Density meters for semi-automatic sample supply
High efficiency and special suitability for hazardous substances
In case of low-viscous to slightly viscous samples, it is possible to perform a semi-automatic sample supply and cleaning of the U-tube oscillator using a peristaltic pump. This means higher efficiency and more safety if aggressive or harmful substances are analysed. It also improves the reproducibilityof the measurement results.
- Drying unit and peristaltic pump with high chemical resistance
- Intuitive operation via touch-screen display
- Easy, menu-driven adjustment
- Pre-defined scales such as density, relative density, brix, alcohol and sulfuric acid concentration
- Compliance with GMP/GLP, 21 CFR Part 11, pharmacopoeias (USP, BP, JP, Ph. Eur.), FDA, ISO, HACCP, OIML, ASTM, ICUMSA, NIST
A comprehensive quality assurance covering the entire production
process is a must in any industrial sector. Density measurements are
frequently used for this purpose, especially in the pharmaceutical,
chemical, petrochemical as well as the food and beverage industry.
They allow the manufacturer to analyse raw materials, semi-finished
and finished products as well as the manufacturing steps in terms of a
number of factors.
Density can be used to identify substances, to determine their quality
or purity and to measure their concentration in binary or quasi-binary
mixtures. Substance conversions and reaction dynamics can also be
inferred from it. In combination with other methods such as
refractometry that measures the refractive index of substances, the
density measurement allows you to make precise statements about
the quality of each step of the production process.
Density meters based on the oscillating U-tube method are
characterized by high ease of use and are therefore used in particular
for continuous density measurement and for rapid routine
measurements with larger numbers of samples in laboratories.
More information about typical applications of density meters can be
found in our campus article about density meters Fields of application.
