An alcohol meter for all distillates

New portable alcohol meter for distillates: Snap 50 from Anton Paar

Anton Paar has developed an alcohol meter which measures distillates in all strengths with an accuracy of 0.1 % v/v. The portable Snap 50 is so easy to operate that quality checks directly on-site, outside the laboratory are accomplished in next to no time - independent of the ambient temperature.

Snap 50 is easy to carry, light and robust – and will interest small distilleries and also industrial producers: It speeds up and simplifies the whole watering down and checking procedure in all distilleries.

What distillers particularly like about the portable alcohol meter is that “you can measure distillates in all strengths with one and the same instrument”. Snap 50 checks the alcohol content in two-component mixtures of water and ethanol throughout the whole production process: from pure distillates, samples taken during watering down to drinkable strength or ready-to-drink spirits. “One for all” is therefore the motto of this alcohol meter, which gives the user the required results only a few seconds after immersing the measuring tube in the distillate.

Sample temperatures from 0 °C to 40 °C are measured by Snap 50 and the alcohol content is automatically calculated and displayed for the required reference temperature of 20 °C (or 60 °F). Feedback from the test installations confirms that “measurement is quick because the sample is measured directly out of the storage tank or cask and does not have to be transferred to a measuring glass first. And you don’t have to wait long for the sample temperature to stabilize because the metal tube with the measuring cell remains in the distillate during the measurement.”

The well-established oscillating U-tube principle is used to measure the density, which is the basis for the automatic calculation of the alcohol concentration. As Anton Paar is the world leader in digital density measurement, users can rely on the measuring accuracy of 0.1 % v/v.

Not only distillers but also industrial producers of spirits and producers of cooling agents are pleased that the effort required for alcohol checks is considerably reduced by Snap 50, as the results are shown on a digital display and extra calculations are no longer required.
