    ph meter

    I contacted hack and the refer me to a local person totally lost. let see what price they came with. if not I will go with the hanna. I like the brand becasue my daughter name is hannah. But if it cost an arm an a leg I will look some place else.


    thanks to all for the inputs, getting close for my first comercial batch

    I just bought a milwaukee 102 after reading reviews and getting suggestions from different forums. Its one of the tried and true models out there thats very reasonably priced with replaceable probes. (The probes only last about 2 years im told and less if you use them in higher temps regardless of the ATC function)

    You can buy Hach straight from their website - no dealer needed.

    hack too expensive

    I got a quote of $936.00 plus local tax. too expensive I was willing to spend in the 300 to 400 range. it seems the hanna will be the one. I will compare with the hack portable. but for sure will be buying in the US not locally.

    thanks

    Something to consider is that the fundamental of good pH measurement is the electrode. Meters all use a similar electronics so, if you are working to a budget, my advice would be to buy a good, branded, second-user meter and fit a new electrode.

    For example a second-user Mettler SevenEasy can be bought for ~$200 and a new pH electrode would be around the same ( here in the UK we use Russell electrodes - www.rmsupply.co.uk )
