Abbemat 200 Economy Line Refractometer – Anton Paar

abbemat_heavy_duty_line Refractometer Anton Paar Refractometer Product – The Refractometers of the Heavy Duty line are designed for measuring the refractive index in harsh environments and for special applications. To withstand rough conditions they have a hermetically sealed stainless steel casing and are controlled by an external PC. This can be placed away from the workbench in another part of the laboratory. The Abbemat can be placed on its side to prevent sedimentation and disturbance affecting the results.
All Abbemat Heavy Duty refractometers provide full compliance with 21 CFR Part 11, with user levels, audit trail, and forgery-proof data export. Anton Paar also provides a qualification documentation package (IQ/OQ/PQ).

Unique performance – reliable results within seconds

  • Abbemat refractometers of the Heavy Duty Line provide optimum stability and analytical performance
  • Due to highpower solid state thermostat measuring temperature is reached within seconds
  • Optimal sample temperature measurement by sensor positioning just below the prism face
  • Easy cleaning and no sample carry-over due to smooth junction between prism and sample mould
  • No moving parts – no drift, no maintenance requirements

Withstanding rough operating conditions – at no extra cost

  • In contrast to ordinary refractometers Abbemat refractometers are also well suited for lab environments with rough operating conditions
  • Robust stainless steel housing – resistant against acids, bases and solvents
  • Hermetically sealed – aggressive liquids, gases and dust cannot enter and harm the refractometer
  • No internal condensation problems in cold or humid environments

Versatile configurations – for the flexibility you need

  • Abbemat refractometers are available as high-precision (HP), wide-range (WR), high-temperature (HT) or multi-wavelength versions (MW)
  • The Abbemat refractometer and control unit configuration easily adapts to the specific requirements of your applications
  • The control unit can be separated in case of rough operating conditions
  • Samples containing particles or gas bubbles cause no interference problems when the refractometer is turned on its side
  • Abbemat refractometers can be combined with Anton Paar density meters, polarimeters and viscosity meters

User-friendly software – making your work easier

  • More than 70 scales to convert refractive index into concentrations, etc.
  • Formula parser allows the creation of customized scales

21 CFR part 11 and GMP/GLP compliance – for a regulated environment

  • Audit trail
  • User management with different access levels
  • Electronic signature
