Density meters - DM45, Rudolph 2911+

Recommended Posts

All,

We are considering the purchase of a density meter and have demo'ed the Rudolph 2911+. I have quotes in hand for the 2911+ and the Mettler-Toledo DM45. Anyone have fist hand experience with either that they would consider sharing? thanks.

We love our Anton Parr DMA 35 and DMA 4500. Make you do a apples to apples comparison.

I was demo'ed on the Rudolf. I liked it and the price was best I could find. Just still to expensive right now.

Rudolf's customer service is great. Never got the chance to demo a anton par that was functional. Every time the rep showed up it was busted plus they would only bring the hand held never the bench top model. So we went with Rudolf

Can someone provide pricing on the Rudolph?

We just nabbed a used Mettler Toledo DM45 extended range. This is on the TTBs approved list. This product family was just replaced in Mettler's Liquiphysics line, but the new units are not yet approved by the TTB. The Mettler is more intended for integration in a controlled proprietary lab environment, not quite as easy to use as the Anton Paar. Once you get it set up, it works similarly. If I were buying new, I would probably go with Anton Paar or Rudolph. But I got this for less than 1/3 the new price,  and it was clean, fully operational, and previously used for proof determination. So we are putting up with the "idiot operator" interface design. Spare parts and support are very expensive, but is available in the USA.
