Dri-Ref Reference Electrode, 2 mm
Low electrolyte leakage, stable potential with low resistance
- 2 mm diameter
- Extremely low electrolyte leakage
- Stable, reproducible potential with low resistance
- Chemically resistant to strong acids and bases
- May be used with ion selective electrodes without contamination from the reference electrode
- Small volume, low salt concentration measurement (SDR)
Dri-Ref™ reference electrodes were developed by WPI to have extremely low electrolyte leakage properties, hence the name “Dri-Ref.” In addition to this key feature, these electrodes exhibit stable and reproducible potential and low resistance. Stored in KCl when not in use, they have a long life expectancy.
May be used with ion selective electrodes
Although the internal filling solution contains KCI, the low fluid leakage means Dri-Ref may be used in combination with ion selective electrodes, including those for K+ and Cl-, without significant contamination from the reference electrode.
The Dri-Ref electrodes are chemically resistant to strong acids and alkalines. Dri-Ref electrodes are not suitable for use in organic solvents. In addition, the long, thin FLEXREF may be easily manipulated to accommodate a difficult experimental setup.
SUPER-Dri-Ref – With a diameter of 2mm, SUPER-Dri-Ref does not leak electrolyte at all. Exhibiting the electrical stability of a classic flowing junction reference cell, this electrode exhibits low resistance and a stable half-cell potential essentially independent of sample electrolyte concentration. SUPER-Dri-Ref is ideal for small volume and low salt concentration measurements.
Micro-Reference Electrode – Only 450 µm in diameter and one inch long, the new DRIREF-450 reference electrode can be used along with other sensors in space-restricted areas and very small sample volumes.
Luer-Tip Reference – The male luer fitting at the front of the DRIREF-L allows it to be easily connected to a female luer port.
