The Model FE is designed to operate in extreme environments with high temperatures, high pressures and / or contaminated electrolytes where ordinary reference electrodes cannot survive. A permanent bridge is installed at each location where potential readings are desired. The reference element is contained in a separate housing which isolates it from the aggressive environment; this substantially increases its service life. When continuous readings are required, the reference is threaded into the bridge. For intermittent readings, the reference is simply pressed into the bridge. This allows a single reference to be used with several bridges. Further details are shown on the following pages.
