A conductivity meter is an instrument used to measure the electrical conductivity of a solution, it is a measure of the ability of a substance to conduct electricity. The unit is measured in siemens per meter (S/m). A substance is determined by its ion concentration. The higher the ion concentration, the higher its conductivity. Substances that have high ion concentrations, such as salts, are good conductors of electricity, and substances that have low ion concentrations, such as pure water, are bad conductors.
Most conductivity meters are based on the principle that electricity flows through a solution more easily when more ions are present. The equipment measures the conductivity of a solution as the ion concentration increases.
At Kalstein we have the right equipment for the laboratory, and the conductivity meter meets the demands of our customers, thanks to the calibration of 1-point pulser allows to use the customized calibration solution. Automatic temperature compensation corrects the conductivity measurement to the temperature reference.
Conductivity meter functions
To use a conductivity meter, a sample of the solution is first placed, then it is connected to an electricity source, a lamp is turned on, or an electrical current is generated that flows through the solution. The amount of electricity flowing through the solution is measured and used to calculate conductivity.
These kits are widely used in chemistry and biology. They are used to measure the concentration of ions in solutions, which is useful for quality control in laboratories and industry. They are also used to study the effect of ion concentration on the activity of enzymes and other proteins.
It consists of an electronic cell that contains a substance known as the electrode called the electrolyte. When an electrical current is applied to the cell, the electrolytes dissolve and release electrons, which move through the substance to the other electrode, where they recombine with the atoms.
Importance of the Conductivity meter
This device is mainly used in chemistry and industry to control the conductivity level of a substance. It can be used to measure the concentration of a solution, because the more concentrated it is, the more electricity you can drive. It can also be used to detect impurities in a solution.
Conductivity meters are widely used in laboratories and industries to measure the concentration of a wide variety of solvents, such as salts, acids and bases, they are also used to measure water purity and control the distillation process.
It has a wide variety of applications in daily life. It is used at home to measure the quality of water being used for drinking or cooking. It is also used in industry to monitor and control the water purification process. In water treatment plants, they are used to measure the ion concentration in the water being treated. This allows operators of the water treatment plant to adjust the treatment process so that the water meets water quality standards.
