Brix Refractometer 0-90% 43017
This brix refractometer is exceptionally simple to operate and provides quick, accurate measurements for the concentration of nearly any aqueous solution.
Easy to use operation consists of placing 1 or 2 drops of sample on the prism, closing the daylight plate over the sample, then looking through the focusable, cushioned-rubber eyepiece for the readings.
Featuring the largest, easiest-to-read scale available with clear, sharp figures, screen shading, and incredible contrast. These features significantly enhance overall accuracy, even when several different operators use the instrument. Has a rubber grip on the body, which blocks the transmission of hand heat to reduce temperature errors.
The small compact size allows refractometer to be used anywhere, the field, plant or lab.
Tool free calibration eliminates the hassle of using a separate tool for calibration. Simply place a few drops of distilled water or liquid standard (R.I. oil or prepared sucrose solution) on the prism, turn the built-in "Zero Ring" until the shadow line is at the correct value of the liquid, and secure the set screw, that's it!
Made from rugged construction to provide years of reliable use. The prism is mounted in an all metal housing which allows the sample and prism to reach temperature equilibrium quickly. A non-roll stands to ensure that once the units are placed on a table or bench top, ensures the refractometer wont be prone to roll off the surface.
Comes ready to use with carrying case, plastic transfer pipet and instruction manual.
