The BWB WINE Flame Photometer

Highly accurate and cost effective analysis, in your lab and on your terms

 

With our new “Light Pipe Technology” and multiple calcium detectors systems we are now able to meet the rigid standards of calcium detection in wine as this additive is blended in and then removed out in processing. Of course our potassium and Sodium channels are also specified for this important industry as well.

Used by the more discriminating wine producers in the world, the BWB Wine flame photometer not only offers a superior analytical instrument for the industry but is also a vital tool for optimising product quality through early detection and measurement of these key elements.
