In stock

The HI981036 Meat pH Tester has been carefully designed to take direct pH measurements during meat processing. The built-in probe features an open reference junction, conical glass tip, and a removable sleeve design, making it ideal for measuring the pH of meat.

  • 0.01 resolution with ±0.05 pH accuracy
  • Specialized electrode for spot checking the pH during meat processing
  • Comes with everything necessary to start measuring right away


Better Features for Better Testing

An onscreen stability indicator ensures confidence in your results. The selectable auto-off feature prolongs battery life for peace-of-mind and energy savings if the meter is accidentally left on.

Pocket Sized

The compact size makes the Meat pH Tester ideal for on-the-go testing. A large LCD display provides at-a-glance readings from any angle and single button operation streamlines the testing process for any user.

Long Battery Life

The included CR2032 Li-ion battery provides up to 1000 hours of continuous use. When the battery needs changing,  a blinking icon battery icon will notify you so you never miss a measurement.

Unique Open Junction with Removable Sleeve

The outer junction is protected by a sleeve that can be removed to clean the junction.  Electrolyte can be added to refresh the junction, improving the pH measurement and extending the life of the electrode. 

Conical Glass Tip

The conical shaped tip design allows for direct penetration into meat and meat products.


Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a durable food-grade plastic that is resistant to most chemicals and solvents used for disinfection, including chlorine (bleach).

Meat, Grease, and Fats Cleaning Solution

Your Meat pH Tester comes with cleaning solution that has been engineered to keep your electrode free from oils and protiens found in meat and meat products. This concentrated combination of detergents cleans your tester quickly and effectively so that your tester stays in optimum condition.

pH 4 & 7 Buffer Sachets

When performing a pH calibration it is important that the correct buffers are used. We include some start buffers to get you going. The single-use sachets are individually sealed so you use fresh buffer each time you calibrate. 

Storage Solution

Proper storage of your electrode will ensure reliable measurements and a longer electrode life. Our storage solution is specially formulated to keep the pH glass hydrated while minimizing organic growth.
