HI-96801 Refractometer General Purpose Sugars

The Hanna sugar digital refractometers are avaliable in 4 models:-

  HI 96801 is a general purpose sugar refractometer
  HI 96802 is for Fructose sugars
  HI 96803 is for Glucose sugars
  HI 96804 is for Inverted sugars

All are rugged, portable and water resistant meters that offer you electronic accuracy for the same price as a mechanical refractometer.

The HI 96801/2/3/4 are optical instruments that employ the measurement of refractive index to display the sugar content in samples. The measurement of refractive index is simple and quick. Samples are measured after a simple user calibration with deionized or distilled water. Within seconds the instrument measures the refractive index of the sample and converts it to % Brix concentration units. Digital refractometers eliminate the uncertainty associated with mechanical refractometers and yet are compact and portable for measurements in the field.

The measurement technique and temperature compensation employ the methodology in the ICUMSA Methods Book (International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis).

Hanna refractometers are supplied complete with (1) 9V battery and instructions.



  Wide Range - All 4 meters cover the range 0 to 85% Brix
  Easy Measurement Place - a few drops of the sample in the well and press the READ key
  Calibrate with Water - Fill the sample well with distilled or deionized water and press the ZERO key
  Automatic temperature Compensation (ATC)
  Battery Operated - operated by a single 9V battery for portability
  Dual-level LCD - The dual-level LCD displays the measurement as well as temperature readings simultaneously.
  Waterproof to IP65
  Quick, Precise Results Readings are displayed in approximately 1.5 seconds
  Small Sample Size - The refractometers are able to read samples as small as 2 metric drops

This product's model number is also known as HI-96801, HI-96802 HI-96803 and HI-96804.
