What is pH?

Within industrial wastewater sampling, pH is a measurement used to determine how acid or alkaline a substance is. pH levels are measured on a scale from 1-14, with values below 7 indicating acidity and values above 7 indicating alkalinity. pH is a critical component of wastewater makeup as its value has a direct impact on how it is treated. Extreme pH levels are a serious environmental issue, so it’s essential that they are tested using accurate and robust equipment.

What is pH flow sampling?

Industrial wastewater sampling using pH flow sampling allows us to test the pH levels in wastewater to ensure it is correctly treated before being discharged to bodies of water.

Chemical contamination in wastewater can damage standard pH electrodes, so we recommend using a specialist pH glass combination electrode which produces a millivolt potential proportional to the pH – this is them amplified inside the pH instrument to give an instantaneous value.

pH flow sampling solutions

SIRIS offers a robust and cost-effective electrode system for the continual measurement of pH industrial wastewater sampling in open vessels such as tanks, sumps or pits –¬†manufactured up to 3000mm in length to ensure that the pH is being measured at the correct point.

The pH electrode can be easily and quickly removed for periodic calibration and buffering. Ownership is low cost and replacement pH electrode inserts are affordable and simple to install.
