Foodcare pH/Temperature Electrode for Milk (use w/ HI98162)$208.00
FC1013 is a specialized electrode that offers numerous features that improve pH testing for milk producers design to be sued with the HI98162 Foodcare Meter. An integrated temperature sensor allows for temperature compensated pH measurements without the need for a separate temperature probe. The contact between the bulb's large surface area and the milk sample ensures a stable calibration and measurement.
- Durable PVDF plastic body ensures pH measurements can be safely taken on the dairy farm or production floor.
- Open junction design that resist clogging from milk-based solids.
- Designed for measuring pH in milk with the HI98162 Foodcare Meter.

The HI98162 uses the FC1013 amplified pH electrode with PVDF body. This specialized electrode offers numerous features that improve pH testing for milk producers. An integrated temperature sensor allows for temperature compensated pH measurements without the need for a separate temperature probe. The contact between the bulb’s large surface area and the milk sample ensures a stable calibration and measurement.
An integral part of any pH electrode is the reference junction. The reference junction is a part of the electrode that allows for the flow of ions located in the reference cell into the sample being tested. It is vital that this flow occurs in order to complete an electrical circuit, which ultimately determines the pH value. Any clogging of the junction will prevent completion of the circuit, resulting in readings that are erratic or constantly drifting.
The FC1013 probe utilizes a secondary reference chamber with ceramic outer junction allowing aqueous silver free electrolyte to flow slowly through the porous ceramic frit providing accurate readings for aqueous samples.
The durable PVDF body of the FC1013 ensures pH measurements can be safely taken on the dairy farm or production floor. The components of the electrode are also able to withstand a wider range of temperatures to allow for accuracy during stages such as pasteurization, which requires heating to temperatures near 72°C (161°F).
The food grade, PVDF body of the FC1013 is chemically resistant and durable for accurate, portable measurements.
Spheric Glass Tip
A large surface area provides optimal contact between the sensing bulb and aqueous milk sample.
Built-In Temperature Sensor
Errors in calibration and measurement are eliminated with the Automatic Temperature Compensation provided by the integrated temperature sensor.
