offer two types of reference electrodes: Leak-Free, the LF series,
and the Low-Leakage, KZT series.
Our new Leak-Free junction series, LF,
enables you to perform your experiments in organic solvents, perchlorate
and silver salts solutions, or Hydrofluoric
acids without being worried about clogging or degradation!
It can also be used for long term experiments without the worry that
the filling electrolyte be diluted or run out.
This Leaking-Free reference electrode uses our newly developed conductive
junction (patent pending). The filling electrolyte is confined to
the barrel and will not leak at all (zero leakage). The Junction has
very high conductivity with resistance under 10 K-Ohm. It has exceptional
mechanical stability, zero swelling, resistance to organic solvents,
and robust. The junction potential is independent of the sample nature
or ionic strength. The electrode body is constructed from PEEK for
superior chemical resistance. The
filling electrolyte (3.4 M KCl) does not leak through the junction
which prevents sample contamination with chloride and potassium ions.
This means no clogging and no need for double junction. Since the
electrode construction does not involve any glass, it can be used
in Hydrofluoric Acid solutions.
The junction of this reference electrode is made of modified glass
to obtain the maximum conductivity with resistance under 2 K-Ohm and
minimum electrolyte leakage. Different lengths are available upon
This is the same as KZT-2
except that its diameter is 5 mm.
