This is the Flame Photometer BWB Wine model

Highly accurate and cost effective analysis, in your lab and on your terms

With our new “Light Pipe Technology” and multiple calcium detectors systems we are now able to meet the rigid standards of calcium detection in wine as this additive is blended in and then removed out in processing. Of course our potassium and sodium channels are also specified for this important industry as well.
