The MIZA TrHz-22 is the Best Value Transmission HAZE Meter in North America that measures both Haze and Transmittance. The TrHz-22 is our New Improved Version designed with simplicity in mind. This instrument is meant for customers requiring an entry-level value-priced instrument that rivals and exceeds the performance of older traditional instruments costing three times as much. Yet the accuracy and repeatability specifications exceed the more expensive designs. This slim instrument was designed in the vertical position requiring much less tabletop real estate than older style units. The 2018 design is sleek and has the latest advancements in optics. Thus, the MIZA Transmission HAZE meter TrHz-22 model was born with a modern compact tabletop minimal design.

“Transparency” is a vague description of a material characteristic, whether a liquid or a sold. Products require different solutions. Packaging for a meat product in a grocery store should be extra clear or transparent, while plastic bags are semi-opaque to keep its contents private. Transparency involves the combination of reflection, transmission, and absorption of the translucent material. Another characteristic also visible to the human eye is the haziness or cloudiness of a material. Haziness or HAZE can be characterized by the scattering of light. Scattering is also divided into Narrow and wide-angle scattering. Our instrument measures the latter or wide-angle scattering. Wide-angle scattering occurs at >2.5° from the perpendicular to the material. ASTM D 1003 and ISO 13468 measurement methods present different measurements. Note this instrument does not measure liquids in a horizontal position. 

ASTM D1003 refers to two test procedures that cover the evaluation of specific light-transmitting and wide-angle scattering properties. The two test methods under ASTM are Test Method A and B. Test Method A uses a Haze meter while Test Method B uses a spectrophotometer. The better and more accurate test method is A which uses a Haze Meter. These results offer slightly higher value and have greater repeatability. Our MIZA Model TrHz-22 uses the total hemispherical luminous transmittance. This is accomplished by placing the planar product against the entrance port of the sphere which we call the "Haze Port"

Quality Control personnel use these Haze meters to standardize the quality of a product for specification purposes.

ASTM D 1003 uses illuminants A and C while ISO 13468 uses Illuminant D65.

Our Imbotec MIZA Transmission HAZE Meter easily measures all translucent materials. These include plastic packaging film, clear PVC, LCD panels, glass and more.

We also have a model for very small objects and for curved or tubular translucent products. This haze meter is a specialized model and can be made to a custom measurement size. The small aperture can measure a curved sample.

What is Transmission Haze?

Transmission Haze is a measurement of the light scattering characteristics of a material. Haze can be due to suspended particles or contaminants within a sample or fine surface texture & contamination. Haze is measured in percent. Haze is calculated by dividing the Diffuse Transmission by the Total Transmission in percentage. Normally CIE Illuminant C is used for these calculations.

Haze measurement can be used to quantify the optical characteristics of plastics and packaging films.

Meat with hazy packaginghaze film sample

 In packaging applications hazy films may reduce a consumer’s quality perception as packaged products with haze affected films can look cloudy and indistinct.

 For plastics with haze, the visibility of the test material becomes more apparent and the contrast of viewed objects is reduced.
