Product News: Green Electrodes Meet the Latest Environmental Standards

Latest sensors from METTLER-TOLEDO are free of lead, mercury, and other hazardous substances prohibited under ROHS guidelines.

Published: Sunday, February 7, 2010 - 15:35

(Mettler-Toledo Inc.: Columbus, OH) -- METTLER-TOLEDO announces that it is the first manufacturer to bring to market ROHS (restriction of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment) and WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) compliant electrodes. METTLER-TOLEDO reports that users of these electrodes have found them to be ideal for their applications. The latest sensors from METTLER-TOLEDO are free of lead, mercury, and other hazardous substances prohibited under ROHS guidelines, making them easier to dispose of at the end of their life cycle.

Available in a variety of styles, including refillable and low-maintenance versions, InLab electrodes are designed to meet the most stringent requirements of today’s laboratory.

METTLER-TOLEDO offers electrode products for a variety of applications, such as pharmaceutical samples, chemicals, pure water, cosmetics and food. All sensors have self explanatory names, making the choice of the right sensor easier than ever. Examples of some new models are:

  • The InLab Micro Pro, a TRIS-compatible micro-electrode with long-life ARGENTHAL reference and an integrated temperature probe enabling more accurate readings thanks to automatic temperature compensation.
  • The InLab Viscous, an electrode with an easy-to-clean design and the industry’s first SteadyForce reference system which uses a unique overpressure electrolyte system, guaranteeing electrolyte discharge while eliminating junction contamination issues. This state-of-the-art sensor yields extremely reproducible results for highly viscous samples such as resins, suspensions and cosmetics.
  • The InLab Expert Pro, a generalist with a maintenance-free XEROLYT polymer electrolyte features two open reference junctions that cannot clog, irrespective of the sample being measured.
