Atago PAL-BX Brix and S.G. Digital Refractometer (0-93 brix)

A refractometer is widely used in the food production industry and is becoming increasingly popular in the beer making process as it provides a quick and easy way to determine the specific gravity before and after the fermentation process. They are useful in maple syrup, honey and sugar production for the quick brix, or sugar content, reading.

Another use is for measurement of industrial cutting oils and liquids. Refractometers have evolved from a simple analog prism to a highly accurate electronic device capable of wide scales of the refractive index, brix or specific gravity. Conversion of one measurement scale to another is a simple calculation of a conversion factor.

This refractometer features measurements in both brix and the refractive index. With the ability to measure 0 to 93% brix which encompasses almost all brix testing and a refractive index range of 1.3306 to 1.5284.

This instrument features a scrolling dual display screen which displays both the temperature and the refractive index or brix reading. It is battery powered and is calibrated with distilled water. This meter requires no external prism and gives a highly accurate reading in only 6 seconds.
