    Sounds like it has decent specs - accuracy to 1.5% full scale and resolution down to 0.01 ppm.
    So, if I understand correctly, full scale is 19.99 ppm - accuracy is about 0.3 ppm. Seems like
    it should ...

    Your sanitizer is saturated with dissolved oxygen that immediately starts coming out of
    solution when you start pushing it out with co2 (the partial pressure of oxygen is zero in the
    headspace when fi...

    I had a full 20 lb tank empty itself in my garage a few weeks ago. I was in my house when the
    rupture disk blew - I figured out pretty quickly what it was. I opened the door to pull the
    tank out (it w...

    conical dur...

    Jay,Those are sweet! Much prettier welds than my crappy soldering.To the folks buying these
    yeast harvesters - I added gas-in and liquid-out posts to my lid. I did this so that I could
    fill a jar with...

    Edit: just found a reader by hanna instruments that reads free chlorine. $50. Not too bad and
    it is accurate to .03 ppm. If chlorine is the issue, it would be good for me to have this so I
    can check i...

    durbacher,I had one yesterday - quite tasty!Obviously, it has been aging for a while and I
