605 – SS Ball Valve Retractable pH Sensor

SS Body Ball Valve Retractable pH Sensor, with Lanyard Cables

The IC Controls model 605 was designed to provide reliable pH measurement in demanding applications where pressure cannot be reduced to zero for sensor removal.


The model 605 meets the requirement for a ball valve insertion sensor in pulp & paper stock lines and other difficult applications.

The small cross-section steel housing with epoxy-encapsulated sensor better survives the rigors of direct insertion into dense stock. Larger-diameter sensors are more subject to pressures that can cause breakage during insertion and removal caused by bending of the sensor.

This sensor was originally requested as a replaceable cartridge style. However, cartridges experienced drifting and premature failure due to moisture reaching the BNC fitting on the back of the sensor cartridge. The Model 605 single-piece epoxy-encapsulated sensor eliminates the moisture problem and provides long, trouble-free operating life.

For Reliable Measurement Where Tough Processes Require

  • The strength of stainless steel at only 2 cm (¾ inch) diameter
  • Sealed, disposable design
  • Solution ground
  • Ball valve retraction to alleviate process interruption during calibration or service


  • Sealed self-pressurizing design
  • Stainless steel body; optional titanium body and PVDF cartridge available
  • Stable annular reference chamber
  • Low maintenance
  • Easy calibration
