MCP 5300/5500 Sucromat

MCP 5300/5500 Sucromat is an automatic saccharimeter for the highly accurate analysis of products in the sugar industry. The values are given in °Z (International Sugar Scale). Using the optional NIR wavelength at 880 nm enables the analysis of strongly colored filtrates which cannot be measured at 589 nm. The modular design allows customer-specific configurations and future upgrades. Over 30 years of experience and the highest quality in development, production, and customer support have made Anton Paar saccharimeters the standard for sugar analysis.
