Alcohol analyser

11 April, 2007

The Series 1000 alcohol analyser is a near infrared transmission spectrometer designed to measure alcohol in wine, beer and any other clear beverage. The instrument is based on a solid-state diode array optics system that scans from 860 to 1020 nm. Within this spectral region, O-H and C-H bonds absorb NIR energy. The O-H groups measure the water and alcohol in the sample and the C-H compensate for sugars, organic acids and other hydrocarbons in the beverages.
