RE: The tariff classification of water testing meters from the United Kingdom.

Dear Mr. Slagle:

In your letter dated May 23, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of pHOX Systems, Inc..

The meters test and record the quality of water for municipal water departments by means of probes which are inserted into the water to be tested. Model 62 measures the dissolved oxygen in water. This portable model is battery powered. Model 45 measures the pH of water. Model 55 measures the conductivity of water. Model 65 measures the dissolved oxygen in water. Model 1800 measures selected ions in water. Typical ions are ammonia, nitrate or fluoride. Models 45, 55, 65 and 1800 are not portable. These four models are all AC powered.

The applicable subheading for Models 62 and 65 will be 9027.10.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for electrical gas or smoke analysis apparatus. The rate of duty will be 4.9 percent ad valorem. The applicable subheading for Models 45, 55 and 1800 will be 9027.80.4060, HTS, which provides for other electrical physical analysis instruments and apparatus. The rate of duty will be 4.9 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
