Demanding work environments such as a power plants, aquaculture, and water treatment facilities understand the need for measurement instruments that are designed to survive in the harshest of places. Since its launch in 2012, the AquaShock® line of handheld waterproof water quality meters changed the industry. The AquaShock® is not only IP67 waterproof, but they are the first to feature waterproof probe attachment points that also accept standard (non-waterproof) BNC probes.
According to company President Devin Sper, “the probe connection point has always been a vulnerability of other meters claiming to be waterproof. The probe is either non-replaceable, or the meter is not truly waterproof when the probe is connected, which defeats the purpose.”
AquaShock® meters feature a screw-down, waterproof housing surrounding the BNC probe connection. When a waterproof connection is not needed, any BNC-connected probe can be utilized. AquaShock® meters are also shockproof, and feature a “soft-grip” surface to help prevent accidental drops, making them perfect for field use. Other features include a large, backlit LCD display, 99-memory review, min/max/average, internal clock and calendar, C° & F°, auto-ranging, and automatic temperature compensation.
There are four AquaShock® models available, all with five-year warranties, measuring pH, mV, ORP, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), conductivity and TDS. Full product information on the AquaShock® line of water quality meters is available at http://www.SperDirect.com.
At Sper Scientific, we certify two categories of instruments:
- Newly purchased instruments are certified prior to shipment, which may extend your order ship day by up to 10 business days. Not all instruments can be certified, when certification is possible an ordering option will appear on the product page.
- Previously purchased instruments are returned annually to Sper Scientific for certification, and may take up to 10 business days to certify.
Purpose of the Program:
There is an increasing requirement by customers for documentation supporting manufacturer’s claims of accuracy on their scientific equipment. This is partially due to the increasing acceptance of quality standards, such as ISO 9000* and GMP**, which require that periodic certification of test equipment be performed and documented. Most testing is done in-house with our own state-of-the-art equipment. Whenever possible and practical, we use N.I.S.T. traceable equipment and N.I.S.T. procedures.
* ISO 9002 1987 (E) Section 4.10
** FDA Good Manufacturing Practices Section 820.61
Each certified product comes with:
• A serial number
• A calibration or certification label
• One of three certificates.*

The Sper Scientific Water Quality Meter Model 850081 uses interchangeable probes to read pH, mV, conductivity, TDS, DO, temperature and ORP, diminishing the need for multiple devices dedicated to testing limited parameters. The user can order probes for only the parameters currently required, and add additional probes in the future. Intelligent probes electronically retain calibration information. No recalibration is required when changing probes.
The display simultaneously reads temperature in user selectable °C & °F, and all measurements are automatically temperature compensated. RS232 port enables communication with a computer. Also features auto power off, hold, min/max, fold-out easel back and a tripod screw. Comes with 9V battery and a hard-shell, foam-lined carrying case with room for one or two probes.
The Sper Scientific Water Quality Meter is ideal for field or plant use in a municipal drinking water or waste-water setting, and is available direct from the manufacturer at SperDirect.com
