The HI-96831 Ethylene Glycol Digital Refractometer is a rugged, portable, water resistant device that utilises the measurement of refractive index to determine the percentage volume and freezing point of ethylene glycol based solutions.

Battery powered – Allows use away from a power source. Batteries are included with all battery operated products.
Water Resistant – Can withstand temporary exposure to water, but should not be submerged or washed under running water.

HI-96831 Digital Refractometer for Ethylene Glycol Analysis information

Hanna's extended description

This digital refractometer eliminates the uncertainty associated with mechanical refractometers. HI-96831 samples are measured after a simple user calibration with distilled or deionised water.

Within seconds, the refractive index and temperature are measured and converted into one of two measurement units; % volume or freezing point.

This meter uses internationally recognised references for unit conversion and temperature compensation for glycol solutions.

Key features
  • Dual-level LCD displays measurement and temperature readings simultaneously
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation for accurate measurements
  • Easy measurement; place a few drops of the sample in the well and press the READ key
  • BEPS (Battery Error Prevention System) alerts the user in the event that low battery power could adversely affect readings.

  • Main benefits
  • Quick, accurate results, readings are displayed in approximately 1.5 seconds
  • Single point calibration with distilled or deionised water
  • Small sample size; can be as small as 2 metric drops
  • Stainless steel sample well, easy to clean and corrosion resistant
