With PAL-BX/ACID, the integral parameters of fruit, sugar (Brix) and acidity can be measured with one device. It measures sugar level (Brix) through a refractometry method using light refraction. Also, it measures acidity level through electroconductivity method using electrical current.
Besides sugar level or sweetness, the acidity or tartness is another important element that influences the taste of fruit. By simply pressing a button, it promptly displays the indispensable sugar acid ratio of fruit and vegetables.
To measure acidity, dilute sample, place it on the sample stage and press the START button. Anyone can easily take these measurements.
Conventional acid level measurement such as the acid-base titration method requires large amounts of costly reagent and tedious disposal procedures. ATAGO Brix-Acidity Meters require absolutely no reagent at all!
The acid-base titration method derives the acid content as phenolphthalein changes color when the solution is alkalized, but it is difficult to determine the equivalence point. With ATAGO Brix-Acidity Meters, anyone can easily see the results with a digital readout.
Transportable and compact size. It is lightweight and can be easily carried by anyone.
We have heard customers tell us how they broke the glassware required for the titration method. Have peace of mind and be worry free of damage with ATAGO Brix-Acidity Meters.
