The Oakton 35462-50 EcoTestr Salt is a handheld, waterproof and dustproof pocket meter that measures salinity and floats, if dropped in liquid. A portable pocket meter is commonly used to measure the salinity of substance in aquaculture, aquariums, fish ponds, food processing, swimming pools, and in environmental treatment. This meter has ATC for accurate readings in fluctuating temperatures, and push-button calibration for a wide range of results. It features a transparent, protective cap to reduce contamination and protect the sensor. The cap keeps the sensor moist when stored upright, and can be used as a container for sensor-conditioning, or on-site calibration. The meter’s waterproof and dustproof housing has IP67-rating for protection against solid objects or liquids. Its stainless steel sensor tip is both durable and chemical-resistant. The meter has a large, upright, single-line LCD screen for ease of viewing, a hold function which freezes readings for recording, and an auto shut-off to extend the life of the batteries. It has a click-lock battery cover for battery access to replace batteries without tools.
The 35462-50 pocket meter comes with an integral stainless steel sensor, has ATC from 0 to 50 degrees C (32 to 122 degrees F), and operating temperature of 0 to 50 degrees C (32 to 122 degrees F). Salinity range is 0 to 10.00 ppt, resolution 0.1 ppt, accuracy + or - 1% full-scale (+ or - 2% above 5 ppt). Its dimensions are 1.25 (l) x 1.5 (w) x 6.5 (h) inches (3.2 x 3.8 x 16.8 cm) and it weighs 3.25 ounces. The testr works with four 1.5-V alkaline batteries (not included) for up to 500 hours of continuous use (Eveready A76 or LR44 replacements).
Salinity is the amount of alkali metal salts or magnesium salts in a substance. Salt meters are commonly used by researchers, manufacturers, and hobbyists in aquaculture, agriculture, hydroponics and water-testing, and for scientific applications.
