The PAL-Urea is specifically designed to measure the Urea concentration of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), also known as AdBlue* in Europe. Already proven in Europe as the only reliable, go-to instrument for easy and accurate checks, the PAL-Urea is now available in North America in time for new 2010 EPA regulations on diesel emissions.DEF needs to have a 32.5% Urea concentration in order to work effectively in SCR engines. Make sure that the DEF that comes out of your pump and into your tank is pure in quality and safe from potentially harmful additives by using the only digital hand-held refractometer already trusted by European consumers.* AdBlue is a trademark of VDA.

Urea, also known as carbamide, is an organic compound with chemical formula CO(NH2)2. This amide has two –NH2 groups joined by a carbonyl (C=O) functional group.
Urea serves an important role in the metabolism of nitrogen-containing compounds by animals and is the main nitrogen-containing substance in the urine of mammals. It is a colourless, odourless solid, highly soluble in water, and practically non-toxic (LD50 is 15 g/kg for rats). Dissolved in water, it is neither acidic nor alkaline. The body uses it in many processes, most notably nitrogen excretion. The liver forms it by combining two ammonia molecules (NH3) with a carbon dioxide (CO2) molecule in the urea cycle. Urea is widely used in fertilizers as a source of nitrogen (N) and is an important raw material for the chemical industry.
- Urea Concentration, Diesel Exhaust Fluid , DEF, AdBlue
AdBlue® is an aqueous solution with a concentration of 32.5 % urea. In North America, it is referred to as DEF (for "diesel exhaust fluid"). Urea reacts with nitrogen oxides and creates environmentally safe nitrogen and water. AdBlue® is therefore added to diesel to lower nitrogen oxide emissions. In countries where taxes are graduated according to vehicle emissions, reduced emissions of nitrous oxides may be cost efficient. Moreover, the addition of AdBlue® results in a reduction of fuel consumption by 3 % to 8 %.
A new ergonomic design for comfort and ease of use! In pursuit of an "easy to use" , "easy to operate" and ergonomic architecture of new instruments, ATAGO has achieved a "palm fitting" masterpiece as well as unit that is high in hygienic properties. By reducing the number of unnecessary assembly parts, we have reduced the risks of a germ reproductive environment. Through our efforts to produce a hygienic instrument to be used in any industry, these units are designed to be completely washable. The new PAL series has been approved by the HACCP, and are equipped with the new ELI feature, which ensures accurate measurements - even outdoors. Requests from our customers worldwide are reflected in the development of the new PAL units
ATAGO Releases NFC (Near Field Communication) Equipped Refractometers
In addition to the Bluetooth enabled refractometers, ATAGO ® released refractometers with near-field communication (NFC) technology for the ease of storing and sharing data with phones, tablets, laptops, and other NFC-equipped devices. Simply by tapping NFC-equipped devices, up to 100 measurement data with the date and time are transferred in a matter of seconds. The NFC solution is simpler and prevents typical human errors in data collection and data generation.
With ever evolving movement of profound change in how human interact with machine automation, this upgrade seizes one’s time to write down measurements with a pen or paper.
How to Use NFC Feature on PAL:
Step 1) For cellphones, download NFC reader app or turn on the NFC feature. For computers, connect the NFC reader.
Step 2) Place NFC reader to the PAL device.
Step 3) Download data.
Quick and easy three steps
Measurement Methods in 3 easy steps
Apply 2-3 drops on the prism surface.
Press the START key.
Measurement value and prism temperature are displayed in 3 seconds!
|Light & Compact, 100g. Ergonomically designed for one-handed operation.The innovative design makes it easy to pour out and remove a sample, but difficult to spill the sample||Sample size 2-3 drops.|
|The speedy performance of the PAL is amazing. Simply put a drop of a sample on the prism surface and press the START key. The Brix value ( sugar content / concentration ) will be displayed in just 3 seconds.||High temperature sample can be measured.|
|Protection class of the PAL is IP65. You can rinse off the sample by running water on the sample stage. The design allows the user to easily wipe off the sample. Will float if accidentally dropped in water||Revolutionary new External Light interference (ELI) feature Patented
When intense light penetrates the prism of a digital refractometer, the light waves interfere with the sensor, which may lead to inaccurate measurements. To ensure accurate measurement results, the PAL is programmed with the ELI function which displays the [nnn] warning message when intense direct light is detected. Forming a habit of shading the sample stage with your hand and re-pressing the START key (when the warning message from the ELI function is displayed) will ensure accurate measurement results each time
|The sample stage is designed to keep sample solutions from spilling out.||Calibration with water only.|
|The Automatic Temperature Compensation function of the PAL enables you to take measurement readings regardless of the ambient temperature.||Convenient Storage case.|
|New Digital Hand-Held "Pocket" Meter for PAL-Series Equipped with NFC Data Transmission Function Data history can be accessed by bringing PAL-NFC to any Android devices or PC-linked USB NFC Reader.
