- Small size for mobile use
- Automatic temperature compensation
- High resolution of the scale areas
- Robust and compact design
- Easy calibration and adjustment
Hand refractometers are barely bigger than a torch and can be used anywhere in mobile applications. They are especially easy to use, very robust and require no batteries. The devices differ mainly in the selectable scales, e.g. for the determination of the salinity, water content in honey, serum protein content, Oechsle, Brix and potential alcohol content as well as ethylene- and propylene glycol content. No manual conversion is required thanks to the scales and application errors are ruled out.
The majority of our handheld refractometers are equipped with an automatic temperature compensation. The measured values are therefore already corrected to 20 °C when taking a reading. For a consistent measurement accuracy, we recommend to calibrate the devices daily with distilled water; you can use the provided calibration bodies and contact fluids for the adjustment.
