Model Fx

Benchtop spectrophotometer optimised for analysis of edible oils Add to quotation cart

Part Number 169200

Highlights

  • Guaranteed site-to-site comparability with accurate and precise spectrophotometry 
  • Avoid inconsistent readings with controlled sample temperature 
  • Ensure measurement consistency with easy to clean, removable sample chamber 
  • Save benchtop space in your QC laboratory with a smaller instrument footprint
The Lovibond® Model Fx solves the temperature problems associated with consistently measuring the colour of edible oils and addresses the need for quickly delivering accurate results. Misreading from crystallisation can be eliminated with its ability to keep the oil at a constant temperature and report the temperature of the sample.

Applications

  • Edible Oils and Fats

Guaranteed Temperature Consistency 

The Lovibond® Model Fx solves the temperature problems associated with consistently measuring the colour of edible oils and addresses the need for quickly delivering accurate results. If samples are not properly prepared before measurement, turbidity caused by the crystallisation of the samples will lead to inconsistent readings. The integrated sample cell heater ensures consistent and uniform temperature throughout the sample resulting inaccurate measurements. 

Optimised for Production Environment 

Reliable and repeatable test results are key to ensuring final product quality and minimise production costs. Speed of analysis is vital for efficient process control. The simplicity of operation helps reduce errors and increase productivity. The instrument’s aluminium housing is chemical resistant and intended to withstand the hazards of the production environment. 

Save Costs, Misinterpretation and Potential Disputes 

Suppliers and buyers need a common language to communicate and determine product quality. The Lovibond® Model Fx automatically reports key measurements to ensure that data is collected consistently and is reproducible by different users or across multiple sites.  Should disagreement occur between supplier and customer, this additional information can help resolve any dispute, saving time and costs. 

Ensures Compliance to Standards 

The Lovibond® Model Fx measures colour according to the Lovibond® RYBN, Lovibond® RY, Lovibond® RY10:1, AOCS Tintometer® RY, Chlorophyll & Beta-Carotene scales which are commonly used in the Edible Oil Industry. The accuracy, repeatability and reproducibility of data provided by the instrument allow for tighter colour specifications and greater colour consistency, giving companies the confidence needed to make important decisions regarding high-value commodities and refining operations.
