reflectance meter for sugar

Features of the Saccharoflex

  • Fully compliant with ICUMSA GS2-11 & GS2-13
  • Measures degree of whiteness of crystal sugar
  • Easy to calibrate and use
  • Use Brunswick or ceramic color standards
  • Measurements up to 19.99 without any adjustment
  • Power saver feature - for continuous operation
  • Ceramic and sugar standards to match

The saccharoflex is an electronic reflectance meter for the automatic color grading of white crystalline sugar in accordance with the recommendations of ICUMSA. The measurement is done by use of Taylor’s law and an integrated sphere. To decrease measurement instabilities caused by inhomogeneity of the sample (e.g. different grain size)a great sample surface was chosen.

The saccharoflex measures the reflectance factors at 495 nm and 620 nm and indicates the ratio in terms of color type numbers. . The measurement is taken over a large area relative to grain size in order to reduce errors due to variation in grain sizes. Only two standards of Braunschweig color type, preferably '0' and '6' are needed to calibrate the Saccharoflex

Only two standards of the Brunswick color type or ceramic standards, preferably 0 and 6 are necessary to calibrate the Saccharoflex 2000. Adjustment is carried out with the keyboard. The Saccharoflex 2000 makes measurements up to 19.99 indicating units without further adjustments.
    LCD display with 4-button keyboard makes the instrument easy to use and RS 232 serial interface can be used to output data to a printer.
