Concentrates of raw sugar, crystals and raw juices
Optical rotatory dispersion is the variation in the optical rotation of a substance in dependency of the wavelength of light. By using a polarimeter to measure the rotation, the observed rotation can be used to calculate the concentration of an optical active solution. This usage makes a polarimeter a tool of great importance to those dealing e.g. with raw sugar, crystal sugars or first expressed raw sugar juices. Optical rotary dispersion can be measured using the SCHMIDT + HAENSCH Polartronic H532 and VariPol.
