ATR-P Touch

PDF data sheet
  • High-performance refractometer
  • Rugged measuring head (IP65)
  • Single or flow through measurements
  • For permanent use in production laboratories
  • Combination with polarimeter (Purity Analyser)

The critical angle refractometer ATR-P is especially designed for applications in the sugar industry. Complete system consists of the ATR-P measuring head and the “L-Controller” electronic unit. As an alternative to the “L-Controller” electronic unit, the ATR-P measuring head can be connected to a PC or laptop. In the minimal version configuration and calibration are performed using a supplied free-software. Much more comfortable and  is the PC software “Aquisys Basic”.

Main Features:

  • High-performance robust Refractometer for the determination of mixing ratios (mass percent)
  • Quality and quantity control of liquids, especially for sucrose solutions
  • Highly accurate and reproducible measuring results in no time at all
  • Electronic unit separated from measuring head
  • Very robust and waterproof measuring head made from stainless steel
  • Operating mode alternatively in horizontal or vertical position
  • Single or flow-through measurement
  • Various sample room covers / flow through doors optionally available
  • Fast and reliable control of sample temperature by built-in solid state Peltier-thermostat
  • Temperature correction of samples via external water bath – rapid temperature correction even larger sample volumes
  • Temperature compensation of Brix scale
  • Easy to calibrate with sucrose solutions
  • Measuring head can be connected to the PC and operated as stand-alone device
  • Adopted user friendly Operation System displayed by a high resolution 7″ TFT Touchscreen
  • Modern and robust design for rough environments
  • Documentation according to GLP/GMP
  • Energy saving LED light source
