Using a conductivity method of testing, the ATAGO Digital Salt-Meter is used for measuring the level of salinity in a solution of soluble materials.

The PAL-SALT Pocket Salt Meter is versatile with a wide range of 0.00-10.00%. The resolution is 0.01% up to 2.99% concentration. It is ATAGO’s first salt meter to come with the offset feature*.
*Offset feature use examples

#1. Program a dilution factor to automatically display the salt concentration of the original sample.
#2. Program a conversion factor to align the readings with titration methods.


3 easy steps


  • Apply 2-3 drops onto the sensor section.
  • Start
    Press the START key.
  • Measurement value is displayed in 3 seconds.

Why measure salt content?

Adding salt is one of the most critical processes in food manufacturing as it has a significant effect on the color, taste, and texture of food.

ATAGO salt meters are ideal for quick and easy salinity checks on the production floor.

Recently, in addition to use in the production are, many companies are validating our salt meters as the preferred method in lab setting as well. Food scientists are choosing to limit the use of precipitation titration with harmful sliver nitrate (Mohr's method).

Because ATAGO salt meters are sage, fast, and simple.

Due to the difference in measurement principles, reading from the conductivity salt meters may not match up exactly with the reading by titration for certain samples. However, by creating a conversion table between the two testing methods, correlation between the set of results can be seen.

Unlike titration, no expensive and harmful chemical is involved in the measurement process.

ATAGO delivers the revolutionary salinity measurement solution that is both eco-friendly and cost-effective.

  • Carriage Insurance Paid (CIP/CIF): Carriage Insurance Paid to a named overseas port of disembarkation (i.e. import). The seller quotes a price for the goods, including insurance, plus all transportation and miscellaneous charges to the point of disembarkation from the vessel.
  • Carriage Paid To (CPT/C&F): Carriage Paid To is the named overseas port of disembarkation (i.e. import). The seller quotes a price for the goods that includes the cost of transportation to the named point of import. The cost of insurance is left to the buyer's account.
  • Ex Works (EXW): The price quoted applies only at the point of origin and the seller agrees to place the goods at the disposal of the buyer at a specific place on the date or within the period fixed. All other charges are to the account of the buyer.
