Anton Paar has developed an alcohol meter which measures distillates in all strengths with an accuracy of 0.1 % v/v. The portable Snap 50 can perform quality checks directly on-site, outside the laboratory in next to no time, independent of the ambient temperature.
Snap 50 is easy to carry, light, robust and speeds up and simplifies the dilution and check procedures in all distilleries.
Snap 50 checks the alcohol content in two-component mixtures of water and ethanol throughout the whole production process: from pure distillates, samples taken during dilution to drinkable strength or ready-to-drink spirits. The Snap 50 gives the user the required results only a few seconds after immersing the measuring tube in the distillate.
Sample temperatures from 0 °C to 40 °C are measured by Snap 50 and the alcohol content is automatically calculated and displayed at the required reference temperature of 20 °C (or 60 °F). You don’t have to wait long for the sample temperature to stabilize because the metal tube with the measuring cell remains in the distillate during the measurement.
The well-established oscillating U-tube principle is used to measure the density, which is the basis for the automatic calculation of the alcohol concentration.
Results are shown on a large digital display and extra calculations are no longer required.
