  • Self-contained kit to measure gardner color
  • Fast, economical & portable visual matching
  • Two-field vision for accurate results, includes an integrated prism which causes the sample and comparison fields to overlap, allowing enhanced colour discrimination and matching. The prism is ultrasonically sealed to prevent contamination of the optics. Each individually graded glass standard represents a discrete step on the measurement range (as opposed to a continuous graduation), aiding color discrimination and allowing great accuracy of results.
  • Ability to guarantee constant lighting conditions, an optional item is the Daylight 2000 Lighting Unit. This is a standardised light source which guarantees you a constant lighting condition for accurate color grading. This is particularly useful when the sample is very pale in color. By using a lighting unit, you can confident of uniform lighting conditions for color matching, 24 hours a day and irrespective of ambient lighting.
  • Applications: edible oils and fats, petroleum oils and waxes
  • Easy to use, just rotate the disc to get the closest result to the scale.
  • Flexible, modular system for visual color grading. Using a suitable comparator instrument and glass disc, you can quickly visually match the sample directly against the calibrated, color stable glass standards.
  • Extended shelf life, test discs that incorporate colored glass standards that are color stable and not affected by UV light or extreme environmental conditions.
  • Two models available:
    • Gardner Color Scale for ASTM D1544
    • ASTM Color Scale for ASTM D1500
