Positech Salt TestPaul N. Gardner USA has introduced a new offering that measures the concentration of soluble salts on metal surfaces. The Positector SST Soluble Salt Tester measures the concentration of soluble salts (salt contamination) on metal surfaces in accordance with ISO 8502-6, 8502-9. The gage also features an onscreen interface that guides users through the Bresle test method. The automatic storage of a background (blank) measurement comes in handy when performing multiple tests. The unit displays test duration, sample temperature, conductivity (µS/cm) and surface density (mg/m2 or µg/cm2).


  • Solvent, acid, oil, water and dust resistant - weatherproof
  • Shock-absorbing, protective rubber holster with belt clip
  • Two-year warranty on gage body and probe


  • Long Form Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST included
  • Certified conductivity standard (calibration solution) to verify probe accuracy, Certificate included
  • Automatic temperature normalization and sample temperature reporting
  • Conforms to national and international standards including ISO, NACE, SSPC, IMO and US Navy


  • PosiTector body accepts all PosiTector SST, 6000 III, 200, RTR, SPG, DPM, SHD and UTG probes easily converting from a soluble salt tester to a coating thickness gage, surface profile gage, dew point meter, Shore hardness durometer or ultrasonic wall thickness gage.
