Dissolved Oxygen Electrodes

Steam sterilizable dissolved oxygen electrodes are specifically designed for fermentation applications where the DO electrodes are subjected to repeat steam sterilization. A unique feature of the Polarographic electrodes is the easily replaced membrane cartridge. The membrane is of special construction - a silicon and teflon composite reinforced with stainless steel mesh. This design is extremely rugged and ideal for use in extreme conditions such fermenters. The electrode can be operated without maintenance for 5 to 10 sterilizations, fermentation cycles - or 6 to 8 weeks.
The Biolaffitte type galvanic DO electrodes features FEP Teflon membranes

The polarographic dissolved oxygen electrodes are availble with or without automatic temperature compensation. They are designed to match the Ingold IL oxygen amplifier. Temperature compensation is not normally required when calibration is made at the same temperature that the Fermenter will be controlled. ( without variation )
