Digital Refractometer combines form and function into one compact unit. Featuring a 1.5 second response time, this meter measures the refractive index of wort and converts it to °Plato with temperature compensation. The improved easy-to-read LCD screen displays temperature units (°C or °F) and measurements simultaneously.
Available in an IP65 water-resistant casing and sealed sample well is built to perform under harsh conditions, making it suitable for use in any brewery.
The °Plato scale is a way to quantify the concentration of sugars and dissolved solids in wort. This measurement can indicate the potential alcohol content of finished beer. The conversion of the refractive index reading to °Plato is based on the tables maintained by the International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis (ICUMSA) and the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC).
Designed for wort sugar analysis
Temperature compensation algorithms based on sucrose solution
0 to 30 °Plato range with ± 0.2 °Plato
Alcohol Interference It should be noted that once fermentation begins, ethanol and the residual sugar interfere with each other and prevents an accurate reading of the Brix value of your residual sugar. For this reason, this refractometer cannot be used with finished beer or other fermented beverages. It is designed for use with wort only.
