What is it used for?
Testing coolants and other aqueous samples.
How does it work?
The electrical conductivity of a liquid sample is determined by the resistance of the solution between two electrodes within the meter.
It essentially measures how well electricity flows in a given solution.
What do the results tell us?
Generally the results tell us about the levels of conductive ions from salts and other inorganic material within the sample. It can be a good indicator of the presence of corrosion-causing compounds and impurities in a sample.
