A Refractometer is a precision optical instrument designed to measure the concentration or mixture ratio of water soluble fluids. It measures refractive index, the speed at which light passes through a liquid. The denser the liquid the slower the light will travel through it, and the higher its reading will be on the refractometer. There are four main refractometer types: Traditional Analog Refractometers, Digital Handheld Refractometers, Inline Process Control Refractometers and Refractive Index Sensors, and Desktop, Benchtop or Laboratory Refractometers.
MISCO Refractometer, in business for more than 60 years, is a respected industry leader in the field of refractometry. We maintain this leadership position because refractometers are all we do - just refractometers. Refractometers are not just a catalog item or sideline business for us, they ARE our only business. That's what makes us unique.
Our strategy is simple - we are dedicated to making refractometers useful instruments that are easy for people, not just scientists, to understand and use. We do this by demystifying arcane scientific methods and offering real-world solutions for fluid measurement applications. We pride ourselves on being the information warehouse for the refractometer community.
I am interested in the refractometer. We use triethylene glycol for gas dehydration and I would like to know if this meter will tell us the % water in the glycol. We also use amine Ucarsol 302. The amine mix is 50% Ucarsol and 50% deionized water, will the refractometer check this mix? Thank you,
Looking for a refractometer to test metalworking fluids for grinding at concentrations from 0.5 to 4%, current analog scale 0 - 15% is too large and we cannot see concentration movements - have you got anything?
I am looking for a small, digital refractometer to measure sugar, dextrose, and glucose up to 85 brix in the ice cream manufacturing business. Which is the right model for me?
I need to know the percent volume of my glycol?
