Portable Food & Dairy and Meat pH Meters (Hanna Instruments)

These meters are equipped with everything you need for successful testing right out of the box.


Features found in both meters

  • An on-screen indicator provides visual confirmation that your probe is working at its best.
  • Built durable with Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) to withstand the knocks, drops, and spills of real life, ensuring top performance in any environment. PVDF, a food grade plastic, is resistant to most chemicals and solvents used for disinfection in the food sector, including chlorine (bleach).
  • Made to fit comfortably in your hand for on-the-go testing. The multi-level LCD display provides at-a-glance readings of pH and temperature from any angle and dual button operation streamlines the testing process for any user.
  • A Quick Connect DIN connector makes attaching and removing the probe simple and easy. The rubber coating protects the cable and provides a water-tight seal without twisting.
  • Single-use pH 4 & 7 buffer sachets for calibration are included to get you started.
  • Uses common 1.5 AAA batteries (included)
  • Low battery indicator
  • Automatic shut-off


Food & Dairy pH Meter
Designed to bring simplicity to pH testing of food and dairy products. The specialized probe features a Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) body, conical tip, and open junction making it ideal for direct measurement of semi-solid foods.

  • The open junction design reduces clogging from suspended solids and proteins found in food and dairy products for a more stable pH measurement and reduced maintenance.
  • The conical shaped tip design allows for penetration into solids, semi solids, and emulsions for the direct measurement of pH in a variety of food products. Low Temperature (LT) glass is used for quicker results at lower temperatures.
  • Includes cleaning solution that has been engineered to keep your electrode free from oils and solids found in food products. This concentrated combination of detergents cleans your meter quickly and effectively so that your meter stays in optimum condition.



Meat pH Meter
Designed to bring simplicity to pH testing of meat products and engineered to withstand the tough environment of meat processing plants. The specialized probe features a Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) body, conical tip with stainless steel blade, and open junction making it ideal for the measurement of pH in meat processing.

  • The open junction design reduces clogging from materials found in meat products for a more stable pH measurement and reduced maintenance.
  • The conical shaped tip design allows for direct penetration into meat and meat products. The stainless-steel blade is razor sharp for easy piercing into meat and other semi-solids while protecting the glass bulb.
  • Includes cleaning solution that has been engineered to keep your electrode free from oils and proteins found in meat and meat products.
