Quick and accurate real time measuring results

MicroPolar Brix meter provides fast and precise measuring results. With several thousand installations in many different countries, this microwave analyser has proven to work accurately and reliably. The Brix measurement system is available with different types of sensors for installation on pipelines or vessels. Typical applications in the sugar cane and sugar beet industry include the measuring of dry substance of thick and thin juice, concentration of milk of lime, and brix value during crystallization (continuous or batch-type vacuum pan).

Automatic on-site calibration

One of the greatest benefits of the MicroPolar Brix is that the calibration is done directly on the evaluation unit. The system includes a multi-language user interface and a sample taking feature that enable the user to enter laboratory values easily and quickly. What's more, the calibration curve is calculated automatically, saving you time and improving accuracy. The Brix meter contains a freely accessible foil keypad, an alphanumeric keyboard and 4 soft keys. Data protection is ensured through free password selection. An integrated reference line makes the Brix measurement independent from environmental influences of any kind.
