Do You Need to Measure Resistivity?

Measuring resistivity may sound like another term for parenting a toddler, but it is actually a common scientific phrase. Measuring resistivity refers to measuring how well a substance resists an electric charge. For instance, we all know that water conducts electricity well (that’s why your parents always made you get out of the pool when a storm was brewing).

The truth is that completely sterile water doesn’t actually conduct electricity well. In fact, it’s the dissolved particulates and salts within water that makes it so conductive. (These materials are considered to have low resistivity.)

Scientists and researchers use special instruments to measure how well a certain substance conducts or resists an electrical charge. Here at Pathfinder Instruments, we sell a variety of equipment that lets our customers take those measurements. We also sell resistivity probes, like the:

·       Pathfinder RC-20/10

·       Pathfinder RC-20/15

·       Pathfinder RC-20/20

·       Pathfinder RC – 20/25

·       Pathfinder RC – 20/30

·       Pathfinder RC-20/40

·       Pathfinder RC-20/50

These are all different versions of a probe that can be placed in a material to help measure resistivity. If you are looking for top-of-the-line resistivity measurement equipment, give us a call today.
