Digital Saccharimeters – The AUTOPOL IZ and IIZ Series
The IZ single wavelegth 589 nm saccharimeter and IIZ dual 589 nm and 880 nm wavelegth Saccharimeters from Rudolph Research Analytical provide features and accuracy that Sugar Technologists demand around the world.
Autopol IZ Saccharimeter – Perfect for 0.02º Z applications where budget is critical.
This instrument is popular for sugar applications that do not require ICUMSA measurement at the 880 nm wavelegth.
Autopol IIZ Dual Wavelength Saccharimeter – For Sugar Mills that want to measure according to the ICUMSA non-lead procedure.
A budget saving alternative for applications that do not require the accuracy of more expensive Rudolph Saccharimeter models.
Optional Purity software is available for use with a separate PC.
Utilizing the built-in temperature probe, temperature correction to 20ºC, 27.5ºC or other user defined temperature is performed easily and automatically. The probe can be inserted into all 14 style, 40T style, 41T style and 33 style measurement cells.
No matter which Autopol automatic Saccharimeter you choose, Rudolph uses the same high quality optics. While other manufacturers use Polaroid Plastic Dichroic Sheet Polarizers, Rudolph does not. Instead, Rudolph uses the same high quality Glan Thompson Calcite Polarizers in all its models.
Why are high quality polarizing prisms important? Because prisms are two of the most critical optical components in the Saccharimeter. Polaroid polarizers are made of a polymeric plastic where the molecules are stretches and oriented in a specific direction so as to linearly polarize light. These types of plastic sheet polarizers are very inexpensive ($50.00 USD) and are vulnerable to heat, warp over time, deterioriate from moisture, and also have greater light absorption than Calcite Polarizers. In many cases, the plastic polarizers must be replaced in 3 – 5 years. Glan Thompson Calcite Polarizers are comprised of a carbon crystalline structure similar to diamond and have excellent light transmission characteristics. The quality of these prisms is so good, Rudolph guarantees its prisms over the life of the Saccharimeter.
Large Range of Styles of Sample Cells for Manual, Pour-In and Automated Applications
Rudolph knows Sugar Technologists around the world demand 24 hour operation, 7 days a week for up to 9 months out of the year. They expect 0.02 °Z reproducibility and accuracy. Rudolph Research understands these demands and requirements, because Rudolph has been serving the sugar industry since 1940. Throughout those sixty plus years, Rudolph has dedicated itself to manufacturing quality instrumentation and providing superior technical and service support, both directly and through its worldwide dealer network. This dedication is consistent with Rudolph’s over 5,000 instruments installed worldwide, with many of those instruments still in operation after 25 years of service.
All Rudolph Instruments carry our exclusive 20 Commitment to service your instrument.
Rudolph Research Analytical offers a comprehensive range of Preventive Maintenance and Service Programs. Rudolph has demonstrated a commitment to its customers by keeping installed instruments operational, not only for 20 years, but in some cases for over 40 years. This long-term commitment to keeping our instruments running makes the cost of ownership, over the life of a Rudolph Instrument, one of the lowest in the laboratory market segment. At the date this document was published, there is no other laboratory instrument manufacturer guaranteeing service and technical support for 20 years. View the entire 20 Service Guarantee.
