HI-96811 Refractometer for wine 0 to 50% Brix range information

Hanna's extended description

The HI-96811 is used across the wine industry for measuring the concentrations of sugars in wine.

This digital wine refractometer is rugged, lightweight and water resistant for measurements in the lab or field.

Priced inexpensively does not mean a compromise on accuracy, the Hanna refractometer offers all the benefits of high precision digital technology at the same price as a mechanical model.

The HI-96811 measures the refractive index to determine the % Brix of sugar in aqueous solutions. The refractive index of the sample is then converted to % Brix concentration units.
