Pocket Testers Communicate With Mobile App

The Myron L Co.’s Ultrapen PTBTx wireless pocket testers are designed to be paired with any Apple iOS 8+ device via the Ultrapen's Bluetooth BLE transceiver.

A free app takes advantage of Apple's iOS graphical user interface to provide easy-to-read displays and a simple-to-use interface. The Bluetooth link means that there are no wires getting in the way when moving quickly between samples and that paired mobile devices can be held safely away from liquids.

Pocket Tester Measures Free Chlorine, Temperature

Ultrapen PT4 is Myron L Co.’s new pocket tester for measuring free chlorine disinfecting power, free chlorine equivalent (FCE) and temperature. It is waterproof and designed to be accurate, fast and simple to use in diverse water quality applications.


Expert Manages Storm Water Discharge in Active Construction Sites

Mike Alberson, an expert in storm water pollution prevention, uses the Ultrameter II to meet new and existing state and federal requirements for storm water monitoring. He checks for the presence of pollutants by testing the levels of total dissolved solids (TDS) and conductivity. He also tests storm water pH levels in accordance with NPDES guidelines implemented in California in 2010 that mandate pH testing for all Risk Level 2 and 3 sites.

Lafayette Textile Manufacturer Reduces Costs and Wastes

When Lafayette South America textile manufacturer in Bogota, Colombia, couldn’t find the little blue paper strips it had previously used to test for the presence of sodium hydrosulphite in its post reduction dyebath, it went looking for an alternative.


Graduate Student Maps Fluoride Contamination in Rural Ghana

The need for safe drinking water in rural Ghana inspired Katherine Alfredo, a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin to propose a project for a Fulbright Fellowship. The purpose of the fellowship was to map the extent of the fluoride concentration in the Bongo District of the Upper Eastern Region for use by local authorities and eventually use the data collected in the development of a cost-effective defluoridation filter for existing capped wells.

Case Studies

Ultrameter II

Myron L Co.'s Ultrameter II water quality instruments deliver the most accurate readings of conductivity, resistivity and TDS of any digital handheld meter and are as accurate as other electrometric handhelds in measuring pH, oxidation reduction potential (ORP) and temperature.

Case Studies

Water Quality Meter

Ideal for testing water in the field or in the lab, the Ultrameter II precisely measures up to six water quality parameters: conductivity, resistivity, TDS, pH, ORP and temperature.

The Ultrameter II is waterproof, buoyant, easy to calibrate and easy to use. Simply rinse and fill the cell cup with the sample, then press a parameter button. Instant, objective numerical results display on a full four-digit LCD screen.
