ATR-SW, automatic microprocessor controlled critical angle refractometer
This SCHMIDT+HAENSCH automatic
microprocessor controlled critical angle refractometer is designed to
measure the refractive index of liquid media independent of opacity,
viscosity and colour. It consists of separate electronic and measuring
devices to enable single and continuous measurements. Convincing design
of device from stainless steel allows horizontal and vertical
application of the sample room with a thermostatable sapphire prism.
The prism is illuminated by a 589 nm LED and the angle of total
reflection is detected by a diode array which guarantees high
resolution and stability. The ATR-SW enables to complete measurements
in a quick and easy way by using splash proofed touch-in panel. It's
new housing for the electronic offers more space for a bigger LCD
display and an alphanumeric foil keypad. Batch numbers can be entered
directly and also simple forms can be created and printed out. The
scale key offers two scales; refractive index and %Brix temperature
corrected within +10 to +50 °C range.
Different sample room doors with and without water circulation
facilities for manual or automatic sample changing complete the
