Kyoto Electronics Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Japan are popular manufacturers of numerous analytical instruments, including portable densitymeters, refractometers, and Brix meters and table-top gas volume analysers. Since being founded in 1961, KEM has focussed only on innovating solutions for niche applications by developing and manufacturing analytical and measuring instruments for dedicated applications. 

Agaram’s association with KEM began in the year 2010 – and has since then turned out to be a profitable partnership for both the companies. 

The portable instruments from KEM find varied applications in the fields of food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, flavours and fragrances, and distilleries. The gas volume analysers are predominantly used in soft drinks and beverage manufacturing units.

The following are some of the most widely-used instruments of KEM:

(i) Portable Density Meter (DA-130N)

 A density meter is used to measure the density of liquids. The portable version of density meters might have lesser accuracy than the table-top ones, but are best suited for applications where pinpoint accuracy is not what is wanted, but quick operation and instant measurement is.

KEM’s offering of a portable density meter, called the DA-130N, works on the basis of the U-tube oscillation method. This method is approved by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

The DA130N has an ingenious but simple design where the electronics are housed far away from the U-tube. This is to ensure that the volatility of certain samples and the fumes of the acids do not harm the electronics.

(ii) Portable Refractometer (RA-130)

A refractometer is meant to measure the refractive index (RI) of liquid samples. In applications where accuracy is not of much importance, the portable refractometer can do the job as it gets you the value quickly.

KEM’s portable refractometer is called the RA-130. There are two ways in which you can measure the refractive index (RI) of a liquid sample using the RA-130:

• You can drop the sample on the prism.
• The prism part can be dipped inside the sample beaker.

You also have the choice of enabling automatic data saving and data output, with the capacity to save a maximum of 1,100 results.

(iii) Portable Brix Meter (BX-1)

In industries where the amount of sucrose is important, Brix is an important parameter and hence Brix meters have to be used. In most industries, measurement would need to be done for numerous samples in a shot span and hence a portable Brix meter would be the best fit.

KEM’s portable Brix meter, the BX1, is a digital device which can measure the Brix percentage for samples which are between 10°C and 75°C.

To withstand the demands of industries, where they would be subjected to rough usage, the BX-1 is water-proof and dust-proof.

(iv) Gas Volume Analyser (GVA-700)

In the field of beverages and aerated drinks, it is important to measure the volume of gas or internal pressure in the containers. To measure these parameters, a gas volume analyser would be of use.

KEM manufactures its own gas volume analyser and calls it the GVA-700. The GVA-700 can accommodate bottles of various sizes, including PET bottles of 2L or less.

(v) WBGT Meter (Model 203A/203B)

This hand-held instrument gives you critical atmospheric indicators including the wet bulb globe (WBGT) value, temperature, relative humidity, and globe temperature, which help predict the occurrence of heat strokes.

This product is an ingeniously built hand-held instrument that is extremely simple to use. It is designed for both outdoor and indoor use.
