The Milwaukee MW151 MAX pH Bench meter offers:
People choose the MW151 MAX 3-in-1 PRO pH/ORP/Temp Portable Logging Meter to improve the accuracy of their testing program. With up to 5 point calibration and 7 standard buffer choices (2 custom buffers also), the meter can be quickly calibrated to a higher accuracy compared with one or two point calibration. The MW151 MAX meter is accurate to0.002 pH. 8 x more accurate than some alternative meters.
The meter comes with a refillable, glass, double junction pH electrode and MA831R temperature sensor allowing the meter to automatically adjust the pH reading for the effect of temperature (ATC).
The meter can also be used as a very accurate thermometer with accuracy +/-0.4°C (+/-0.8°F).
The rugged meter is built to take knocks, has a sleek design and a small benchtop footprint.
The MW151 MAX pH/OPR/Temp Bench Logging Meter comes with the Milwaukee glass, double junction MA917B/1 pH electrode. This is Milwaukee's top selling lab grade electrode for a reason.

Care and Use
pH meters usually start performing poorly because of problems with the probe. The two parts of the pH probe that cause problems are the glass sensing bulb and the reference junction.
The glass bulb loses sensitivity with use and will eventually fail. This is true of all pH probes.
The reference junction is a small hole that allows the meter to compare the sample to a reference. The reading is generated based on the electrical difference between the sample and reference. If the junction hole gets clogged, the pH electrode will no longer function.
You can extend the life of your pH electrode in the following ways.
Cleaning and Storage
All pH sensors have a limited life and response time gets longer with age. Properly maintaining your pH electrode will give you fast, accurate results for longer. So, be sure to order the Milwaukee pH Maitenance Kit code PH-Main at checkout time! This will be needed to help clean and condition the pH electrode before use!
To minimize clogging the pH probe needs to be kept hydrated. Long periods of dry storage will damage the sensitivity of the probe. Allowing the probe to dry out may also result in the junction hole getting clogged.
Storing in pH probe storage solution or pH calibration buffers will help address both these issues. Do not store in tap water and DI water. This will damage the sensitivity of the probe.
The best way to store the probe is with the probe's cap filled with storage solution or calibration buffer and the cap tightened to prevent leakage. It is also recommended that to store the electrode upright to further reduce the potential for leakage.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Residue from the sample can impact the sensitivity of the sensing bulb and clog the junction. This is especially true if the sample has a lot of organic material. We recommend regularly soaking your electrode in cleaning solution. Also:
1. Inspect the electotrode for damage or scratches, if present replace the electrode.
2. Inspect the cable. The connection cable and insulation must be intact.
3. Connectors should be clean and dry.
4. Rinse off salt deposits with water or DI water.
The pH sensing bulbs become less sensitive over time so make sure that you are calibrating regularly to keep your PRO Plus pH meter accurate. Also, calibrate after cleaning or a long period of storage.
