RT-6000 Opacity Meter

Quick, Easy Measurement of Relative Opacity for Film and Packaging Products

RT-6000 Opacity Meter

Ideal for the laboratory or plant floor, the model RT-6000 is a simple-to-use, off-line instrument that indicates relative opacity of plastic film, paper laminates, printed packaging and other materials.

With a single pass of the light source through your material, the system measures relative light transmission on a scale of 0 to 100 Opacity Units, representing perfectly transparent to purely opaque materials, respectively.

  • Improves Product Quality
  • Controls Cost of Colorants
  • Meet customer opacity standards and ensure on-spec products
  • Inspect incoming film or paper products for use in secondary operations
  • Quickly match opacity to standard for rapid and accurate startup and operation of production
  • Perform competitor packaging analysis
As it helps you control opacity quality, the RT-6000 also saves you money on colorants, inks and other additives - among the most expensive components in the production of plastic film and other packaging materials. The RT-6000 will allow you to more cost-effectively evaluate, select and adjust your use of colorants. You can be sure you’re using just the right amount to meet your customers’ standards.
Easy to Use
Built for intuitive operation, this opacity meter is simple to use, minimizing the chance of operator error. It is small, lightweight and portable. And it features potentiometer calibration, requiring infrequent calibration, and a large digital display for easy legibility.
Rugged Construction
The RT-6000 is durably constructed with metal enclosure, lid and hardware. It also features improved electronics and mechanical design.
Convenient to Service
Replacing the occasional bulb is a quick job, thanks to the simplified design of the easy-to-remove top panel.
Traceable to Industry Specifications
The RT-6000 is indirectly traceable with each color class to the Flexible Packaging Association’s Specifications B-2.
