The SM-10 has been discontinued. You may check on the availability of remaining SM-10 stock.

NEWPORT's SM-10 Digital Salt Analyzer provides a rapid, economical method for testing sodium chloride in food products. Developed expressly for food industry, the SM-10 eliminates the need for costly, time consuming titrations by using a dip style electrode for analysis. Factory calibrated for % NaCl in water, a front panel mounted adjustment knob permits recalibration for the specific product being tested. Two switch selectable ranges 0-2% and 0-20% provide high resolution digital reading of tested salt values.

SM-10's describe the non-linear relationship between conductivity and percent salt adjusted for temperature. The specific factory calibration is for NaCl in water.

Soak samples of dry or surface salted foods in distilled water to produce a sample fluid or use packing fluid from wet packed products for analysis. When the electrode is dipped in the sample, the percent of salt concentration is displayed digitally. Display will read "1" if the concentration is over scale.

Recalibration for salts (other than NaCl in H20) with similar Conductivity vs % Salt Concentration characteristics is possible using the calibration adjustment on the front panel. Adjust the digital value to match the titration results. This provides a single point recalibration.

Salts dissociate at differing rates in different solvents. Each has a unique Conductivity vs % Salt graph. While similar, these are not precise duplicates. The SM-10 can be calibrated to match a single one titration point. A chart is needed if full range values are required.
