When these housings are used with the Sartorius safety port, the port will release internal steam pressure in the vessel before the housing is completely disengaged from the port. The metric FermProbe pH electrodes thread directly into the 346 style housing, eliminating the need for a threaded retainer nut. In order to prevent twisting the cable, the metric FermProbes have a detachable cable. This feature is very helpful when calibrating the pH electrode tank side in a production environment.
A guarded version is also available (see model 356). Using a guarded housing is highly recommended for pH electrodes to provide maximum protection against damage to the sensing bulb. However, highly viscous media is prone to clog the guard.
