Compact Inline Process Refractometer
The iPR-C2 is an ideal all-round instrument for measuring liquid concentration in a wide range of industrial applications. This compact inline process refractometer performs real time measurements under various conditions for quality control in your production process. Automatic temperature compensation for Brix scale is standard; other scales are programmable.
NEW – Now with extended measuring range!
The iPR Compact² is a compact inline refractometer with extremely short response time for continuous measurement and real-time process control with analog measured value output. It is characterized by its minimal size and weight and has an excellent price-performance ratio.
The iPR Compact² allows inline, real-time refractive index measurement, Brix, or concentration to monitor and control the concentration of substances in solution or liquid mixtures in the process. The compact stainless steel measuring head with YAG prism is equipped with an integrated electronic for connection to a PC or control room.
Available in two versions (aluminum and stainless steel) with different process temperatures ranges.
- Mixing ratio determination
- Quality and concentration control of dissolved solids
- Detection of product transitions
- Determination of the concentration and degree of contamination of cooling lubricants and cleaning solutions
