The T-Pull® style FermProbe® sterilisable pH electrode is designed to be used in bioprocess applications where CIP/SIP procedures are used. Built to withstand repeated steam sterilization cycles, the FermProbe quickly stabilizes after steam exposure to be back on-line in half the time of other electrodes.
This electrode design specifies that the sterilisable pH electrode be secured to the housing by a free-spinning threaded retainer nut. This allows the electrode to be installed or
removed from the housing without twisting or disconnecting the electrode cable. Additionally, the T-Pull handle eases installation and removal of the electrode from the sensor housing.
The Model F815 FermProbe has two built-in electrolyte chambers that act to protect and isolate the sensitive inner AgCl reference half-cell. This “double junction”, dual-chamber design effectively prevents the most common failure modes of pH electrodes in biopharmaceutical applications.
T-Pull® Handle FermProbe Sterilisable pH Electrodes
The T-Pull handle eases installation and removal of the electrode from the housing. The sterilisable pH electrode can be easily removed from the housing without being rotated or twisting the cable. This greatly reduces cable fatigue.
- Rugged handle design eases removal of electrode from housing. No tools required.
- Greatly reduces cable fatigue.
- Electrode retainer nut is part of the handle. Cannot be lost or misplaced.
