Conforms to API Recommended Practice 13B-1, ANSI/API 13B-1/ISO 10414-1
Resistivity Meters are electronic meters used to measure the resistivity of fluids, slurries or semi-solids. These instruments feature solid state electronics, and are designed to meet the needs of field and laboratory personnel for resistivity measurement according to API Recommended Practice 13B-1. Conductivity of the medium being measured is obtained by taking the reciprocal of the resistivity measurement.
The Model 653B Resistivity Meter is a solid-state, electronic meter used to measure the resistivity of fluids, slurries or semi-solids that have resistivities of 2 0.01 to 10 ohm-meters/meters². The instrument features a transparent sample cell with a built-in thermometer. It is packaged in a lightweight high-density polypropylene case and is suitable for onsite testing.
