Simple to use. Easy to clean. Accurate Results.
Having an accurate density meter that produces reliable results is only part of the equation. Your instrumentation also needs to be simple to use, easy to clean and offer superior traceability. The DSG Series features a large and vibrant capacitive touchscreen, and intuitive interface based upon the successful GUI used in both ADP Polarimeters and RFM Refractometers.
A powerful internal air pump and integrated desiccant means the DSG Series has no need for external devices for venting after cleaning, so your precious bench space isn’t taken up by needless peripherals.
Peltier Temperature Control
Density measurements are extremely sensitive to temperature, so all DSG models are fitted with Peltier temperature control as standard, allowing for smart automatic corrections to be made, so that you don’t have to. Peltier Temperature Control and precision ventilation ports give rapid temperature stabilisation, whilst synergy between hardware and software give accurate results in under 15 seconds.
Comprehensive software, support, and functionality right out of the box
Easy to use software & intuitive instrumentation for your laboratory
DSG Series Density Meters use Bellingham + Stanley’s proven touchscreen interface. The graphic user interface (GUI) has been enabling users of touchscreen RFM refractometers and ADP polarimeters to quickly and easily take measurements, calibrate, and analyse data for many years. Bellingham + Stanley customers will be instantly at home with the familiar bright and bold design. Users new to the system will appreciate the intuitive layout, and quick access to regularly used controls including “READ” and “METHODS”.

The common design language used throughout Bellingham + Stanley’s high-quality engineering means that the DSG Series Density Meters not only sport a great touchscreen (usable with PPE gloves), but also fast networking abilities, USB functionality for optional mouse/keyboard support and exporting of data (via PDF/.CSV) to USB drives. Large capacity memory means room for over 100,000 readings without the need to purchase costly storage.
METHODS and the ease of measuring
DSG includes 4 common measurement standards and 1 calibration standard. Calibration is performed with air and water and can be verified using accredited CRMs. The in-built barometric sensor checks that the cell chamber is dry, whilst the smart software corrects for pressure, allowing you to focus on sample preparation and other tasks.
METHODS are a simple way to get to the measurements you require, fast. This effective system simplifies the process by means of 4 separate values split between:
- Density + Specific Gravity (SG)
- Density + Brix
- Density + Ethanol %vol/vol + Density
High accuracy and premium features no matter what industry
To facilitate measurement, DSG Density Meters utilise the oscillating u-tube principle. Using a secondary oscillator allows the instrument to monitor and adapt to long-term instrument drifts and environmental influences, meaning calibration can hold and be relevant for a long time. Results are displayed in less than 15 seconds, depending on the mode selected, whilst smart temperature stabilisation helps provide the most accurate results in super-fast time.
DSG Density Meters have been designed with a variety of industries in mind. From edible oils and soft drinks in food & beverage, to raw materials testing in pharmaceutical. Density measurement is key to production control and quality assurance. Used alongside complementary instrumentation from Bellingham + Stanley / Xylem, DSG Density Meters can aid in complete production control workflows. Recommended industries for use include (but are not limited to) pharmaceutical, food & beverage, alcohol (beers, wines, ciders and spirits), as well as industrial applications including acids and biodiesel.
21 CFR part 11 Compliance
Both DSG40 and DSG50 models have been designed with FDA relation 21 CFR part 11 in mind. On-board data protection, electronic signatures (including multi-verification), and compliance without an intermediate PC comes as standard. Complete audit trails are available within the on-board software. Additionally, DSG Density Meters feature a secure “print to PDF” function that may be configured to operate in secure environments in accordance with FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11. Importantly, the DSG Series meets all requirements of British, United States, European and Japanese Pharmacopoeia.
Density Meter Accessories
An extensive range of accessories, spare parts, and density reference standards are available. These include filling syringes, desiccant cartridges, cylindrical stands and a selection of common reference standards and certification for DSG Density Meters. Validation documents are also available.
