Building on decades of experience in laboratory refractometry, Anton Paar has launched the L-Rix 510 sensor, its first inline process refractometer.
L-Rix 510 is designed to make fast, easy work of a wide range of hygienic applications, including measurements on pharmaceuticals, dairy, sugar solutions, syrup, food and beverages containing pulp.
Tailored to perform with an extremely high degree of accuracy, L-Rix 510 comes ready-to-install with a preset factory setting that never needs adjustment or recalibration.
The sensor’s soldered optics need no liquid seals and ensure maintenance-free operation for the first 10 years of its service life.
L-Rix 510 efficiently handles from 0 to 100 weight concentrations and provides refractive index and concentration results comparable to those of laboratory refractometers.
Once CIP/SIP routines are completed, the sensor reactivates in minutes to minimise downtime.
Bringing intelligence to production-line monitoring, L-Rix 510 has an intuitive touchscreen interface, available in three versions for easy set-up of instrument parameters: the L-Rix 510 for use with Anton Paar’s mPDS 5 evaluation unit, L-Rix510 OT with built-in operating terminal that displays measured values and L-Rix 510 ROT which displays values on a remote operating terminal.
The instrument’s sensor seamlessly integrates with other equipment and controls via analog output or fieldbus connections using PROFIBUS, Modbus TCP, and PROFINET, DeviceNet or Ethernet/IP protocols.
It conforms with ASME Bioprocessing Equipment Standards and NAMUR NE107 diagnostic standards and is EHEDG-certified.
