Product information "HI83730-02 Photometer for the Determination of Peroxide Value in Olive Oils"



The HI 83730 is an instrument that benefits from HANNA’s years of experience as a manufacturer of analytical instruments. It has an advanced optical system based on a special tungsten lamp and a narrow band interference filter that allows the most accurate and repeatable readings. All instruments are factory calibrated.

The auto-diagnostic feature of this meter ensures optimal measurement conditions for highly precise readings. The light level is automatically adjusted each time a zero-measurement is made, and the lamp is temperature controlled to avoid overheating.

Significance and Use

Peroxides are the primary products of oil oxidation. Their identification gives useful information about oil conservation and rancidity. HI 83730 allows a fast and simple analysis of peroxides in oil in accordance with the EC 2568/91 method.
