The Hanna Instruments HI 99163N is a portable, waterproof, hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) compliant pH and temperature meter designed for use in the meat processing industry, is supplied with the FC 232D combination pH and temperature probe and the FC 099 conical tip with stainless penetration blade. The FC 232 D probe features a cleanable polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) body, and has a diffusion prevention sleeve to protect it from clogging in viscous liquids, with a viscolene electrolyte that is designed to be safe for food applications. The probe has a DIN connector and 1 m (3.3’) cable for reaching test sites.
The HI 99163N meter features a large multi-level LCD screen, and automatic temperature compensation (ATC) from 0 to 60 degrees C (32 to 140 degrees F). A battery percent displays at startup, an auto off function after 8 minutes, and the battery error protection system (BEPS) helps to prevent inaccurate readings. The meter comes with (3) AAA 1.5 V batteries that provide approximately 1200 hours of continuous use. Calibration is automatic at one or two points, and starter calibration and cleaning sachets are included.
pH range is -2.00 to 16.00 (+ or - 0.02pH) with a resolution of 0.01 pH. Temperature range is - 5.0 to 105.0 degrees C (23.0 to 221.0 degrees F) + or - 0.5 degrees C (up to 60 degrees C), + or - 1 degree C (outside); + or - 1.0 degree F (up to 140 degrees F), + or - 2 degrees F (outside), with a resolution of 0.1 degrees C or F. Dimensions are 152 x 58 x 30 mm (6.0 x 2.3 x 1.2”), with weight 205g (7.2 oz.).
pH testers measure the acidity or alkalinity of a substance and are commonly used by researchers, manufacturers, and hobbyists.
Hanna Instruments manufactures a wide variety of analytical instrumentation, including pH meters, multi-parameter meters, electrodes, chemical reagents and buffer solutions. Founded in 1978, Hanna is headquartered in Woonsocket, RI, with subsidiaries located in 32 countries. Hanna Instruments holds many firsts in the field of analytical instrumentation, including the world’s first pH electrode with a built in temperature sensor, electronic pocket-sized pH tester, and replaceable electrode pH pocket tester. To assure the quality of its products, Hanna is a vertically integrated manufacturer and does not subcontract any part of its manufacturing.
