Refractometer series for demanding applications

Feb 27 2023

For over a century, Xylem’s Bellingham + Stanley has been manufacturing refractometers for use within the food, beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Its premier model, the RFM970-T refractometer, has already proven itself within demanding applications with users already benefiting from the instrument’s wide scale range (1.30-1.70 RI), high precision (up to 6 decimals RI), Peltier temperature control and its compliance with FDA Regulation 21 CFR Part 11.

Newly added features include Network User Authentication that synchronises passwords from the user’s company server that eliminate the need for duplicate login control within the instrument itself. Additionally, FTP Instrument Sync - CLI Software further secures laboratory data by making use of Windows® Task Scheduler to automatically copy or move encrypted files from the refractometer to a local PC or company server at a predetermined time. 

Customisation of the instrument’s touchscreen display is possible. Users may install and assign iconography to the instrument’s Method display to make selection easier.  The boot-up splash screen and screensaver can also be personalised to reflect the environment in which the instruments operates; perhaps with a company logo, local help contact information or a GLP informational notice.  Report headers may also be customised with a company logo and site addresses so that they conform to branding guidelines and provide for a better audit trail.

Importantly, the Review & Approve electronic signature process can even be achieved locally or remotely, no matter where in the world.  Encrypted Print to Secure PDF, .csv and .XML outputs makes data integration to LIMS simple, secure and auditable.

These new features, along with others such as synchronised server clock, Mean Method for batch analysis, Method limit check and maintenance prompts are not only available in any of the RFM-T series refractometers but are common to a refined selection instruments such as the high precision ADP600 Series of multiple wavelength, Peltier controlled polarimeters.
