Brix refractometers, also called sugar refractometers, are commonly used in the food and beverage, agriculture, and wine industries
A refractometer measures the extent to which light is bent (refracted) through a liquid sample. They are commonly used to help identify or confirm the identity of a sample, assess the purity of a sample, or determine the concentration of a solute in a solution.
It is the latter application for which this Sper Scientific handheld sugar-brix refractometer is an ideal measurement instrument for the food and beverage industry. Simply place a drop or two of sample on the prism and read the results. Perfect for measuring sugar content in fruit, fruit juices, wine, milk, soft drinks, and yeast cultures.
Fruit farmers utilize a refractometer to check the sugar content of fruit on the vine to determine the best time for harvesting. Similarly, grocers and other fruit purchasers will use brix values to determine how much they are willing to spend
Ordering information: Refractometer is supplied with a hard carrying case and calibration tool.
