1 X Orion MX8 Dipslide Incubator (up to 8 dipslide capacity)
2 x boxes of Bacteria & Yeast / Mould testing dipslides (Nutrient and Malt Extract Agar), 20 dipslides in total.
1 x pH Tester
This kit features a larger capacity incubator than our standard metal cutting test kit. It also features a pH tester rather than strips. This is a more long term solution as you will not need to keep buying pH strips when they run out.
Testing the pH of metal cutting fluid can indicate whether levels are corrosive. Low pH levels can be caused by the presence of bacteria. This is why using dipslides and a pH tester together gives a fuller indication of the 'health' and quality of your cutting fluid.
Ideally, you do not want your cutting fluid to have a lower pH than approx 8.5 as any fluid that is too acidic will corrode metals. However, you don't want a pH level that is too high as it can pose a risk to health (skin irritation etc).
There is now also an option to add a refractometer to this kit, please choose from the dropdown if you wish to do this.
