The aim of this book is to give a representative description of pH measurement in the process industries. The actual sensor, the pH electrode, is therefore the main focus of the text. Correct sensor use is fundamental for a meaningful pH measurement. Accordingly, both practical and theoretical requirements are discussed in depth so that the measuring principle is understood and an accurate measurement made possible. The first section (practical considerations) of the book describes the sensor, and the other elements that constitute a pH measurement system. Together with a troubleshooting diagram, this section gives the information needed in order to ensure the correct working of the pH electrodes for long periods of time. The second, application orientated section gives solutions to different measuring tasks, giving examples from the lab and from industry. The last, theoretical part explains the basis of the pH measurement and completes, by further explanation, the information given in the first section. In addition, this book is outlined to be a useful tool in solving different measuring tasks. Thereby it can be read either in its totality or in parts.
