ACCESSORIES

Multi-Function Sample Holder

D02-1017-192

This holder is designed to measure color, transmittance haze compliant with ASTM D1003 Procedure B. The reversible design allows both total and regular transmittance measurements by either placing and holding the sample directly against the sphere or the receptor port, ensuring precision, accuracy and consistency of sample placement for films, plastics and liquids. This sample holder is also the base unit for other optional cell holders and accessories. 

 

Round Vial & Preform Holder

L02-1017-471

This preform holder requires the Multi-Function Sample Holder (D02-1017-192), securely positioning the preform either vertically or horizontally for accurate transmittance color measurement. It is not intended for Haze measurements of preforms. 

 

Self Centering Sample Holder

D02-1017-193

The self-centering sample holder takes the guess work out of cell placement for total or regular transmittance, ensuring precision and accuracy every time. The simple design ensures proper distance and alignment of the cell or sample, eliminating inconsistencies from cell to cell and user to user.

 

Universal Adapter Base Plate

D02-1017-223

This universal adapter base plate with (2) accessory mounting bolts is designed to accommodate third-party sample holders. Measuring 5” x 3.75” (127 mm x 95.25 mm) this base plate has 20 individual 0.25” (6.35 mm) threaded holes that are spaced in a 1” x 1” (25.4 mm x 25.4 mm) grid pattern.

 

Macro Cell Holder for Haze Measurement

D02-1017-344

This cell holder is precisely designed to hold macro analytical cells for repeatable total transmittance and haze measurements. Also accommodates plastic cells and requires D02-1017-192 Multi-Function Sample Holder. A starter kit of three PMMA plastic cells is included with this cell holder.

 

Semi-Micro Cell Holder for Haze Measurement

D02-1017-390

This cell holder positions semi-micro analytical plastic cells for repeatable total transmittance and haze measurements. Also accommodates semi-micro 10mm plastic cells with outside path length dimension not exceeding 12.42 (path length) x 12.50mm (0.489 x 0.492 inches) and requires D02-1017-192 Multi-Function Sample Holder. A starter kit of three PMMA plastic cells is included with this cell holder.

 

Didymium Diagnostic Filter for Vista

Replacement diagnostic filter used for wavelength verification of the instrument. Didymium filter comes in a holder that magnetically mounts to the sphere side of the sample compartment. (Included with instrument).

 

Haze Check Standard for Vista

D02-1017-410

This diagnostic standard is used for verification of haze measurement. The haze standard comes in a holder that magnetically mounts to the sphere side of the sample compartment.
