9 Reasons Why ATAGO Salt Meters are Chosen

Sturdy titanium electrodes. Mere 0.08% failure rate.

Sturdy titanium electrodes. Mere 0.08% failure rate.

The world’s first to use durable and sturdy “titanium” electrodes. The use of titanium electrodes conquered typical issues like susceptibility to scratches over a period of time and fluctuating measurement results that are common with gold plated electrodes.

Completely water protected model no other offers

Completely water protected model no other offers

Rated IP 65 water protection. Ready to sustain tough conditions whether in a kitchen or production floor.

Highly chemical resistant PBT body

Highly chemical resistant PBT body

Highly chemical resistant material, PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) is used as a casing material. Unbreakable and sturdy body casing.

Salinity to a decimal point

Salinity to a decimal point

We have heard many concerned voices with the accuracy of the conventional salt meters that only display rough estimated salt levels and how results may vary depending on how the sample was measured. ATAGO’s salt meter will not just estimate whether it is too salty or not, but rather numerically display the result as a salt concentration.

Accurate measurement with calibration function

Accurate measurement with calibration function

The majority of the simplified conventional salt meters do not have calibration function and cannot be calibrated even when measurement values are off. ATAGO’s salt meter can zero set to air and provide calibration service as the JCSS verified manufacturer.

High temperature soup can be measured accurately with drop style PAL-SALT

High temperature soup can be measured accurately with drop style PAL-SALT

High temperature and oil containing soup dishes such as miso soup, tsuyu for oden (soup sauce for Japanese one-pot dish consisting of several ingredients such as eggs, konjac and processed fishcakes), ramen soup, can be measured with stable readings. The sample temperature can be anywhere from 5 to 100 ℃ (41 to 212 ˚F) .

Solid samples such as ham, bacon, or himono (dried fish) can be measured

Solid samples such as ham, bacon, or himono (dried fish) can be measured

Solid samples such as ham, bacon, himono, potato chips can be measured by diluting cut or chopped small pieces with water. ATAGO’s salt meter can be used by those with high blood pressure or other lifestyle diseases that would like to record a daily salt consumption measurement.

Perfectly compact size with portability

Perfectly compact size with portability

A perfectly compact size to be used on a production floor. Its light weight allows to easily take measurement at home or even when dining out for personal health monitoring.

Renewal! New release of PAL-Fish Fillets

Renewal! New release of PAL-Fish Fillets

PAL-FM1 has been renewed and released as a new version, PAL-Fish Fillets - ideal for measuring both dried fish and raw fillets! It is now possible to measure closer to titration values and more precisely with a minimum error of 0.0%*!
In addition, by expanding the temperature compensation range to 5 - 40 ゚C, which is more in line with actual environmental site temperatures, measurements have become more stable. Insert the probe into the fillet and in just 3 seconds receive a value that is close to titration. PAL-Fish Fillets frees the user from the hassle and trouble of past methods!
*According to research. Results depend on the type and position of dried fish and raw fillets being measured.

Function and Design

step1

step3
Thin, drinkable liquids

Thin, drinkable liquids

Thinner or lower concentration liquids, such as soup or miso soup, can be measured by placing a few drops of the sample directly on the sensor.

Thick, syrupy or paste-like liquids

Thick, syrupy or paste-like liquids

Sauces, soup bases, seasonings, gravies and such need to be diluted to 10% for accurate measurement results. Anything that is highly concentrated (anything that measures above 6% Brix with a refractometer), must be diluted. The PAL-SALT and ES-421 measure the conductivity of electrolytes through electrical currents (conductivity). The thicker a solution is, the more closely the molecules are packed, and therefore, the less conductive. This makes the sample more difficult to measure. If not diluted, the measurement values may appear lower than the actual salt content.

Products with a salt content that exceeds the measurement range (above 10% salt)

Products with a salt content that exceeds the measurement range (above 10% salt)

Products that contain more than 10% salt, such as pickle brine, need to be diluted. For example, the 10 times dilution of 12% salt brine will measure 1.2%, and the 5 times dilution will measure 2.4%. Adjust the dilution factor so that the salinity falls within the measurement range.

Solid food

Solid food

Solid foods (ham, bacon, dried foods, and fish) need to be minced, ground, or crushed, diluted with water (1:10 dilution), and mixed thoroughly. As a general guideline, let sit for a few minutes (approx. 3 minutes) to allow the salt to leach out of the food. Depending on the qualities of the sample (whether or not the salt is easily drawn out into the water), the salt concentration of the food, the mincing or crushing method, or how well the sample is mixed with the water, the time needed for the salt to be drawn out into the water will vary. Set a soaking period that works for each product (that allows the salt to be thoroughly drawn out). Measure the salinity of the water and multiply the reading by 10. The PAL-SALT PROBE also has a probe sensor that can be inserted directly into the solid sample for measurement.

Oily / fatty food

Oily / fatty food

Foods containing oil or fats can also be measured. However, the measurement values of foods that have oil floating on their surface, such as Ramen soup (a Japanese noodle soup), may be unstable. If the readings fluctuate when measuring oily/fatty foods, try stirring the sample, and measure again for more stable readings. When measuring the salinity of oil-packed products, extract the sample from the oil and allow excess oil to drain. Mix 10g of sample with 90g of water to create a 10% dilution. Mix or shake very well and let settle. Residual oil should float to the top of the container. Take a sample from below the oil layer and place on the sensor. Multiply the displayed reading by 10 to obtain the salt concentration of the original sample.

QWhat can this instrument measure ?

AVarious types of food that contain salt – soups, sauces, condiments, dressings, fish, ham, bacon, deli meats, brine, cheese, butter, dairy, crackers, chips, and more.


QHow do I measure my sample ?

ADifferent types of sample require different preparation for measurement. Please refer to “Measurement Techniques.”


QCan I use tap water for dilutions ?

ADistilled water is the best, but tap water may also be used. Tap water may affect the readings slightly (approx. 0.01%). Do not use mineral water as it may affect the readings


QHow do I clean it ?

AThe unit is waterproof, so the entire body can be washed under running water. Use a mild cleanser to remove persistent residue, such as oil. Clean greasy residue with ethyl alcohol and rinse with water.


QThe readings are unstable.

AFor samples containing oils or fats, try stirring the sample after placing on the sensor, and measure. This will help stabilize readings.


QWhat’s the key for measuring cold or hot sample ?

AWe recommend leaving the sample on the sensor for 30 seconds before measuring. This will allow the sample to acclimate. Alternatively, take multiple readings until the readings stabilize.


QHow often does it need to be calibrated ?

AZero-set the instrument at the beginning of each day before taking any measurements. Clean the sample stage thoroughly and press ZERO with nothing on it (zero-set with air). For manufacturer calibration, please contact an official ATAGO service center.


QWhat should I do if the measurement values are irregular?

AApply water or ethyl alcohol on the sample stage and wipe it off with lint-free tissue paper. Repeat the process a few times if using water. If this does not resolve the issue, reference set with a 2.50% standard Sodium chloride (NaCl) solution..50%の食塩水で基準合わせを行ってください。


QHow should I store the unit ?

AIf the unit will not be used for an indeterminate amount of time, place the unit in the storage case that it came with.

Salt Meter [Product details]

Salt-meter PAL-SALT

PAL-SALT is widely used in various industries for food and industrial solutions. For food products, in addition to checking salt content, salt meter is used to make sure salt is properly added and not forgotten for such product as bread, rice balls and frozen. For industrial use, salt meter is widely used for salt resistance test for cars and such.
