HI, THIS LISTING is FOR THIS UNIT:
SINGLE SCALE BRIX SUGAR LEVEL
Refractometer 0-32% Brix (sugar) model.
Accuracy +/- 0.5%
Refractometer measures the Brix level of your Wort or wine.
Measures Brix: 0-32%
Features ATC (Automatic Temperature Compensation) for accurate readings.
A refractometer is easier and more accurate than a hydrometer for measuring sugars.
This refractometer is for measuring the sugar content of beer and includes an automatic temperature compensation of 10 – 30 degree Celsius.
Simply use the dropper to take a sample of wort and put it on the prism.
Then hold the refractometer up to the light and look through the eyepiece.
Due to the dual scale there is no need convert to specific gravity as the scale measures both Brix and SG
Manual calibration with mini-screw driver provided.

GENERAL REFRACTOMETER INFO
A sugar Refractometer for measuring the specific gravity or Brix of unfermented wort
Works like a hydrometer except you only need a few drops and there is no need to cool a trial jar of liquid before taking a reading. Using a refractometer lets you check the progress of your brew so you can make adjustments along the way.
Apply 2-3 drops to the prism face, close cover and wait 30s. Look through the eye-piece – the line on the screen will show the Brix %

How to Test the Salinity of Water
Salinity can be tested in three different ways:
- Handheld Refractometer
- Conductivity meter
The most important factor when testing the salinity of the water is to understand salinity measurements depending on the type of water you will be testing.
This tool looks like a telescope and is the simplest way to measure the salinity of water accurately. They work by measuring how much light bends or refracts (refractive index) when water is added under a plate, and are most commonly used in aquaculture industries such as aquariums.
How to use it?
- Calibrate it first to get an accurate reading.
- Open the plate to expose the prism.
- Pipette the solution you wish to test.
- Add a couple of drops of the solution being tested onto the prism.
- Close the plate gently.
- Look through the round end of the meter to read the salinity level. You will see a scale, most likely in parts per thousand (ppt) ranging from 0 to 50.
- Record the result.
- Gently wipe the prism with a cloth or tissue.
