HANNA offers four Sugar refractometers to meet the requirements of the food industry. The HI 96802 fructose refractometer isrugged, portable and water resistant for measurements in the lab or field. Each instrument offers a specific analysis to determine accurate sugar concentration.
These optical instruments employ the measurement of the refractive index to determine parameters pertinent for sugar concentration analysis. The actual measurement of refractive index is simple and quick and provides the operator a standard accepted method for sugar content analysis. Samples are measured after a simple user calibration with deionized or distilled water. Within seconds these instruments measure the refractive index of the sample and convert it to percent by weight concentration units (or %Brix for HI 96801). These digital refractometers eliminate the uncertainty associated with mechanical refractometers and are easily portable for measurements in the field.
These four instruments utilize internationally recognized references for unit conversion and temperature compensation and employ methodology recommended in the ICUMSA Methods Book (internationally recognized body for sugar analysis).
Supplied with battery and instruction manual.
