Milwaukee MW150 MAX pH/ORP/Temp Bench Meter
Milwaukee MW150 MAX pH/ORP/Temp Bench Meter
The Milwaukee MW150 MAX 3-in-1 pH/OPR/Temp. Bench Meter is fast, reliable, simple to operate, and is designed with a small lab space footprint. It is ideal for use by brewers, wine makers, growers, labs, food processing, water treatment and many other applications with challenging pH measurement needs.
With up to 3-point calibration and 7 standard buffer choices, the meter can be quickly calibrated to a higher accuracy compared with 1 or 2-point calibration. The MW150 MAX Bench Meter is accurate to ± 0.01 pH, 5x more accurate than some alternative meters.
The meter comes with a double junction pH electrode and temperature sensor MA831R, allowing it to automatically adjust the pH reading for the effect of temperature (ATC).
The MW150 comes with the Milwaukee refillable glass MA917B/1 pH electrode and has a BNC connector allowing easy interchange to any pH Milwaukee electrode.

CARE AND USE
pH meters usually start performing poorly because of problems with the probe, specifically the glass sensing bulb and the reference junction. The glass bulb loses sensitivity with use and will eventually fail, which is true of all pH probes. The reference junction is a small hole that allows the meter to compare the sample to a reference. If the junction hole gets clogged, the pH probe will no longer function.
The life of your pH electrode can be extended in the following ways:
Storage - The pH probe needs to be kept hydrated. Long periods of dry storage will damage the sensitivity of the probe. Allowing the probe to dry out may also result in the junction hole getting clogged. Storing in pH probe storage solution or pH calibration buffers will help address both these issues. Do not store in tap water and DI water, this will damage the sensitivity of the probe. The best way to store the probe is with the probe's cap filled with storage solution or calibration buffer and the cap tightened to prevent leakage. It is also recommended to store the electrode upright to further reduce the potential for leakage.
Cleaning and Maintenance - Residue from the sample can impact the sensitivity of the sensing bulb and clog the junction. This is especially true if the sample has a lot of organic material. It is recommended to regularly soak your electrode in cleaning solution.
It is also recommended to:
- Inspect the electrode for damage or scratches. If they are present, replace the electrode.
- Inspect the cable. The connection cable and insulation must be intact.
- Connectors should be clean and dry
- Rinse off salt deposits with water or DI water.
Calibration - The pH sensing bulbs become less sensitive over time so make sure that you are calibrating regularly to keep your meter accurate. Also, calibrate after cleaning or a long period of storage.
