Automatic Saccharimeter: MCP 200/250 Sucromat
MCP 200/250 Sucromat is an economically priced saccharimeter providing accurate analysis of °Z (International Sugar Scale) for the sugar industry. While MCP 200 measures at 589 nm, MCP 250 measures at two wavelengths: 589 nm and 880 nm. At 880 nm MCP 250 can measure strongly colored filtrates which cannot be measured in the visible range. Over 30 years of experience and highest quality in development, production and customer support has made Anton Paar saccharimeters the standard in sugar analysis. Their modular design allows customer-specific configurations and future upgrades.
