Over the years, pH has been measured in practice to determine the acidity or basicity of samples like water. Due to the high reliability, sensitivity, and fast response of this analytical parameter, as well as the relatively low cost of the equipment needed to measure pH, it remains a widely used and crucial measurement parameter in many industries today. And yet, even though measuring pH in the laboratory is a common analysis, many things can go wrong.
METTLER TOLEDO’s ‘Guide to pH Measurement contains useful advice on how to achieve reliable results. The guide provides all the important basics that are necessary for a good understanding of pH measurement as well as important factors that influence the measurement and possible sources of errors are discussed.
The section on ‘sensor selection’ discusses choosing the right pH electrode for your application. This booklet is not limited to theoretical aspects. It also contains a substantial practical part with step-by-step tutorials and guidelines for reliable calibration and measurements, descriptions of specific applications, and more.
The last section of this guide provides you with a selection of frequently asked questions and the respective answers which assist in understanding every aspect of your workflow in order to identify and minimise potential errors in pH calibration and measurement.
