WOONSOCKET – Hanna Instruments Inc. – the maker of cost effective devices for lab, environmental industry and food applications – has released two new mini-automatic titrators designed specifically for wine production.
The new titrators, HI84500 and HI84502, are designed to measure sulfur dioxide and total acidity during the wine making process.
“Hanna Instruments understands that small variations in acidity and sulfur dioxide content can have a significant impact on the overall quality and stability of wine.” Paul Fabsits, vice president of global business development, said in a statement.
“The more accurate the instrumentation, the more consistent the results will be,” added Fabsits. “By incorporating a new precision piston style dosing system and an algorithm for dynamic dosing, we have been able to take an already accurate product and improve it significantly.”
The two new models will replace Hanna’s existing HI 84100 and HI 84102 and feature improved accuracy, an automatic stirrer speed control, a graphic model with exportable data and a good laboratory practices feature, which allows users to view calibration data.
