Bellingham + Stanley ADS400 Series Saccharimeters

ADS400 Series saccharimeters are ideal standalone instruments measuring the optical rotation of sugar cane or beet during payment, milling or refining processes or when connected to an RFM refractometer, such as the RFM700-M or RFM300-T, as part of a sugar purity system. Thanks to an intelligent setup wizard, easy-to-use keypad with colourful HD display and intuitive software, operating the ADS400 Series is quick and simple. RFID login allows several levels of access, as well as offering an audit trail, meaning settings can be hidden away so users can only take readings; ideal for allowing use of the instrument no matter what level of training.

Sample is applied using standard polarimeter tubes for the lab with funnel flow through versions available for rapid sample handling in the Tare House. Sodium (589nm) and NIR (850nm) single wavelength versions are available, the latter facilitating measurement of dark samples without the need for lead based clarifiers.
