Hand-held IPA Measuring Device IPA CONTROL EXACT
The hand-held IPA measuring device has been developed to quickly, easily and very precisely determine the concentration of isopropyl alcohol (IPA) in the dampening solution used in offset printing presses. Altogether, the volume concentration of up to 8 percent can be measured.
A special gas sensor determines the isopropyl alcohol concentration in evaporated dampening solution based on the gas extraction principle. Using this measured value, the IPA concentration in the dampening solution sample is calculated under consideration of calibration formulas and the sample temperature and is displayed. Samples can be taken at any point in the dampening solution circulation.
In addition to offering reliable process control, the device also provides other advantages: It can recognise potential overdoses and can help achieve potential savings due to controlled IPA usage.
