HI-99163 Foodcare pH Meter for meat
HI-99163 is a portable pH and temperature meter with a special probe, dedicated to the measurement of pH in meat processing.
The HI-99163 has a waterproof and compact casing, large dual-line display, and automatic pH calibration at one or two points. The meter works at cold store operating temperatures to 0°C.
A reliable pH measurement is an important factor in the field of meat science. pH affects many quality factors including colour, grading, tenderness, texture and process characteristics. A direct measurement of muscle pH, deep in the muscle is the best way to determine the pH of the muscle.

The FC2323 probe has been specially designed for meat processing and comes with a removable stainless steel lance for meat/muscle penetration. The FC2323 is a penetration style pH electrode with a conical sensing tip and features an easy to clean, PVDF body and single junction gel filled reference with a free diffusion sleeve style reference junction.
A built-in temperature sensor allows simultaneous temperature compensated pH and temperature readings and an integral pH sensor preamplifier provides measurement impervious to noise and electrical interferences often experienced at cold temperatures with conventional pH equipment.
The FC2323 electrode with the stainless steel pointed blade attached, together with the HI-99163 pH meter are ready for portable pH measurements in intact muscle in meat processing.
