The maintenance free MecoTrode traditional sensor provides a standard mV output compatible with most transmitters and controllers. The Mecotrode is designed for processes in the chemical industry with extreme pH values. The H glass type membrane glass provides a low alkaline error and stable measurement even at high temperatures.
Three high-performance ceramic diaphragms reduce the effect of flow potential in pipe mounting or slurry media.

How much torque is needed to install a sensor with PG13.5 threads?
What is viscous electrolyte?Viscous electrolyte helps slow the ingress of contaminants that could poison the sensor. These sensors offer a good compromise between long life and good value. They are well suited for applications found in water treatment, swimming pools, fish farming, algae cultivation and many other industries.
What is the expected lifetime of my pH sensor?Expected pH sensor lifetime is dependent on the application. Exposure to strong chemicals, elevated temperature, fluctuating pressure, and solid build-up can all impact the sensor life. As the sensor ages, a sluggish response may become more apparent, and will require more frequent calibrations to compensate for this change. The overall health of the Arc pH sensors can be seen using the quality indicator in ArcAir software. Click to learn more about sensor lifespan and expiration in the Knowledgebase article.
What solution should I store my pH or ORP probe in?Hamilton recommends storing pH and ORP probes wet in either Hamilton Storage Solution (Ref 238931) or in 3M KCl solution. Click to see the pH/ ORP Sensor Storage and Regeneration Knowledgebase for more information.
