Refractometers & Polarimeters

Refractometers and Polarimeters

Laboratory Refractometers: For precise measurement of concentration. Our expertise in optical engineering, electronics and software design has enabled us to create instruments that are used extensively throughout the world's food, drinks, pharmaceutical, chemical and petroleum industries.

Handheld Refractometers: The use of a hand refractometer facilitates convenient and rapid measurement of concentration in a number of liquid and semi-solid samples. Bellingham + Stanley offers a complete choice of hand held refractometers starting with the E-line economy range of optical to the OPTi digital models that provide the most accurate performance in its class.

Polarimeters: Bellingham + Stanley manufactures high quality general purpose polarimeters for use in a variety of applications, along with a range of sample tubes and quartz control plates for instrument validation.

OPTi Digital Range – Life Science

Bellingham + Stanley OPTi Digital Range Refractometer – Life Science

Refractometers play small but vital role within the life science sector for both human and veterinary use. Whether the need is to control the sugar content of sports drinks prior to consumption or to track hydration levels of our athletes taking part in a sporting event, the duo scale OPTi-Sport is the right for the job. Similarly in the veterinary field, the OPTi-Vet is used to ascertain sugar levels of animal urine, large and small, as part of a diagnostic procedure.

E-Line ATC Economy Refractometers

Bellingham + Stanley E-Line ATC Economy Refractometers

E-line ATC: The low cost models within the E-line ATC range of hand held refractometers are specifically suited for light industrial use within small to medium sized businesses handling fruit, beverages, confectionery, jam and other sugar based products as well as for calculating concentration or blend ratios of heat transfer fluids like glycol, antifreeze, cutting fluids and quenchants.

E-Line 80 Refractometer

Bellingham + Stanley E-Line 80 Refractometer

The E-Line 80 is a dual scale Brix refractometer ideal for use in the food industry and other applications requiring concentration measurements over a wide measuring range up to 80° Brix (%weight sucrose).

E-line Gemological Refractometers

Bellingham + Stanley E-line Gemological Refractometers

The E-Line Gemological refractometer is a low cost, lightweight measuring instrument used by jewellers and traders of gemstones to measure polished stones over a refractive index range of 1.30 to 1.81 RI. The instrument can also be used to identify whether a particular stone is Isotropic or Anistropic (uniaxial or biaxial).

Pro-Juice Refractometer

Bellingham + Stanley Pro-Juice Refractometer

For many years, beverage manufacturers have adopted digital refractometers as their primary instrument for measuring the final dilution ratio (°Brix) of re-constituted fruit juice not only to assure product quality but also in an attempt to reduce losses by tightly controlling concentrate yields.

Abbe 5 Refractometer

Bellingham + Stanley Abbe 5 Refractometer

The Abbe 5 by Bellingham + Stanley is an affordable refractometer ideally suited for use where a wide refractive index measurement range is required such as in small contract laboratories or applications where sample throughput is relatively low. The instrument is also ideal for practical demonstrations and experiments in chemistry and physics laboratories of schools, colleges and universities and is the perfect partner to the new Model D7 optical polarimeter.

Abbe 60 Direct Reading Refractometers

Bellingham + Stanley Abbe 60 Direct Reading Refractometer

More stringent requirements of quality control and, in some cases, changing legislation, mean that greater accuracy is being demanded of refractometers. The Abbe 60 Direct Reading models, available in two measuring ranges, have been designed to meet these requirements.

Bellingham + Stanley RFM300-M Refractometer

Bellingham + Stanley RFM300-M Refractometer

NEW for 2017, the RFM300-M (RFM330-M + RFM340-M) brings our popular 300+ refractometer up-to-date with a line of high precision Peltier temperature controlled benchtop refractometers. Featuring wide beam optics and a durable membrane touch-button interface with 4" high resolution display, the RFM300-M Series is ideally suited for use in demanding applications within the food, beverage, chemical and industrial industries.

Bellingham + Stanley RFM300-T Refractometer

Bellingham + Stanley RFM300-T Refractometer

The RFM300-T Series is Bellingham + Stanley's latest release in a line of high precision Peltier temperature controlled benchtop refractometers. Featuring wide beam optics and a new 7" touch-screen user interface, the RFM300-T Series is ideally suited for use in demanding applications within the food, beverage, chemical and industrial industries.

Bellingham + Stanley RFM700-M Refractometer

Bellingham + Stanley RFM700-M Refractometer

NEW for 2017, The RFM700-M Series refractometers (RFM712, RFM732-M, RFM742-M) are robust, low cost, fully automatic instruments that are ideally suited to the food, sugar and beverage industries but can also be used in many other non-food applications where temperature control is not required, for example measuring sugar (°Brix) concentrations in the food processing industry.

Bellingham & Stanley ADP600 Series Polarimeter

Bellingham + Stanley ADP 600 Series Polarimeter

Available as single, dual and multiple wavelength derivatives not only covering the visible spectrum, the ADP600 Series of Peltier temperature controlled polarimeters are capable of measuring optical rotation to four decimal places in the highly sensitive ultra-violet region. This capability makes the instrument particularly suited for use by scientists wishing to measure chiral compounds and other optically active substances in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food sectors as well as for use in academic research.

ADP400 Series Polarimeters

Bellingham + Stanley ADP400 Series Polarimeters

The ADP400 Series are general-purpose single wavelength polarimeters suitable for sugar, food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The ADP400 polarimeters are available with or without XPC – Xylem's patented internal Peltier temperature control system. Both models use standard ICUMSA polarimeter tubes with a maximum length of 200mm. For fast performance in the Peltier controlled version, stainless steel tubes should be used. Low volume samples are also catered for with the addition of stainless steel, leur taper tubes.
