Density is a key factor for quality control and metering of liquid products. Electronic density meters provide the most effective means of measurement by calculating the length of vibration in a hollow tube filled with sample.
Most laboratory density meters have a side mount sample injection inlet. It is well suited for automatic sampler connection, but manually injecting sample with a syringe could easily foul the leak-proof connection affixed to the measuring cell. Furthermore, careless handling can damage the measuring cell itself, resulting in costly repairs.
The measuring cell on the VIP-2MP from Termex is located on a ‘floating’ suspension with a flexible connection to the injection inlet on the front panel by PTFE tubes. This design eliminates the possibility of depressurisation and sample leaks inside the instrument. The ‘soft’ suspension of the measuring cell ensures less chance of damage during transportation or instrument operation for mobile laboratories.
The VIP-2MP density meter provides ±0.0001 g/mL accuracy and, thanks to its unique sensor design, is a lightweight, compact, and inexpensive instrument with low power consumption, making it ideal for routine density measurement tasks.
