Tartarcheck: tartaric stability in wine
Tartarcheck is an instrument for monitoring the tartaric stability which allows to evaluate how to stabilize, saving on the process and ensuring quality. Tartarcheck works on the principle of accelerating the THK precipitation, by adding it in excess as fine crystals.
The precipitation kinetics is followed by measuring the sample’s electrical conductivity, which depends on the ions in solution (so not yet precipitated), in a thermostated chamber whose temperature follows a pre-set time profile, by a microcomputer-controlled Peltier heat pump.
The instrument is complete and compact, with LCD display and thermal printer, and can be connected to external
computer via RS232C.
It does not need other external elements to work.
