Color measurement of liquid chemical products

From glycolic acid to aromatic solvents to chlorinated kerosene, chemicals can be opaque, translucent or transparent and therefore require different measuring instruments or measuring techniques for successful color measurement. HunterLab offers the right solution, from equipment and software to sample holders, to ensure consistent and accurate color measurement for every measurement process and every sample. Oils, varnishes, fatty acids or resin solutions and adhesives often require special sample handling and, in addition to color values, indices (Gardner, Saybolt, Hazen etc.) and turbidity values are also determined. HunterLab spectrophotometers meet every requirement here.

The world’s leading chemical producers rely on solutions from HunterLab. Precise and repeatable measurement results ensure the quality and consistency of finished products and raw materials used throughout the entire supply chain.

Detergents, cleaning agents

Petrochemicals (olefins, benzene, ethylene, propylene), engine oil and solvents

Specialty chemicals (polymers, additives, agrochemicals, optical effect chemicals)

Resins, industrial adhesives

Our solutions for chemical solvents and liquids, petrochemicals and adhesives:

Vista

Standard-compliant testing of color and turbidity
  • Color & Haze

    Simultaneous measurement of color in transmission and haze.
  • Enough space for samples

    Large transmission shaft for many sizes and types of cuvettes, vials and foils.
  • Integrated QC software

    The EasyMatch QC Essentials quality control software is integrated into the device and provides all the required color indices, color numbers and metrics.
Aeros

    With an illumination range of 360-700 nm, the Agera is also suitable for measuring optically brightened samples.
  • Smart user interface

    Your measurement results can be easily transferred to existing LIMS or SPC systems.

  • Uncomplicated & precise

    Simple "one touch" measurement reduces training time, optimizes the workflow and increases your productivity.

Application example:

Color measurement of liquid chemical products with the Vista spectrophotometer

In the chemical industry, the precise determination of the color of transparent liquid products such as benzene, ethylene and propylene, as well as solvents and various lubricating oils such as engine oil, is very important in development and quality management. To qualify the color of petrochemicals, solvents and lubricants, an exact color measurement in transmission is the appropriate procedure. Some of these products work with internationally defined color numbers such as APHA/PtCo/Hazen, Gardner, Saybolt and others. HunterLab color measurement offers the perfect solution for determining exact color values and the right color number at the same time. The task In addition to the precise...

Color measurement of contact lenses

Color measurement of contact lenses

Color measurement is essential in the development of contact lenses in order to optimize both coloration and light transmission. Clear lenses are lightly tinted to facilitate handling without impairing the visual experience. Using specific color measurements, the transmission of light through the lenses can be precisely analyzed and controlled depending on the material. For tinted lenses, the precise measurement makes it possible to change eye colors authentically. HunterLabs Vista spectrophotom...
