VCO consumers look for a colorless and clear oil.  And manufacturers make effort to ensure that VCO is colorless and clear.  A spectrophotometer is used to check the color and clarity of VCO.

Konica Minolta Spectrophotometer CM-5 measures color.  VCO is placed in a cuvettee and positioned in the transmittance chamber to measure color and clarity.  Color can be numercially expressed in the CIE L*a*b* or CIEL*C*h color space.   A general color tolerance adopted by manufacturers is color difference ΔEab 0.5.
