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.
Hi, I’m interested in purchasing a refractometer, but I am not sure which type is suited to my needs. I plan to use it in order to verify concentrations of Urea concentration. The temperature of the solution will be 35 degrees Celsius, and I want to use high concentrations, 6M-8M Urea. Can you please advise as to which device is best suited to my needs?
Can you please kindly advise us if your company manufactures a refractometer with a range of 1.3330 – 1.3340 on the standard refractive index scale and/or 0 to 5 on the Brix Scale.
My Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer reads "Temp. Stable." What does this mean?
I need a refractometer to check Glycerin, and possibly propylene glycol. What handheld palm abbe would be best for me? The PA202 or PA203 Will the PA202 measure glycol? Does the pa203 come with pre-installed scales or custom scales for each use? My application is for antifreeze. Fahrenheit readings please. Please advise.
