Portable Silver/Silver Chloride Reference Electrode
The silver-silver chloride (Ag/AgCl) electrode, sometimes referred to as “SSCE”, is a type of reference electrode, commonly used for testing cathodic protection corrosion control systems in sea water environments. This Ag/AgCl reference electrode can be exposed to seawater or immersed in a silver chloride solution contained in a gas cylinder.
A reference electrode is used to measure the potential of seawater structures and concrete structures. The electrode is composed of silver powder/silver, silver nitrate, hydrochloric acid, and silver chloride with a porous plug at the bottom.
Portable silver/silver chloride reference electrodes for temporary measurement of structure-environment potential; stationary silver/silver chloride reference electrodes for long-term structure-environment potential detection.
