The two standard tips available are the A flat tip and the B pointed tip. Both the flat and pointed tips are made to maximize the total surface area of the tip to ensure good contact area with the electrolyte. Mainly a user preference, there is no performance difference between the two types of tip.
- The A flat tip may be more versatile, as a flat surface can be useful on a variety of electrolytes, such as soils, liquids and concrete.
- The B pointed tip has a cone shape which can be easily buried in soils to ensure good contact with the electrolyte.
While the body of the half cell is printed with the tip type, all parts are interchangeable and an A or B tip can be put on any of the models 6 and 8 reference electrodes.
Model 6 vs. Model 8
Tinker & Rasor offers the model 6-A, 6-B and the model 8-A and 8-B. The difference is in the length of the half cell only. The overall length of the 6 model is 6 inches and the 8 Model is 8 inches. The model 8 half cells contain more copper rod, more copper sulfate crystals and more water due to the larger volume of the tube.
