Refractometer – Master-series

Description

Simple, hand-held analogue refractometer useful for measuring the brix of sugar solutions, eg in beverages, sauces, fruit juices or honey. A good alternative choice when the water resistant feature is not a priority.

Applications:

  • Measurement of the brix of sugar solutions in food and beverage industry – eg jam, syrup, condiments, drinks and grapes
  • NEW MODEL! Master-53S – milky samples, such as creamy sauces, yoghurt, mayonnaise and opaque liquids in industrial processing
  • NEW MODEL! Master-Agri – growers, farmers, pack-houses
  • NEW MODEL! Master-Honey/Bx – bee keepers, honey distributors

Features:

  • Visibility – efficient use of an analogue unit depends on how easily the measured value can be read. The quality optics ensure that the measurement scale is very bright for a clear view
  • Durability – water resistant, dust-resistant and drop resistant. The only replacement part is the daylight plate
  • Smooth, easy-to-clean design – helps prevent samples being trapped, which could result in contamination
  • Automatic Sample Distribution – spoon shaped tip makes applying the sample very easy
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation – results in improved accuracy
  • Standards – comply with HACCP, GMP, and GLP standards

Calibration can be done with a 10% sucrose solution, 20% sucrose solution or or 30% sucrose solution.

How to measure:

  1. Apply 2 – 3 drops of the sample onto the prism
  2. Close the daylight plate. View the scale through the eyepiece.
  3. Read the measurement value where the boundary line intersects the scale.

Options:

  • Master-T – metal refractometer, general use
  • Master-PT – plastic refractometer, better suited to salty and acidic samples
  • NEW! Master-53S – specially designed for milky / opaque samples that were previously difficult to view a clear boundary line
  • NEW! Master-Agri – optimised for measuring the brix of plant juices from leaves, stems and roots. Can be used to measure measure fruit juices
  • NEW! Master-Honey/Bx – dual scale, measure the water content and brix of honey
