A ph glass electrode is a type of ion-selective electrode made of a doped glass membrane that is sensitive to a specific ion. The most common application of ion-selective glass electrodes is for the measurement of pH.
The pH electrode is an example of a glass electrode that is sensitive to hydrogen ions. Glass electrodes play an important part in the instrumentation for chemical analysis and physicochemical studies. The voltage of the glass electrode, relative to some reference value, is sensitive to changes in the activity of a certain type of ions.
Glass electrodes are commonly used for pH measurements. There are also specialized ion sensitive glass electrodes used for the determination of the concentration of lithium, sodium, ammonium, and other ions.
Glass electrodes have been utilized in a wide range of applications including pure research, control of industrial processes, analysis of foods and cosmetics, measurement of environmental indicators, and microelectrode measurements such as cell membrane electrical potential and soil acidity.
The Global pH glass electrode market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Release of World’s First*1 Gel-filled*2 Self-Cleaning pH Electrode Using Antifouling Technology HORIBA Advanced Techno has released the world’s first*1 Gel-filled Self-Cleaning pH Electrode using antifoul technology.
HORIBA Advanced Techno has a high reputation in the water quality monitoring and analysis instrumentation business.
The sewage and wastewater treatment plants utilize activated sludge*3 for their water cleaning process operation and it requires pH testing and condition management.
The new Gel-filled Self-Cleaning pH Electrode has photocatalyst technology (anatase titanium dioxide)*4 leveraging discoveries made in joint research with Mie University (Tsu-city, Mie prefecture, Japan) and an ultraviolet light-emitting diode (UV-LED) built into the electrode.
These proprietary HORIBA technologies*5 achieve an antifouling effect against organic contaminants and realize stable continuous measurements in wastewater treatment processes where electrodes easily become soiled.
These innovations dramatically reduce the frequency and labor required for electrode maintenance (up to approx. 99%*6 reduction) to not only alleviate the burden placed on users who clean, calibrate, and manually run analyses on a daily basis but also help overcome the challenge of on-site labor shortages.
