The TLC Meter is ideal for profiling conductivity and temperature in wells and open water. It displays accurate measurements of conductivity and temperature on a convenient LCD display that rotates for ease of reading.
The high quality PVDF flat tape reels smoothly, remains flexible and hangs straight in the well, irrespective of temperature. The flat tape is mounted on a sturdy, well-balanced Solinst reel, with a convenient battery drawer for the 9 Volt alkaline battery. Permanent laser markings each 1/100 ft or millimeter allow accurate readings.
Stranded stainless steel conductors and copper coated steel conductors resist corrosion, provide strength and are non-stretch. They make the tape easy to repair and splice. The dog- bone design reduces adherence to wet surfaces.
The TLC Meter operates in a range from -15ºC to +50ºC (23ºF to 122ºF). You may choose to have the readings displayed on the LCD screen in ºC or ºF. Accuracy is +/- 0.2°C in Celsius, or +/- 0.4°F in Fahrenheit. The ‘smart’ TLC probe automatically adjusts the measured conductivity values to display as specific conductance standardized to 25ºC. This provides standardized, repeatably comparable measurements.
The TLC Meter uses a ‘smart’ conductivity sensor with platinum electrodes to measure conductivity. The conductivity is displayed on the rotating screen along with the associated temperature measurement. The ‘smart probe’ displays conductivity that has been standardized to 25°C, i.e. Specific Conductance (displayed as EC). The conductance temperature coefficient is 2.0% per °C.
