Optimised flame photometry for sodium & potassium in the sugar refining industry.

In keeping with the Globally accepted published papers from 1977 forward, potassium and sodium detection is now available online 24/7 with a Uniquely configured channel of detection for extreme accuracy along the range of potassium control.

This winning proprietary format has been improved with a unique adaptation and optimisation of the proprietary BWB optical array detection systems, which in this iteration of the BWB Specialty Flame Photometers allows for a single channel of precise and accurate potassium and sodium measurement.

This Specialty Flame Photometer has been requested and designed for the global Sugar Production marketplace.

There were a few traditional Flame Photometer manufacturers over the decades who had served this market and now these robust and fantastic units are coming out of service.

Enter the BWB SUGAR Flame Photometer with specialised potassium and sodium channel detection, supplied with hybridised specific needs multiple point calibration solutions for potassium and sodium. Per our customers’ requests, our Collection Cup provides Real Time sample access for our mixing chamber/detection systems and only requires that the sample be at or near ambient temperature and customer provided ~5ml/minute feed to our unique “Collection Cup” system.

This totally unique BWB feature allows multiple installations details to be shared via intranet or internet links to provide “Distributed Control” via a single Control room with staff completely remote from the Refinery site itself.  For large Sugar Companies with multiple sites around the world, this allows Expertise from a centralized location anywhere in the world with real time virtually limitless data accumulation and analysis.

.csv files allow users to construct novel and proprietary Excel spread sheets and to share data quickly and efficiently.
