Model 1152 Electrical Conductivity Meter

The Model 1152 Digital Conductivity meter  provides a measurement of electrical conductivity of fluids in conductivity units (CU) , which are defined as picosiemens per meter in ASTM D2624. The rugged Electro/mechanical design of the Model 1152 meter facilitates ease of use for both laboratory and field applications. Initially the electrical conductivity meter was designed and developed for safety reasons to measure the electrical conductivity of hydrocarbon fuels, particularly jet fuels. Subsequently, the meter was modified with other conductivity ranges to accommodate measurement of a variety of fluids for use in many different applications.

Model 1154 Precision Conductivity Meter

ASTM Standard Test Method D4308

Many applications require highly accurate “rest” electrical conductivity measurements of fluids ranging in values from less than one pS/m to several thousand. “Rest” conductivity is the electrical conductivity at the initial instant of current measurement after a dc voltage is impressed between electrodes (reciprocal of the resistance of uncharged fluid in the absence of ionic depletion or polarization). The Precision Conductivity Meter was originally designed to precisely measure the conductivity of hydrocarbon fuels only.

  • Four standard ranges provide high resolution and accurate direct measurement of electrical conductivity of fluids from.01 to 200,000 picosiemens per meter (pS/m)
  • Capable of being modified to provide higher conductivity ranges
  • Optional capability to measure sample temperature
  • Mechanical design of the Conductivity (KSLA) Cell allows accurate self measuring of the test sample volume (100 mL)
