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,
Can i check the glycol water ratio in ice rink using a refractometer? If yes, please tell me which type and also from where I can get your meter.
I need to detect Ethylene Glycol contamination in rain water as it flows through a pipe, in order to detect leakage from a heat-transfer system. I don't need a measurement, simply a yes or no signal. Is this something you can supply?
Can your digital refractometer be used to determine balling (sugars) in distillers mash? The standard has been to use a balling hydrometer. Also would there be one to determine alcohol in the fermenting mash? The max is around 9% by volume.
