The Alivion Spark M-20 is a pocket sized laboratory for the rapid determination of the methanol content in liquids containing alcohol. It provides a simple alternative to GCMS for methanol measurement producing results in less than 2 minutes for immediate on site quality control in the distillery. 

Automatic temperature correction facilitates measurement in varied environments. The unit stores 1,000 exportable results and calibration is easy.

Methanol – An Underestimated Danger
In the EU, the USA and other countries, strict guidelines exist for methanol in beverages, hand sanitizers or the air, even small amounts of methanol can be deadly for humans. Until now, laboratory analyses for the detection of contaminants are expensive, time-consuming and require specialised workers.

“We are pleased to integrate the Spark M-20 into our quality management system. For the first time, methanol in spirits can be quantified quickly and efficiently.”
Daniel Z’graggen
Managing Director, Z’Graggen Distillerie.
