Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Saccharimeter
Make                                   : Rudolph Research Analytical, USA
Model                                  : AUTOPOL 880
Specification   :Estimation of sucrose /Sugars in percentage by saccharimeter in plant samples using standard sucrose

Click to ViewEstimation of sucrose /Sugars in percentage by saccharimeter in plant samples using standard sucrose. Automatic Digital Saccharimeter provides 0.01°Z repeatability and accuracy, time proven measurement technology and the critical features necessary for sugar analysis. Using 26% sucrose solution the sucrose concentration and 0 Z is calibrated in the instrument

  Working Principles
Click to ViewSaccharimeter measures sucrose in percent. For the measurement the instrument works on the basis of refractive index. There are different analytical techniques for the determination of Sucrose. It brings increased precision, accuracy, speed of analysis and simple operation. The built in Refractive index correlation converts the standard sucrose and calibrates sucrose in the sample. The instrument is calibrated with the analysis of std sucrose solution. Thus the instrument ensures maximum reliability of the results. This method finds greatest utility in finding out percentages of sucrose in plant samples, fruits, beverages, sugarcane juice and sweet sorghum stalk juice.
