This mini titrator uses a optimized preprogrammed method and a specialized wine pH electrode to give a highly accurate determination of pH and titratable acidity.
- Complete kit for titratable acidity in wine.
- Dynamic dosing makes testing both faster and more accurate.
- Great for small & medium wineries and advanced hobbyists.
Application-Specific pH Electrode
The HI84502U-01 is supplied with the HI1048B glass body pH electrode featuring CPS™technology to prevent the clogging of the reference junction. Conventional electrodes may clog quickly in biological samples that have a high solids content such as wine must. By design, the HI1048B pH electrode utilizes a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) sleeve junction which controls a steady, predictable flow of electrolyte solution, keeping the junction open. The hydrophobic properties of PTFE repel wetness and coatings.
Piston Driven Dosing Pump
The heart of the HI84502U-01 is the piston driven burette pump. This type of dosing system uses a motor in which each dose is very precisely controlled and the volume dispensed is accurately determined. The piston driven burette is controlled dynamically so that the volume of titrant being dosed is automatically adjusted based on a voltage response of the previous dose. This type of dosing speeds up the wine titration process by allowing for more titrant to be dosed at the start of the titration and then very small doses as the endpoint is reached.
