ColorFlex Sample Cup Port + Open, Glass, 400 nm and 420 nm UV Cut-off Filter Options

For samples that must be contained for color measurement such as powders, granules, pellets, creams and translucent liquids, HunterLab typically sells a glass sample cup (HL# 04-7209-00) with an open sample cup port (HL# 04-6622-00).

This sample cup port is designed to center the sample cup at the measuring port. The drop-down lip allows the lens of the instrument to focus on the bottom of the sample rather than the bottom of the glass window.

Here are some useful options for the sample cup port:

CMR-3155 Sample Cup Port + Glass

Modifies a ColorFlex 45/0 04-6622-00 Open Sample Cup Port to add a glass disk under the drop-down lip of the sample cup port. Although there is another cover glass over the detector below the port, this modification adds extra protection against spills.

CMR-3187 Sample Cup Port + 380-nm UV Filter

Modifies a ColorFlex 45/0 04-6622-00 Sample Cup Port to add a 380-nm UV Cut-off filter under the drop-down lip of the port. This effectively cuts off the UV below 360-nm for UV optically brightened opaque powders, pellets, liquids and translucent creams. The filter controls the UV output of the lamp to allow consistent measurement of the UV-excluded base color of the sample.

CMR-3156 Sample Cup Port + 400 nm UV Filter

Modifies a ColorFlex 45/0 04-6622-00 Open Sample Cup Port to add a 400-nm UV cut-off filter under the drop-down lip of the sample cup port. This effectively cuts off the UV below 390-nm for UV optically brightened opaque powders, pellets, liquids and translucent creams. The filter controls the UV output of the lamp to allow consistent measurement of the UV-excluded base color of the sample.

CMR-3120 Sample Cup Port + 420 nm UV Filter

Modifies a ColorFlex 45/0 04-6622-00 Open Sample Cup Port to add a 420-nm UV Cut-off filter under the drop-down lip of the sample cup port. This effectively cuts off the UV below 400-nm for UV optically brightened opaque powders, pellets, liquids and translucent creams. The filter controls the UV output of the lamp to allow consistent measurement of the UV-excluded base color of the sample.

Gardner Color for 24 mm Vial does not display CMR-3173

CMR-3173 EZMQC Vial APHA+Gardner-24mm [C/2]

Used on: CQXE USPRO USVIS

This CMR in EasyMatch QC provides custom APHA and Gardner correlation for measurement of liquid samples using 24-mm ID (27 mm - 30 mm OD) Glass Vials. These molded glass vials may be purchased from HunterLab in 3 sizes - A13-1015-359 20 ml , A13-1015-360 40 ml and A13-1015-361 60 ml. HunterLab can also supply the D02-1011-550 Transmission Vial Holder (purchased separately) for positioning these vials securely at the TTRAN port.

FAQ "The programmed hardware keys you sent to one of my clients did not seem to activate CMR-3173 for display of 24mm-Vial APHA and Gardner Color. Does he need different software? He can't see anything in the indices menu that reflects CMR-3173 or any mention of the 24mm Gardner Color."

Let's check two items:

  1. The CMR is turned on through the hardware key. Go to Help/About in EasyMath QC and verify that "CMR-3173" is listed as installed. Make sure there are not two EZMQC hardware keys plugged into the computer at the same time.
  2. Make sure the instrument is standardized in the TTRAN LAV UVF Nominal mode. This turns on the display of 25 mm vial APHA and Gardner metrics as items to be selected under "Indices" in Color Data View/Configure. Both APHA and Gardner are transmission-only metrics and will only be available for selection if the instrument is standardized in a transmission mode.
