Dropping Point System DP90

Sub-Zero Possibilities.The DP90 offers simultaneous dropping and softening point determination of two samples from –20°C to 400°C. It consists of a control unit and a separate measuring cell that can be placed in a refrigerator or deep freezer.

Simple One Click™ Operation

The One Click™ user interface enables users to start measurements with a single click of the button.

Trusted performance

With the visual camera observation and digital image analysis, highly accurate dropping/softening point temperatures are obtained fully automatically.

Determination at sub-ambient temperature

When placed in a refrigerator or freezer, the external cell allows reliable characterization of ointments, creams, and edible fats.

Comprehensive and intuitive operation

The large color display and touch screen with the intuitive One Click™ user interface minimizes training and operator influence. Quick familiarization is guaranteed with the common user interface for all Analytical Laboratory instruments.

Efficient analyses

Simultaneous measurement of two samples saves valuable time and effort. Short heating and cooling times allow more analyses to be performed in a shorter period of time.

Fast and accurate sample preparation

The accessory box contains all required tools for correct and quick sample preparation and handling. Disposable cups and glassware eliminate the need for tedious cleanup.

Complete results documentation

All results are securely archived and can be tracked at any time. Analysis data can be printed out, saved as a pdf file, or directly transferred to a PC.

Conformity with current standards

Operation according to standards of ASTM International, European Pharmacopeia and further standards makes it easier to compare measurement results.

User Management

Instrument settings can be personalized with shortcuts and the selected operator language. The user management system allows different levels of access to be defined, protecting critical data.
