Redox & Oxygen Testers
Product Type: Corrosion
Corrosion or the potential of all types of water to corrode can be quantified by making Reduction/Oxidation measurements (REDOX). These are extremely easy to perform but often difficult to interpret.
The potential (mV) will reflect the availability of electrons or the state of equilibrium between reactant and products. The platinum electrode is non specific and will therefore produce an output that varies not only with the ratio of oxidised and reduced species but is also affected by Ionic strength and temperature. REDOX is a particularly useful measurement in corrosion studies, disinfection, chlorination and to detect the presence of chemically active substances.
Cathodic protection and the measurement of the Hull potentials of Boats is an area where the REDOX measurement can be valuable. REDOX measurements in the water can help avoid corroding environments and direct Hull measurement can indicate the state of the Hull without removing the craft from the water.
