Wescor Vapro vapor pressure osmometer model 5520
The Vapro osmometer is an advanced electronic adaptation of the hygrometric method of vapor pressure determination. The sensitive thermocouple and sophisticated electronics provide the means to measure the dew point temperature depression of a specimen with resolution to 0.00031 °C. Vapor pressure and freezing point are among the colligative properties of a solution. Compared with pure solvent, these properties are altered in proportion to the number of solute particles dissolved in each kilogram of solvent (water in the case of biological solutions). Thus, measuring either property is an indirect means of determining solution concentration or osmolality.
All of the equipment we sell is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.
