pH Sensor - Suitable for NH₃/brine leakage detection

Technical data: HBPH-MK2-LT

HBPH-MK2-LT is a pH sensor designed for the extreme requirements of industrial refrigeration. It is used to measure the pH value of brine in case of an ammonia leak in a heat exchanger. Brine has a pH value of 7, and even for small leaks, the pH will rise to 9-10. The sensor is designed with differential measurement technology that ensures a minimum lifetime of 2 years for the sensor element.

The latest version HBPH-MK2-LT has an improved and protected universal flat-faced glass process electrode specially designed for tough applications.

The HBPH-MK2-LT -sensor can be used together with our “NH3/Brine leakage Display” type HBPH-C1 which is a controller used to calibrate and set up the alarm limit for the HBPH-MK2-LT sensor.

The HBPH-MK2-LT sensor comes with 3-pack salt bridge replacement kit.

HBPH-C1 can be found here.

Factory Calibration:

A standard factory calibration would guaranty the accuracy of 88% or better (usually in mid 90's) and the offset of 0.85pH of fewer for a brand new sensor. 

Using 4mA = 0pH and 20mA = 14pH, the worst case scenario (88% accuracy and max allowed offset) may equate to roughly speaking ±1.0 pH assuming no calibration is done at the installation site.

In case the above mentioned accuracy is not enough use an external controller or a PLC to calibrate the signal. Calibration is carried out with buffer solution pH 4 and pH10 as 2 point calibration.
