Investigation of the fabrication parameters of thick film oxide-PVC pH electrodes using experimental designs
This paper describes a study into the development of an optimum fabrication process for the batch production of thick film titanium oxide-PVC pH electrodes. Multi-factorial experimental plans are used to explore the effect of fabrication parameters on the average sensitivity of sensors and their batch variability. Analysis of the results indicates that a number of the factors have a small effect on the sensitivity.
Factors of particular importance are identified and TiO2 in a PVC binder is examined in detail. The optimal values for these fabrication values are identified and examined. Mechanisms for the experimentally observed sub-Nernstian responses and immersion-time variations in sensor behaviour are discussed.

Abstract

This paper describes a study into the development of an optimum fabrication process for the batch production of thick film titanium oxide-PVC pH electrodes. Multi-factorial experimental plans are used to explore the effect of fabrication parameters on the average sensitivity of sensors and their batch variability. Analysis of the results indicates that a number of the factors have a small effect on the sensitivity.
Factors of particular importance are identified and TiO2 in a PVC binder is examined in detail. The optimal values for these fabrication values are identified and examined. Mechanisms for the experimentally observed sub-Nernstian responses and immersion-time variations in sensor behaviour are discussed.
