Density and Concentration Meter DMA 5000 M
The density meter DMA 5000 M provides unparalleled ease of use and complete transparency and traceability of the sample filling and measurement process. DMA 5000 M is the most accurate density meter on the market and is ideal for numerous applications. Digital density measurement with DMA 5000M is used, for example, in industrial quality control, research, at authorities and standards organizations The new Generation M density meters combine the DMAs’ known excellent measuring capabilities with unparalleled levels of user confidence and comfort. A host of new features provides complete confidence in the sample filling and measurement process and therefore in the quality of the measurement results With density measurement results as accurate as up to ± 5 x 10-6 g/cm3, a temperature accuracy of ± 0.01 °C and a sample volume requirement of only 1 mL, DMA is the high-precision reference instrument with the least sample consumption for calibration offices. DMA 5000 M provides compliance standards such as: AOAC international, OIV international, MEBAK, EBC international, ASBC, TTB (USA), European & US Pharmacopoeia, 21CFR part 11, cGLP/GMP, DIN 51757, ISO 12185, ASTM D 1250, ASTM D 4052, ASTM D 5002, ASTM D 5931, ISO 2811-3, ISO 15212, HM Customs and Excise (GB), EN 14214, ASTM D 4806
  1. Features
  2. Specification


Technology: Anton Paar’s DMA density meters combine the groundbreaking oscillating U-tube principle, the integrated reference oscillator, highly accurate platinum thermometers and a full-range viscosity correction to provide exceptional measurement performance. The new features of DMA Generation M add an outstanding level of user confidence and comfort
Adaptable configurations: Use the function keys below the touchscreen, a mouse or an external keyboard if you are working in a harsh environment. Enter sample identifications through a keyboard, a bar code reader, or via other means. Connect a large PC monitor or touchscreen to read the results or operate the instrument from afar. Choose from common density units such as g/cm3, kg/m3, pound/gallon and employ “customer tables” to calculate concentrations in units such as %w/w, %m/m.
