This unit is a Flow Injection Analysis system, which we will use to measure the conversion degree of the reaction of the saccharose hydrolysis in a continuous way.
This unit provides an easy method for measuring the saccharose concentration of the final product in continuous way without the need of the measuring it manually. The unit can also be useful for the teaching of the FIA technique and the demonstration of the advantages of this measuring method in continuous processes.
It consists of a peristaltic pump with four channels that is used to impulse the right quantities of the final product together with reagents that colour it. Then the solution are put through coil reactor in order to complete the mixture. The last stage of the QRCB-IF unit involves passing the reaction through the spectrophotometer measuring cell.
