Meat pH Tester

with specialized probe

The HI981036 Foodcare Meat pH tester is an application specific
designed pH tester for the measurement of pH during the meat
processing process.This meter offers many advanced features including
a pH electrode designed specifically for the measurement of meat.

• pH electrode with replaceable bridge electrolyte
The pH electrode has an outer junction sleeve that can be
removed and cleaned. Once cleaned a small amount of supplied
gel electrolyte is added and the junction is refreshed improving
the pH measurement and extending the life of the meter.
• Low temperature (LT) glass
The pH glass tip uses a special low temperature (LT) glass
formulation with a lower resistance of approximately
50 Megaohms compared to general purpose (GP) with a
resistance of about 100 Megaohms. This is beneficial when
measuring food products at lower temperatures in order
to have the ideal resistance for the measuring circuit.
• Conical tip
Allows for easy penetration into solids and semisolids, which is
needed when wanting to take a direct measurement in meat

• PVDF body
Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) is a food grade plastic
that is resistant to most chemicals and solvents,
including sodium hypochlorite. It has high abrasion
resistance, mechanical strength, and resistance to
ultraviolet. PVDF is also resistant to fungal growth.
• Large LCD
An enhanced LCD displays the measurement reading, stability
indicator, low battery indicator, and calibration tags.
• Automatic calibration
The Foodcare Meat pH Tester is calibrated automatically
to one or two points. The calibration buffers are
automatically recognized and after calibration the
buffer values used are shown on the display.
• Stability indicator
An hourglass indicator is displayed on the LCD until a
stable reading is obtained. Once a reading stabilizes,
the indicator disappears and a reading can be taken.
• Automatic shut-off
The meter can be set to automatically turn off after 8 minutes
or 60 minutes to conserve battery life in the event that the
meter is left on. The auto-off feature can also be disabled.
• Probe diagnostic
During calibration the meter will display error (Err) message
as an indicator that the probe needs to be cleaned.
• Long battery life
The Foodcare Meat pH Tester has an exceptional battery
life of approximately 1000 hours. When the battery power
is running low, a low battery indicator is displayed.
• Economical
The Foodcare Meat pH Tester is a fully featured
meter at a price that is affordable for both the
hobbyist and Meat making professional.
