The Agapi ebulliometer was developed for the measure of alcohol; it is similar to Dujardin-Salleron's electronic instrument but costs between 25% and 30% less.
It also includes much interesting equipment: a twisted array of corkscrews, cooper's tools such as crozes and adzes, and mysterious instruments including an ebulliometer (which measures alcohol content).
The most common measurement method for wineries is the ebulliometer, which compares the boiling temperature of water and the boiling point of wine to determine alcohol concentration (which lowers the boiling point).
The boiling temperature (T) vs liquid-phase mole fractions (x) results were obtained with the semi-micro ebulliometer described in detail in [10].
The analytical error for dry wines using an ebulliometer accumulates based on several factors: air pressure (+/- 0.5%), thermometer reading (+/- 0.04%), conversion scale (+/- 0.02%).
New HI83540 alcohol analyzer for small to midsized wineries; sugar interferences; higher-altitude wineries that cannot use an ebulliometer. Easy use; consistency/reliability, data logging.
I quickly abandoned all analyses, except for S[O.sub.2] and the old ebulliometer, for the enological testing expertise of others.
