Measure refractive index samples from 1.3250 to 1.7000
- Built in thermo module ensures precision accuracy and eliminates the need for a water bath circulator
Process control and quality assurance has never been made easier with this programmable automatic refractometer. Refractive index, Brix, and percent concentration can be all measured with precision accuracy. This unit is ideal for use in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic industries. Determine the refractive index of citrus, animal or vegetable oils, methylene chloride, polymers, and chemicals with the widest refractive index range of 1.3250 to 1.7000. Take precise Brix measurements of fruit and concentrated juices, canned syrups, liquid sugars and glucose with a Brix range of 0.00 to 95.0%. Three separate mode types provide user flexibility of taking measurements with or without automatic temperature compensation.
Measure your sample directly after it reaches the set target temperature in mode 1. Select mode 2 for measuring the refractive index and temperature at a fixed interval, displaying the estimated value at the set target temperature. In mode 3, measurements start immediately after the sample is placed on the prism and the start key is pressed – measurement start time can be manually delayed after pressing the start key.
This unit features built in peltier temperature control that eliminates the need for a water bath circulator. A conversion formula is automatically created if three points of a user scale corresponding to the refractive index are inputted. Program up to 30 different user scales. The LCD display with backlight provides mode, date, time, measurement, ambient and target temperature readings. Extended memory capability allows you to display the last 30 measurements. The rugged stainless steel sample well makes clean p easy. Print out measurement data or download information directly to your PC with RS-232 output capabilities.
