Versatile Density Meter and Refractometer Instrument Combinations from Rudolph Research Analytical.
Combined Density – Refractive Index instruments
Many users need to measure both refractive index and density and feel that a combined system will be a good alternative. The advantages of such a system are many;
Since parts are shared the total cost of the system may be less.
There may be less operator time needed to load and clean the system.
Many laboratories combine the density and refractive index results and use them to calculate a third parameter. Having both results exported into the same file makes the calculations easier.
The instrument combination systems offered by Rudolph are as follows;
Basic – Density Meter and Refractometer Optics Module Box
Description: This system is the optic module from a Rudolph Refractometer attached to a Rudolph Density Meter. The user loads and cleans each measurement system exactly the same way they do with two separate instruments.
Who should consider this system?
A smaller laboratory that does not have many samples. The ability to share a common screen means a combined system like this has a significantly lower cost than two separate instruments.
A laboratory that wants to combine density results with refractive index results and calculate a third parameter from them.
Basic Density Meter and Refractometer Optics Module Box with flow through sample injection.
This system is similar to the one above but uses the DP (Dual Purpose) optics module. Primarily offered as a bridge between manual and automatic sample loading. Users can load samples in fully manual mode or via a Syringe.
