The C130 is designed for use in laboratory, near-line process, and remote QA/QC applications where quick, accurate determination of whiteness and/or purity is required. This simple-to-use device allows users to quickly measure the whiteness of any powder sample and tests are able to be completed without sample preparation. The C130 can be calibrated for measuring substances such as rice flour, wheat flour, starch, calcium carbonate, salt, pharmaceutical powder, and cement. The C130 includes one factory calibration.

Bags are staged on a stainless steel tabletop and then transferred through a plastic strip curtain into a dumping enclosure comprised of a glove box, empty-bag chute and dust collector atop a receiving hopper. The dust collector maintains negative pressure within the enclosure, preventing the escape of dust through the curtain, while containing dust generated. A bag infeed chute through the sidewall of the enclosure allows the operator to pass empty bags directly into the compactor.
