LC2 Conductivity Meter





Provides measurement of electrical conductivity of solvents and solvent borne paint formulations for electrostatic spray applications.

LC2 Conductivity Meter
  • Stainless steel measuring cell and electrodes
  • Solvent resistant housing

The BYK-Gardner LC 2 Conductivity Meter was developed in cooperation with the VDA (Association of German Automotive Industry) following VDA standards.

This conductivity meter works only with solvents and solvent based paints. The presence of water will cause electrolysis and results in false readings.

Features

top

When measuring conductivity, liquid builds up a specific ohmic resistance to the electric current, depending on the applied voltage. The reciprocal value is the conductivity. The measured resistance depends on the geometric arrangement of the electrodes within the measuring cell. In order to be independent of the measuring cell, the measured resistance has to be divided by the cell constant "C" which yields specific resistance. The specific resistance describes the application and performance properties of electrocoating paints.

Measurement of the resistance of liquid paints is carried out in the annular passage of the measuring cell. The measuring cell consists of two separable parts. The electrodes are arranged concentrically (SQ-B1710) or parallel (SQ-B1712), thus forming an annular passage. They are insulated from each other. The electrodes of the measuring cell are made of stainless steel, with the surface polished and therefore easy to clean. Only an absolutely clean measuring cell guarantees that the entire surface of the electrode is available for measurement. The probe is impervious and can be immersed in solvents for a short time.
