sisco digital Brix refractometer integrates brix meter, salinity refractometer, honey refractometer, coolant refractometer, alcohol refractometer, and antifreeze refractometer in one, and has 8 optional measurement ranges of 0~10%/ 20%/ 32%/ 50%/ 80%/ 90%, 28~62%, 45~82% for selection.
Pure Copper Movement
The pure copper movement is the core accessory of the sisco refractometer, which plays an important role in improving the durability and accuracy of the fuselage. The refractometer body is made of aluminum alloy, durable, and resistant to corrosion and dirt.
High-quality Refractometer Prisms
Precision optical prism display, high uniformity, no crack, good transparency, high dispersion, small temperature coefficient, not affected by humidity.
Upgrade the Eyepiece
The telescopic observation eyepiece of the Brix refractometer has adjustable focal length, long service life, clear scale display and more accurate reading.
Temperature Compensation Sheet
High accuracy, with automatic temperature compensation, adopt high-quality temperature compensation sheet to avoid the influence of temperature on measurement results.
sisco digital refractometers are often used for:
- Food and beverage industry: The Brix refractometer can measure the Brix or concentration or salinity of raw materials or semi-finished products and finished products, or online detection of concentration in the production process. Test samples such as cola, fruit juice, tea drinks and other sugar-sweetened beverages, jam, honey, sugar, syrup and other sugar-sweetened foods, condiments, sauces or soups, soy milk, vegetable protein, etc.
- Flavor and fragrance industry: The portable refractive index is measured by a refractometer for qualitative inspection and judgment of purity.
- Textile printing industry: The refractometer can be used for starch determination, fixative determination, organic solvent concentration monitoring (DMF, DMSO, etc.), and slurry concentration determination.
- Chemical industry: The refractometer can measure and monitor the concentration of various organic and inorganic substances, as well as the concentration of cleaning solutions.
- Automobile transportation industry: The refractometer can measure the concentration of battery fluid, refrigerant, and snow-melting agents, such as the concentration and freezing temperature of the refrigerant in car maintenance.
- Metal processing: The coolant refractometer can monitor the concentration of cleaning fluid, cutting oil and cleaning fluid in the electronics industry.
1. Refractometer Operation Flow
- Open the cover and carefully clean the inspection prism with a soft cloth.
- Take a few drops of the tested solution and place it on the detection prism. Then gently close the cover to avoid air bubbles and allow the solution to spread over the prism surface.
- Align light source or bright spot, eyes observe the view field through the eyepiece.
- Turn the adjustment handwheel of the eyepiece to make the blue-white boundary of the view field clear. The scale value of the dividing line is the concentration of the solution.
2. Refractometer Calibration Steps
- Open the daylight plate, and place 2-3 drops of distilled water on the main prism. Close the daylight plate so the water spreads across the entire surface of the prism without air bubbles or dry spots. Allow the sample to temperature adjust on the prism for approximately 30 seconds before going to step #2. (This allows the sample to adjust to the ambient temperature of the refractometer)
- Hold the daylight plate in the direction of a light source and look into the eyepiece. You will see a circular field with graduations down the center (you may have to focus the eyepiece to see the graduations clearly). The upper portion of the field should be blue, while the lower portion should be white.
- Look into the eyepiece and turn the Calibration Screw until the boundary between the upper blue field and the lower white field meet exactly on the zero scales, as shown in the image. That is the end of the calibration process. Make sure the ambient room temperature is correct for the solution you are using (20℃/68℉). When the working temperature of the room or environment (not the sample) changes by more than5℉, we recommend recalibrating to maintain accuracy. If the instrument is equipped with an Automatic Temperature Compensation system, the ambient working temperature of the room must be 20℃ (68℉) whenever the instrument is recalibrated. Once calibrated, shifts in ambient temperature within the acceptable range (10℃~30℃ ) should not affect accuracy.
(Note: The pictures shown in the steps are only as a reference.)
3. Refractometer Use Steps
- Place a few drops of the sample to be tested onto the main prism, close the daylight plate and check the reading.
- Take the reading where the boundary line of blue and white crosses the graduated scale.
- The scale will provide a direct reading of the concentration.
