Plastic-bodied K-series reference cell

Part Number: 6004-0005

Product Features

  • Robust and easy to use
  • Suitable for use with BathyCorrometers, UCP1A and UCP1B probes
  • Environmentally friendly vs calomel electrodes
  • Inert body casing: PVC
  • Long service life

The screw-in K-Series Reference Cell is an ideal environmentally friendly replacement for the old-style calomel reference cells.

The reference cell is used to ascertain the potential of the silver/silver chloride/seawater (Ag/AgCl/seawater) half-cell in a BathyCorrometer®, UCP1A or UCP1B underwater probe.It has been specifically designed to be used on the BathyCorrometer. This is achieved by removing the stainless steel probe tip and screwing on the K-series reference cell. The potential of the internal Ag/AgCl/seawater reference cell can then be checked. 

To be confident in the results, ideally a set of three, different, K series cells should be used. The cells can also be used for checking the UCP1A or UCP1B probes but an adaptor lead (H16) and a high impedance voltmeter (greater than 10MOhm) would be required. The electrode is housed in a high-resistance PVC body. The reference electrode is supplied with full operating instructions and will give a service life of up to 1 year if correctly maintained and used.
