The Tintometer Ltd enjoys a traditional history but an even more innovative future. The company was founded in 1885 by Joseph Lovibond, a prominent brewery owner who introduced the LOVIBOND® colour scale and the first colorimeter ever as a means of ensuring the quality of his beer. By 1893 he had perfected his research and introduced the first instruments. Since then, the company has continued to develop and extend the product range.
Today, the company is bringing Water Analysis & Colour measurement to the next generation. While still recognizing the importance of traditional methods, The Tintometer Ltd is introducing new techniques to bring measurement and quality control to an even higher level, developing creative solutions to ensure the continued reputation of the Lovibond® brand.
Our product portfolio (consisting of Instruments, Test Kits and Reagents) has been developed and is continuously supported by our own R&D department - all in constant cooperation with our customers. The products are certified according to ISO 9001. What matters to us: both instruments and reagents are developed from a single source and meet the highest quality standards. The product range incorporates both visual and automated instruments, reference liquid and coloured glass standards and a variety of precision fused cells
All round the world the highly-qualified and dedicated Tintometer team guarantees optimum equipment for any kind of water analysis. Our research and development department works closely with institutes in Germany, England, Switzerland and the USA.
