High-precision production and close contact to the scientific community

Oscillating U-tube: a milestone

A milestone for the company and Anton Paar in general was the development of the first digital density meter using the oscillating U-tube principle in the late 1960s. This revolutionary new measuring principle was invented at the Institute of Physical Chemistry at the Karl-Franzens University in Graz. These density meters – the first laboratory meters introduced to the world market by Anton Paar – mark the beginning of an entirely new chapter in the company’s development.

Strong sales network

Anton Paar’s strong sales network in more than 110 countries guarantees customers rapid support and answers to their application and service queries.
