Dilution and Cell Length Correction
Whether your sugar analysis requires a 25mm, 50mm, 100 mm or 200 mm cell, whether you use 1/2 normal (13g/100ml), 1/4 normal (6.5g/100ml) or full weight sugar solutions, the AUTOPOL® 589, 880, 880T, and 880 PLUS saccharimeters provide the correct multiplier to display the reading as if the sample were prepared as a 1 normal solution in a 200 mm optical pathlength cell.
Automatic Saccharimeter Calibration
Calibrating the AUTOPOL® is quick and simple. First, place a Rudolph Quartz Control Plate calibration standard on the optical rails and enter the Quartz Plate value in the appropriate window. Second, enter the temperature to correct the measurement to either the ICUMSA standard temperature of 20°C or the Tropical reference temperature of 27.5°C. Third, press 2 buttons and calibration is complete. (See Technical Bulletin 913 for more details on Rudolph Calibration Standards)
Automatic Temperature Correction
All AUTOPOL® Digital Saccharimeter models have a temperature probe in the measurement compartment. The probe can be inserted into all 14 style, 40T style, 41T style and 33 style measurement cells
