Tartarcheck: tartaric stability meter in wines

TartarCheck is a tool for the control of tartaric stability that allows to evaluate how much to stabilize, saving on the process and ensuring the quality of the product. It is based on the principle of acceleration of the precipitation of THK adding excess in the form of fine crystals.
The precipitation kinetics is followed by measuring the electrical conductivity of the sample, which depends on the solution ions in solution not yet precipitated, in a thermostated chamber whose temperature follows a predefined temporal profile by means of a Peltier effect heat pump controlled by a microcomputer.
The instrument is complete and compact, has an LCD and thermal printer and can be connected to an external computer via RS232C.
To work it does not need other external elements.
With a simple and intuitive software it is possible to:
– carry out isothermal precipitation kinetics (at any temperature between -4 and +40 ° C)
– determine the TS by intersecting the thermal conductivity profiles both in the absence and in the presence of THK crystals
– printing and / or storing (depending on the model) the precipitation kinetics for the isothermal test and the differential conductivity diagrams as a function of the temperature for the Ts test calculation.
