Wines with low phenol contents, such as rosé, light reds and whites should be checked for protein stability before bottling. HANNA is offers a quick test to verify the risk of future protein haze formation. If protein instability is detected, a subsequent test can help define the right amount of bentonite to be added for improving protein stability. It is important not to overdose bentonite to avoid stripping wine flavor, body, and significant loss of color, especially in young red wines. Moreover, adding only the necessary amount of bentonite to obtain the desired protein stability also saves costs.
The HI 83749 measures turbidity of samples from 0.00 to 1200 NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Units) and is USEPA compliant. In the USEPA measurement mode the instrument rounds the readings to meet USEPA reporting requirements.
HI 83749-01 (115V), HI 83749-02 (230V) and HI 83749-03 (AUS plug) are supplied with sample cuvettes and caps (6), calibration cuvettes (HI 83749-11) (4), bentocheck reagent (HI 83749-0) and silicone oil (HI 93703-58), 1000 µL automatic pipette with two tips and instructions sheet, 25 mL glass vials with caps (4), 1 mL syringe with two tips, funnel, filter paper (25), cuvette cleaning cloth, 12 VDC adapter, batteries, instructions and rugged carrying case.
