Importance of Measuring Alcohol Content
 
Determining and measuring the alcohol (ethanol) content is critical for quality control purposes and to ensure the declaration of alcohol content is correct for industry and tax measurements. Accurate and precise measurements will be of critical importance to any distillery to ensure that their products meet the correct alcohol content.

Regular calibration and / or verification of the performance of alcoholmeters or densitometers using certified reference materials helps ensure that laboratories comply with quality control standards and produce reliable results with maximum accuracy.

We recently launched our range of Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) for Sulfur analysis, which are certified to both ISO 17025 and ISO 17034 under our accreditation to the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). 

Sulfur CRMs are suitable for calibration, verification or for use in quality control procedures used for analysing sulfur content in petroleum products. Our current range includes sulfur in light mineral oil, heavy mineral oil, odourless kerosene and in synthetic diesel, with sulfur content ranging from 0 (Blank) through to 5.0000% (50000ppm) for each material.

We are working to expand the sulfur content ranges we cover and increase the matrices, so please continue to check our website for any portfolio updates.
