  1. Salinometer

    A salinometer is a device designed to measure the salinity, or dissolved salt content, of a solution. Since the salinity affect both the electrical conductivity and the specific gravity of a solution, a salinometer often consist of an ec meter or hydrometer and some means of converting those readings to a salinity reading. A salinometer may be calibrated in either micromhos, a unit of electrical conductivity, or else directly calibrated for salt in 'grains per gallon'. A typical reading on-board ship would be 2 micromhos or 0.05 grains per gallon. A reading of twice this may trigger a warning light or alarm.
