High Temperature Conductivity Cell

Small volume conductivity cell with a nominal constant of 1.0 cm -1. Operating between- 50 °C to 180 °C

A sealed, small volume conductivity cell covering a wide conductivity range

The High Temperature Conductivity cell (HTCC) is a sealed 2- pole conductivity cell with a nominal constant of 1.0 cm-1. It is intended for conductivity range between 2 μS cm-1 and 0.2 S cm-1.

The HTCC consists of two platinum electrodes placed parallel to one another. Two models are available: Platinized and non-platinized cells. Each platinum electrode of the platinized cell is coated with a black platinum layer in order to increase the effective surface area of the electrode. Reduced volume cells for HTCC need as little as 0.5 ml of liquid/gel, reducing the cost of experiments and their environmental impact (less waste). HTCC cells can operate in a temperature range between – 50 °C and 180 °C. They are compatible with Intermediate Temperature Systems (ITS-e).  These cells can be purchased separately for tests with potentiostats or impedance analysers. The black platinum of the cell can also be re-generated.
