This refractometer comes pre-programmed with all of the following scales:
Fire Sprinkler Refractometer – Glycerine, Propylene Glycol & nD20 Scales – Percent Volume, Freeze Point °F, Refractive Index – MISCO Digital Refractometer
Fahrenheit model – The Palm Abbe Fire Sprinkler Refractometer is designed to provide the freezing point in degrees Fahrenheit and percent concentration by volume of both glycerine and propylene glycol antifreeze solutions, as well as the refractive index value for ready-to-use premix solutions.
Digital Refractometer Measures Glycerine, Propylene Glycol (% Volume and Freeze Point in Fahrenheit) and nD20 for Pre-Mixes
Keep Antifreeze Measurements Under Control!
The Palm Abbe is a fourth-generation digital handheld refractometer that puts laboratory precision in the palm of your hand. Not just laboratory precision, but laboratory precision for the price of a traditional analog refractometer. It is exactly the kind of bold, cutting-edge technology you would expect from MISCO, the company that pioneered the digital handheld refractometer.
Just place a drop or two of glycerine (glycerol), propylene glycol or ready-to-use premixes in the stainless-steel sample well and press a button. The custom-designed microprocessor delivers a nearly instantaneous readout of glycerine or propylene glycol concentration or freeze point, or refractive index for premixes. Nonlinear temperature compensation is automatic and insures that fluids tested between 0 and 50 °C (+32 to 122 °F) are measured accurately.
Values are easily read on the large dual-line LCD display, even in dim light. Digital readings remove the subjectivity associated with interpreting where a boundary line crosses tiny scale divisions. And, it is so easy to use! The user interface consists of two buttons, one to take readings and the other to step through various menu options.
Calibration is automatic and does not require the use of special calibration solutions, or tools. The Palm Abbe refractometer automatically calibrates itself to water and is ready to use in seconds. No more screws to turn and nothing to adjust.
