K-Patents Process Refractometers are commonly used to determine the concentration of a dissolved solids by making an optical measurement of a solution’s Refractive Index.
This measurement has been an important element in the processing industries like the chemical and refining, pulp and paper, food, sugar and pharmaceutical industries for more than a century.
The performance of all types of refining, manufacturing and quality control operations can be dramatically improved with the K-Patents technology.
For instance, the in-line concentration measurement can be used as a real-time predictive tool for the final concentration. A quick and accurate response is needed to optimize production. Cost reduction is possible by reducing the variation of mean average of the product concentration. The cost saving is related to the value of the component being measured.
If your medium or process is not listed in the Index, it does not necessarily mean that it could not be measured with a refractometer. There are thousands of unidentified potential applications where the K-Patens refractometer can be used. Please, fill in the Application Evaluation Sheet (AES) and send it to your representative or directly to K-Patents.
