatings and poisoning ions. This submersible sensor is compatible with many existing installations and analyzers. The sensor body is CPVC (or optional PVDF) with the sensing electrode encapsulated with a PPS liner for prolonged reliability. For submersion, it mounts on a 3/4' FNPT thread in the end of a support pipe or it can be suspended from it's lead.
- Signficant savings are realized from 'no pH error' and sustainable recoveries at lower cost.
- This sensor is not affected by hydrogen sulfide, cyanide, ammonia, nictric acid, strongs acids or high chlorides.
- The 'soild junction' stops ion flow and it's resulting drift. The reference can not be poisoned.
- It is not affected by flotation chemical filming agents that clog or plug proous junctions.
- The sensor is big and rugged to survive shocks, sharp rock abrasions, being dropped in a chemical cleaner bucket and possibly even being run over by a truck.
- 3/4' NPT threads allow the sensor to rotate so the body flutes deflect abrasive particles.
- No maintenance pH reference.
- Reduced environmental waste due to the operating life of the sensor typically lasting 3 - 5 times longer than conventional pH sensors.
- Complete encapsulated design allows total submersion.
- Compatible with all pH analyzer brands. Some brands may require an interface component.
- Safe and easy installation
- Reliable source of supply
- Reasonable prices
- Consistent quality
