Purpose Built Flame Photometer with specialised software, firmware and hardware

The BWB BIO AV is an offshoot of the popular BWB BIO. A simplified menu structure and enhanced Li detection make it a welcome addition to the BWB family. The ability to calibrate and measure Sodium, Potassium, and Lithium at the same time with the same dilution (from 1:6 to 1:100) streamlines throughput in many laboratories. We have retained the ability to enter and store two user-defined calibration curves should the user wish to readily measure differing sample types

Highly accurate and cost effective analysis in the lab or 'on the road'

Potassium is essential to plant growth, fertilisers and soil substrates have been analysed using flame photometry for decades. Building upon 2017 research papers conducted by Professor Akiharu Sasaki for the specific use of flame photometer analysis in the agricultural industry over and above other methods of analysis the BWB SOIL Flame Photometer was born.

This unique instrument has been designed and developed in conjunction with various field requests and operational requirements for the specific analysis of fertilisers and soil substrates. Building upon the footprint of the award winning BWB XP instrument the SOIL offers all the benefits of our base product optimised over and beyond the requirements for analysis in the agricultural industry.

The SOIL instrument offers enhanced Ca detection alongside Sodium and Potassium with the option to utilise Lithium as an internal reference standard.

The ease of portability of this instrument and ‘Just add Gas’ configuration allows the instrument to be set up in the back of a van and conduct field analysis on site at various geographical locations. With a thermal printer fitted as standard, traceability for sample analysis is maintained throughout.

?The BWB SOIL is the first instrument of its kind optimised for the agricultural industry.

Redefining Sugar refining from beet or cane

 

In keeping with the Globally accepted published papers from 1977 forward, potassium and sodium detection is now available online 24/7 with a Uniquely configured channel of detection for extreme accuracy along the range of potassium control.

?This winning proprietary format has been improved with a unique adaptation and optimisation of the proprietary BWB optical array detection systems, which in this iteration of the BWB Specialty Flame Photometers allows for a single channel of precise and accurate potassium and sodium measurement.

This Specialty Flame Photometer has been requested and designed for the global Sugar Production marketplace.

There were a few traditional Flame Photometer manufacturers over the decades who had served this market and now these robust and fantastic units are coming out of service.

?Enter the BWB SUGAR Flame Photometer with specialised potassium and sodium channel detection, supplied with hybridised specific needs multiple point calibration solutions for potassium and sodium. Per our customers’ requests, our Collection Cup provides Real Time sample access for our mixing chamber/detection systems and only requires that the sample be at or near ambient temperature and customer provided ~5ml/minute feed to our unique “Collection Cup” system.

FP/PC APP
This totally unique BWB feature allows multiple installations details to be shared via intranet or internet links to provide “Distributed Control” via a single Control room with staff completely remote from the Refinery site itself. For large Sugar Companies with multiple sites around the world, this allows Expertise from a centralized location anywhere in the world with real time virtually limitless data accumulation and analysis.

.csv files allow users to construct novel and proprietary Excel spread sheets and to share data quickly and efficiently.
