These chemically neutral Non-Polarizable Electrodes are indispensable for surveys requiring precise, sensitive measurements. Simply add distilled water as needed before use in surveys.
Non-polarizable electrodes are used in surveys to eliminate the polarization effect that occurs when using metal (stainless steel) electrodes. This polarization effect is noise, which distorts the IP or SP measurement you’re looking for.
Non-Polarizable Electrodes are essential for induced polarization (IP) and self/spontaneous potential (SP) surveying—methods useful for:
Identifying leakage in dams
Searching for chlorinated solvents like light nonaqueous phase liquid (LNAPL) and dense nonaqueous phase liquid (DNAPL)
Electrodes feature copper rod and ceramic tips
Components are replaceable
- Pre-charged with copper sulfate (CuSO4) salt crystals
