This is Rudolph’s latest and most advanced model. It was developed and tested in conjunction with labs testing pharmaceutical grade sugars. These labs require precise temperature control yet still want flow through cell type operation. For sugar trade labs and contract work that demands the best and most advanced saccharimeter in the world.
This option is only suitable for air conditioned modern laboratories.
The 880T saccharimeter is a dual wavelength microprocessor based saccharimeter capable of measuring at both 589 nm and 880 nm. The 880 nm ICUMSA Approved near infrared wavelength allows measurement of dark sugar factory juices, while the AUTOPOL Automatic Saccharimeter Purity Mode allows simultaneous measurement and display of PURITY, BRIX and POL.
The most important feature of the AUTOPOL® saccharimeter models IIZ, 88o, 880T, and 880 PLUS are their ability to measure at two wavelengths: 589 nm and 880 nm (NIR). Select 589 nm for conventional analysis using chemicals or lead clarifiers, or select 880 nm for polarimetric sugar measurements in the near infrared (NIR). 880 nm is above the absorption level of most dark sugar factory solutions allowing measurement of filtered but non-lead clarified juices. The dark sample measurement bar gets darker in proportion to the darkness of the sample being measured. When the bar is completely dark the instrument has reached its measurement limit. The 880T / 4W AUTOPOL® saccharimeter offers 2 additional wavelengths to further expand measurement options.
Patented TempTrol™ Technology Eliminates the Need for a Water Bath. Here is How the TempTrol™ System Works:
The 880T saccharimeter offers Rudolph’s exclusive TempTrol™ System which allows push-button temperature control of your TempTrol™ 100mm cell, 200mm cell or Quartz Control Plate. Set the temperature, push “measure” and walk away. The AUTOPOL V will heat or cool to a predefined temperature and then provide you with the result, all in one easy step.
The TempTrol™ System will accurately control your sample temperature to within ±0.2°C. This is particularly important for laboratory work when measuring pharmaceutical grade sugars.
Whether your sugar analysis requires a 25mm, 50mm, 100 mm or 200 mm cell, whether you use 1/2 normal (13g/100ml), 1/4 normal (6.5g/100ml) or full weight sugar solutions, the AUTOPOL® 880 and 880T saccharimeters provide the correct multiplier to display the reading as if the sample were prepared as a 1 normal solution in a 200 mm optical path-length cell.
Calibrating an AUTOPOL® saccharimeter is quick and simple. First, place a Rudolph Quartz Control Plate calibration standard on the optical rails and enter the Quartz Plate value in the appropriate window. Second, enter the temperature to correct the measurement to either the ICUMSA standard temperature of 20°C or the Tropical reference temperature of 27.5°C. Third, press 2 buttons and calibration is complete. (See Technical Bulletin 913 for more details on Rudolph Calibration Standards)
