We are excited to show our unique, new Sanitary Refractometer PR-43-A that brings improved levels of performance and a choice of user interfaces fitting best for various needs of applications. It is 3-A Sanitary Standard and EHEDG Type EL Class I certified.

K-Patents® Sanitary refractometer PR-43-A

The new K-Patents® Sanitary refractometer PR-43-A system consists of a compact or probe refractometer and a graphical user interface. The refractometer is a stand-alone device capable of operating independently. It has a measurement range of 0 to 100 Brix and provides an Ethernet or 4–20 mA output signal proportional to the temperature-compensated Brix value for real-time process control. Different user interface options range from a rugged, multichannel, industrial computer to a compact light-weight and a web-based version, and allow the user to select the most preferred way to access and use the refractometer measurement and diagnostics data.

The PR-43-A emphasizes on the ongoing shift toward the use of Ethernet, and the concept of software Apps that add significant new possibilities to combine, refine and use measurement data in various industrial control and automation applications. The PR-43-A Refractometer has a built-in web server with an instrument homepage for remote monitoring and access to the refractometer.

Full measurement range Refractive Index (nD) 1.3200 – 1.5300 (corresponds to 0-100 Brix). Withstands CIP and SIP processes. Completely digital system: particles and bubbles do not affect operation or accuracy. Patented CORE-optics: no drift, no re-calibration, no mechanical adjustments. 3-A Sanitary Standard and EHEDG Type EL Class I certified.
