ATAGO has developed the RX-5000 digital refractometer, available from John Morris Scientific , for rapid precision measurements of refractive index, Brix, concentration or custom user scales in beverages, sugar liquids, and chemical or industrial solutions.
The RX-5000 has an in-built peltier module for rapid and precise adjustment of sample temperature. This allows automatic measurements at the target temperature within 60 seconds (maximum waiting time to reach a targeted temperature) without the need for an external heating or cooling bath.
The RX-5000 offers extreme accuracy - Brix ±0.03% and refractive index ±0.00004.
An innovative LCD display also allows for a simple top-and-bottom limit bar for use by non-laboratory personnel in production environments.
The RX-5000 is particularly suited to unusual applications with the ability to program 30 individual user scales in custom user units. A user-scale is easy-to-program; all that is needed is three measurement points which correspond to relative refractive indexes.
The RX-5000 has a 30 test memory and can be used in conjunction with the DP-62 digital printer.
