Robust Probe for Online Oxygen Monitoring
Oxygen Dipping Probe DP-PSt3
The oxygen dipping probe type PSt3 for measurement in normal oxygen range consists of a polymer optical fiber where one end is coated with an oxygen-sensitive foil. The end of the fiber is covered in a high grade steel tube to protect both the sensor material and the fiber. The steel tube has an outer diameter of 4 mm and a length of 10 cm. Other lengths are available on request. Due to the use of a polymer optical fiber this probe is compatible to temperatures up to + 70 °C.
- Excellent long-term stability
- Pressure resistant (max. 5 bar)
- No membrane cleaning and replacement necessary
- No electrolyte solution to replenish
- Long shelf life
Long-term Measurements in Soil
PreSens offers dipping probes for oxygen measurement that does not consume oxygen. Due to their small dimensions they do not disturb the flow and mass-transport and consequently display the in-situ oxygen concentration. As minisensors from PreSens are long-term stable they can be implanted in soil for many years! With this new method the process of soil aeration, which is very critical for plant productivity, can be investigated.

Environmental Research: Investigation in Soil Filters
Due to the small outer dimension and mechanical robustness the oxygen dipping probe offers the possibility to measure the oxygen content in-situ in columns filled with filter sands during the flow of sewage (see picture on the left). The results show that a lack of oxygen stops the nitrification process.
