Anton Paar has launched two high-performance refractometers: the Abbemat 450 and the Abbemat 650. The instruments are designed to be robust and offer high precision up to ±0.00002nD in order to measure the refractive index under harsh conditions.

The two heavy-duty refractometers are suitable for customers who handle aggressive samples or do refractive index measurements in fume hoods or glove boxes. The instruments are designed for remote operation. They consist of a measuring unit and a separate control unit that can be put in a safer place. This allows the user to operate the instrument from a distance of up to 5m.

To achieve excellent mechanical stability, Anton Paar machined the housing of the compact measuring unit from a solid block of aluminium and then anodised its surface for durability.

Key features and benefits

  • The Abbemat measuring units can easily withstand bumps and scrapes, as well as splashes of water.
  • The instruments are fully waterproof to a depth of 1m for up to two hours (IP68).
  • Two accuracy levels are available: ±0.0001nD (Abbemat 450) and ±0.00002nD (Abbemat 650).
  • The sapphire prism is scratchproof and provides a wide measurement range (1.26nD to 1.72nD).
  • A built-in solid-state temperature control (Peltier) ensures precise temperature adjustment between 10°C and 85°C.
