Lovibond® Tintometer® PFXi-995/P The Lovibond® PFXi-995/P is a spectrophotometric colorimeter that is designed to meet the color analysis requirements of petroleum fuels, oils, waxes and petrochemicals. It provides objective, unbiased color data according to a full range of established industry scales, although the user can easily customize the PFXi-995/P to display only those scales of interest. Measurements can also be displayed in terms of spectral data and CIE values.
Remote Calibration & Maintenance Service via Internet (RCMSi)
Color measurement instruments need regular checking with calibration standards to ensure correct operation and compliance to established international standards. RCMSi is the process in which a number of tightly controlled calibration liquids are measured in a 50 mm cell* via the Calibration function of a PFXi. The data is communicated via the internet to a secure server and compared to Master Data. If the data passes within tolerance, then a Certificate of Calibration is e-mailed to the user. This allows The Tintometer Ltd to ensure a PFXi instrument is operating correctly and fully calibrated using ISO 17025 certified standards. So, users can be 100% confident that all PFXi readings are reliable. In addition, RCMSi eliminates the timely and costly need to return equipment to a service center unnecessarily.
Note: Please register before performing your first calibration. Certificates of Calibration are provided post process.
*(Please note 50mm cell must be used when performing RCMSi calibration.)
