  • Description

    These ADS400 Series Saccharimeters measure in either the Sodium (589nm) wavelength at 100 mm and 200 tube lengths, or in NIR (Near Infrared, typically used for dark sugars) at 100 mm and 200 mm tube lengths. They are available with Bellingham + Stanley’s innovative XPC Peltier Temperature Control or ATC models. 

      • ATC or Patented XPC Peltier 
      • Sodium or NIR wavelength models
      • High definition 4“ full colour display 
      • Continuous or single shot readings 

    ADS400 Series Saccharimeters can be purchased with or without XPC Technology – Xylem’s patented Peltier temperature control system. If you are looking for a Saccharimeter with ATC instead of inbuilt XPC Temperature Control then please take a look at these models for Funnel Flow without Temperature Control, or for standard laboratory saccharimeters for non-flow through, click here.

    The ADS400 Series Saccharimeters are designed to operate in isolation but work best when connected to an RFM Refractometer to create a complete Purity system that facilitates accurate purity readings. 

    The ADS400 Series is built using a corrosion-free polyurethane foam case – sealed to prevent moisture and dust ingress to its optics. Low power consumption and low maintenance is achieved using an LED light source which offers light for the length of the product lifetime. 

    The external power unit keeps internal temperatures minimal and in combination with the sealed casing makes the ADS400 Series Saccharimeter a great choice for working in high humidity environments. 

    Thanks to its intelligent setup wizard, easy-to-use keypad with colourful HD display and intuitive software, operating the ADS400 Series is quick and simple. RFID login allows several levels of access, as well as offering an audit trail, meaning settings can be hidden away so users can only take readings; ideal for allowing use of the instrument no matter what level of training. 

    A METHODS system allows for quick configuration, with reading type (continuous or single-shot) and limit checking against pre-defined product specifications made simple. Configurable Purity equations are also accessible through the easy-to-use software using the keypad.  

    The ADS400 Series Saccharimeter is available in predefined packages to make choosing the right system as simple as possible. All packages are supplied with appropriate cell, lid, onboard purity, LIMS logger PC software, RFID tags & certificate of conformity.
