Anton Paar Applications
Polarimetric Determination of Lactose Content in High Lactose Dairy Products
The quality of milk and milk powders depends, among others, on the lactose content. The lactose needs to be extracted from dairy products having high lactose content (e.g. milk and milk powders) before using the polarimeter for concentration determination.
Determination of Honey Purity and Quality by Polarimetry
Honey processing industries use polarimeters to distinguish between blossom and honeydew honeys due to opposed optical rotations. The specific rotation in honey is a quality parameter according to several international standards.
Apparent Purity of Sucrose and Technical Sugar Solutions
Analytical process control is done at all stages of sugar production. According to ICUMSA standards, the MCP Sucromat saccharimeter together with the Abbemat refractometer analyzes sugar samples on Pol, Brix and Apparent Purity.
Determination of Moisture in Honey by Refractive Index
The moisture content of honey is an important quality criterion as it determines the honey’s ability to remain stable and to resist spoilage by yeast fermentation.
Polarimeters for Processing Applications
The Propol process polarimeter is ideal for process applications on chiral compounds such as sugars and pharmaceuticals. It is designed to be placed inline or in bypass allowing continuous measurements.
Glycerol is used in various industries as a moisturizer, a thickener, as antifreeze or as a precursor for explosives. Its quality as well as its concentration in solution can be determined by using refractometry.
Improve Digestion Quality and Save Money – Microwave Digestion rules out Open Digestion
Reliable elemental analysis results need robust sample preparation to destroy sample matrices or to separate matrix from analytes. The sample preparation step is by far the most error-prone and critical step of the analytical procedure.
Intelligent Quartz Control Plates for Polarimetric Calibration and Adjustment
Modern polarimeters are calibrated or adjusted with intelligent quartz control plates that do not require manual data entry in order to ensure data traceability.
