Salinometer

 

an instrument for determining the salt content in water by measuring electrical conductivity through the methods of conductometric analysis. In energetics, salinometers are used to determine salt content in feedwater and boiler water, as well as in the steam condensate. On ships, salinometers are used to measure the salinity of seawater.
