Portable Spectrophotometers

If you need to measure color outside the laboratory, take the MiniScan EZ. Measure samples on the plant production floor, in storage areas, shipping departments or virtually anywhere that is convenient. No more running back and forth between the production line and the lab. The MiniScan EZ spectrophotometer gives you the best of two worlds - laboratory performance in a light-weight, take-anywhere design. Sophisticated dual-beam technology, normally found only in bench-top sensors, ensures accuracy. The durable ergonomic design promotes one-hand, one-touch operation so sample measurements are taken in seconds.

Benchtop Spectrophotometers

HunterLab bench-top color measurement systems offer the ultimate in sample measurement precision and versatility. Whether your product is large or small, liquid or solid, powder or flake, smooth or textured, one of our bench-top systems will provide the best solution to your sample measurement needs. Both spectrophotometer and colorimeter systems are available. The spectrophotometers offer greater flexibility when measuring a sample's color or color difference as it would appear under different lighting conditions. In addition to routine quality control, these instruments are also well suited for research and process control applications.

On-Line Spectrophotometers

On-line systems provide continuous, real-time measurement of your product on a process line. This allows you to respond to product color changes when they happen, as they happen. HunterLab on-line instruments make real-time color measurements of your product, without contact or intrusion, as it is being produced. From the beginning to end, production runs can be continuously monitored to identify color variation and out-of-spec product. This information helps you make permanent process improvements, while providing assurance that your product is within specification and allowing you to make shipment and allocation decisions.

Color Process Automation Technology (cPAT)

color Process Automation Technology (cPAT) is a fully integrated, online color measurement and color control solution tailored to specific continuous manufacturing processes such as plastics processing, plastics compounding, coated paper and food products. This unique system allows for automated adjustments to be made, in real-time, based on color measurements taken directly from the process stream. Adjustments can be made to control color feeder speeds, liquid pumps, motors that control production line speeds and oven temperature thermostats.
