Redox Meter Introduction
- Redox meter, also known as ORP meter, is used to define the oxidizing properties of solutions and monitor or measure the chemical reactions to quantify the ion activity
- It is used to measure the oxidizing or reducing potential of the water sample, primarily potable and industrial water samples. Redox meter provides information about the metal and total salt present in the water. It is majorly used where reliable, accurate, and exact measurements are required.
- Redox meter is used in laboratories to measure pH, conductivity, temperature, and oxidation-reduction potential of a solution
- There are three types of redox meters: redox handle meters, redox meters with an external probe, and tabletop redox meters
- The global redox meter market is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to the increase in demand for these in laboratories to measure the oxidation-reduction potential of solutions
