Melting point determination

Tuesday, 09 June, 2009 | Supplied by: Arrow Scientific


The OptiMelt system provides a fast and accurate means of automatically determining the melting points and melting ranges of chemical substances. With microprocessor-controlled temperature ramping and a built-in digital camera, OptiMelt offers a fast and accurate method to measure melting point of products such as butter, margarine, chocolate as well as pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.

The Optimelt is easy to use and automatically determines the melting point of any substance over the range of room temperature to 400 °C.

The system automatically records a movie of the melt which users can play back to double check the point where the melt occurs. The system then automatically generates a report listing all the parameters of the melt including date, chemical name and batch number, start/stop points, ramp rate etc. It will also provide onset point, single point and clear points for each melt.

OptiMelt is specifically designed for unattended operation. It has a built-in digital camera that continuously captures real-time images of the samples and it uses digital image processing to determine results. The melting points and melting ranges are prominently displayed on the front panel and automatically recorded into memory for later review.

OptiMelt has an intuitive front panel and is easy to use. Simply select a start temperature, ramp rate, stop temperature and hit start. Results can be easily seen from across the laboratory on the large LCD.

Samples can be viewed on the front panel through a removable magnification lens. During a measurement, users can flag relevant events by pressing dedicated front-panel buttons. Up to six individual temperatures can be tagged for each sample.

Interactive help is available for all functions and parameters of the instrument. Text and numerical entry keypads are built into the touch-screen interface so that no external keyboard is required.
