Atago PAL-α General Cooking Refractometer (0-85 Brix)

PAL-alpha-sA 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 is designed to measure almost any sample with a wide Brix range from 0 to 85%. This instrument also features the added bonus of automatic temperature compensation and the ability to test hot samples. These additions make this refractometer ideal for cooking applications as well as general testing.

Measurement of sugar concentrations in cooking can make a huge difference in taste. Consistent ingredients are the key for replicating popular recipes and this refractometer can give highly accurate concentration readings.
