How to measure Gardner color value?

Chemical Industry | 2017-12-09 13:01:49

We receive the liquid sample from one of our customer. They ask us to measure its Gardner color value. Today we will introduce how to measure it with the benchtop Garder color spectrophotometer CS-810.


1. Gardner color spectrophotometer CS-810 Calibration
Black calibrate it with black tile and then click black calibration on software.

3. Choose “Gardner” and “light source” and “angle” on software.
“Setup”—“list option”---“index”---“Gardner Color”
“Setup”—“Angle/Source Setting”—“C and 2 degree”

4. Put the samples with glass cell into the Gardner color spectrophotometer one by one. Press “target” and then “sample” on software. We get the Gardner color value directly on the PC software.
