The LA02 refractometer measures the sugar content and the pH (optional) of a sample of grape must at the time of delivery to the wine processing plant. The unit automatically controls the analysis cycle (sampling, measuring and washing) and displays the results in the selected scale: as far as concerns the washing, the measurement takes place in a basin where the prism is automatically washed after each cycle with a dedicated wiper.
In order to handle the measurement data, the LA02 can be connected to an external printer and/or to the processing plant’s management system. The sample to be measured may be delivered to the LA02 both manually and automatically: in the automatic configuration, the analyzer is connected to the Maselli CC05 truck sampling probe by means of the must transfer unit. Even in the full configuration, all the cycle may be handled by only one operator using the joystick control panel. The farmers may see the results of the analysis in a dedicated remote display.
