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 VIN06 refractometer for the determination of alcohol in fortified wines. What is the process for determining the alcohol - it appears you have to distil the wine before measuring it with the refractometer. How would I do this?
We required refractometer or any other suitable equipment to measure the sucrose in honey with accuracy. Is there any authorized dealer for this product in india? Or, who should we contact to purchase the same?
We have a glycol & battery tester, Model 7084VP. Was wondering how we go about getting it recalibrated. It would only need to be a level 1 calibration. I am working on a controls project that calls out for us to provide an inline refractometer (Model VIP). We are to monitor the glycol concentration in the system and alarm our system if the concentration falls below an adjustable percentage.
We have a PA203X refractometer. When using this to test % PG in water, is it possible to get a false positive at low levels (e.g., 0.1, 0.2)? Does the turbidity of the sample have any effect?
