What is the difference between the pH electrode cap styles?

T-Pull Cap

T-Pull CapThe T-Pull handle eases installation and removal of the electrode from the housing and greatly reduces fatigue of the extension cable. The electrode can be removed from the housing without rotating the electrode and twisting the cable. Also, the retainer nut is part of the handle and cannot be lost or misplaced. This FermProbe® style has a standard S8 detachable cable connection on a metric threaded polymer cap that allows it to be used with European style electrode housings.

Features:

– Rugged T-Pull cap design eases removal of electrode from housing. No tools required.
– Greatly reduces cable fatigue.
– Electrode retainer nut is part of the handle. Cannot be lost or misplaced.
– Available with integral cable.


Standard S8 Metric Cap

Standard S8 Metric CapThis FermProbe® style features a standard S8 detachable cable connection on a metric threaded polymer cap that allows the electrode to be used with European style electrode housings. The standard metric cap is a newer autoclavable design that protects the connector pin from breakage. The design requires the rotation of the electrode during installation. It is compatible with Euro-designed housings requiring a metric Pg13.5 threaded electrode cap.

Features:

– Metric threaded cap is compatible with nearly all European designed bioprocess electrode housings.
– Steam sterilizable and autoclavable.
– First choice for use with small autoclavable vessels.
– Available in a variety of lengths for different insertion length requirements and applications.


K9 Metric Cap

K9 metric capThe original K9 autoclavable cap design is still used in many existing bioprocess systems. This FermProbe® style features a K9 detachable cable connection on a metric threaded polymer cap that allows the electrode to be used with European style electrode housings. The design requires the rotation of the electrode during installation. It is compatible with Euro-designed housings requiring a metric Pg13.5 threaded electrode cap.

Features:

– Metric threaded cap is compatible with nearly all European designed bioprocess electrode housings.
– Steam sterilizable and autoclavable.
– First choice for use with small autoclavable vessels.
– Available in a variety of lengths for different insertion length requirements and applications.
