Foodcare pH Electrode for Cheese with Stainless Steel Body and Quick Connect DIN Connector - FC2423

The FC2423 is a stainless steel body pH electrode made specifially for cheese and has a quick connect DIN connector used by the HI98165 and HI99165.

The very small 5 mm (0.2″) diameter of the FC2423 is protected by an unbreakable AISI 316 stainless steel body that is 150 mm (5.9″) long; an ideal diameter for measuring the pH of cheese. The FC2423 also features an open junction design with viscolene gel electrolyte, a sensing bulb made of general purpose glass, and a conical tip shape.

This design consideration is ideal for pH measurements in cheese, dairy products, and quality control processes. The recommended operating temperature range is from 0 to 50℃.

The FC2423 specialized electrode offers numerous features that improve pH testing for cheese producers. The robust stainless steel sheath paired with the conical sensing tip allows for penetration in cheese at various points throughout the production process. An integrated temperature sensor also ensures that all pH measurements are compensated for temperature without the need for a separate temperature probe. This electrode is made for the direct measurement of cheese and has a very small diameter of only 5 mm (0.2″) to minimize the hole left behind.

Stainless Steel Body

Stainless Steel Body

To help protect from breakage Hanna Instruments made this electrode with an unbreakable stainless steel body. AISI 316 stainless steel can withstand chloride concentrations that cause corrosion in other types of alloys.

conical glass tip

Conic Glass Tip

The conical shaped tip design allows for penetration into solids, semi-solids, and emulsions for the direct measurement of pH in samples such as cheese.

Temp Sensor

Built-In Temperature Sensor

Errors in calibration and measurement are eliminated with the Automatic Temperature Compensation provided by the integrated temperature sensor.

 Open Junction Reference

Open Junction Reference

Suspended solids and proteins found in food products will clog a conventional ceramic reference junction. This clogging will impede the measurement circuit between the indicating electrode and the internal reference resulting in slower response time, erratic readings, and frequent electrode replacement. The open junction design consists of a solid gel interface (viscolene) between the sample and internal Ag/AgCl reference. This interface not only prevents silver from entering the sample, but also makes it impermeable to clogging, resulting in a fast response and stable readings.

Quick Connect DIN Connector

Quick Connect DIN Connector

The FC2423 uses a quick connect DIN connector. This type of connector can only be used with Hanna meters that accept a quick connect DIN connector. Other type of connectors include BNC, screw type, T-type, and 3.5mm to name a few.
