WTW Conductivity Measurements

 

  • Laboratory Conductivity Meters
  • Portable Conductivity Meters
  • Conductivity Cells

Conductivity is a parameter used to measure electrical properties of a solution. The more salt, acid or alkali in a solution, the greater its conductivity. The unit of conductivity is S/m, often also S/cm.

Conductivity measurements are used for applications such as in the production of ultrapure water or determining the salinity of saltwater.

Conductivity is measured by making a measurement of the electrical resistance. The simplest kind of measuring cell used consists of two similar electrodes. An alternating voltage applied to one of the electrodes causes the ions in the solution to migrate towards the electrodes. The more ions in the solution, the greater the current which flows between the electrodes. The instrument measures the current and uses Ohm’s law to calculate first the conductance of the solution and then – by taking the cell data into account – the conductivity.

IDS Messzellen

With the new inoLab® Multi 9310 IDS measuring conductivity in the laboratory becomes even more reliable. The IDS technology enables ideal measurements and efficient documentation in the easiest way. The cell constant and other parameter data, such as reference temperature and temperature compensation, are inseparably and distinctively linked to the IDS conductivity cell. Wrong measurements due to inattentiveness with changing the cell are therefore excluded.

Measuring consistency

  • Error-free measurements through pre-programmed cell constants
  • Storage of measuring parameters simplifies application-oriented working
  • Proven, high-quality basic sensors to cover all measuring application areas
