Lovibond® Colorpods


Lovibond® EBC ColorPod

The Tintometer Ltd. has introduced a new hand held photometer for the analysis of EBC (European Brewing Convention) color units. The Lovibond® ColorPod is based on proven technology that has been utilized in the water testing area for a number of years.

The Lovibond® EBC ColorPod combines simplicity with accuracy for the measurement of color in the brewing industry. The instrument is compact and portable allowing for measurements to be made in-situ, rather than having to carry samples back to the laboratory.

The measurement is performed in accordance with the official photometric EBC method for color that relates the light at 430 nm passed through the sample being analyzed with the EBC color value. The light is generated by a single wavelength LED that will last the lifetime of the instrument, samples are measured in 10 mm path length plastic cuvettes, that are inserted into the spill proof sample chamber. The measurements take only three seconds to perform, with results output either in EBC color units or absorbance at 430 nm.

Honey ColorPod

The Tintometer Ltd. has introduced a new hand held photometer for the analysis of Pfund color units. The Lovibond® ColorPod is based on proven technology that has been utilized in the water testing area for a number of years.

Traditionally Pfund color units have been derived using subjective visual assessment in a Pfund Honey Colorimeter or against glass standards. This can lead to differences in reported values between users. A more objective approach is to use an instrumental method based on a photometric measurement.

The measurement is performed using two single wavelength LEDs at right angles to each other. Light at 430 nm and 530 nm is passed through the sample being analyzed. The transmitted light is then related to the Pfund color scale or to the seven USDA Honey classifications. The LED will last the lifetime of the instrument. Samples are measured in 10 mm path length plastic cuvettes, with four clear sides, that are inserted into the spill proof sample chamber. The measurements take only three seconds to perform, with results output in mm Pfund honey.
