Accurate, highly efficient spectrophotometers for optically clear samples that meet the demand for consistent and reliable color data for a wide range of samples. The long path-length cell chamber also allows the measurement of extremely unsaturated, light samples and also color scales which are defined with long path lengths including the Lovibond RYBN and AOCS Tintometer™ color. The instruments remove all subjectivity involved in color grading, supplying unbiased readings that are unaffected by operator or environment.

  • Color Scales: Lovibond RYBN, ICUMSA (420 and 560nm), CIE Values, Spectral Data
  • High-precision spectrophotometer for objective measurement in accordance with the ICUMSA and Lovibond color scales
  • ICUMSA Color and Lovibond Color are popular quantitative methods that have gained widespread international acceptance for color measurement of sugar solutions and syrups
  • Automatically measures ICUMSA Color at 420nm, 560nm or 720nm and at a known Brix value; also expresses color in terms of the Red, Yellow, Blue and Neutral units that make up the Lovibond Color scale
  • Results can also be displayed in terms of CIE values and spectral data
  • Samples are measured in a 100mm cell but the PFX-880/S automatically reports ICUMSA Color at a path length that satisfies the 20-80% transmittance criteria stated in the ICUMSA method, with 100mm being the preferred choice
  • Optional factory-fitted integrated heater unit available
