The HI-96801 measures the refractive index to determine the % Brix of sugar in aqueous solutions. The refractive index of the sample is converted to % Brix concentration units.

Hanna offers five sugar refractometers to meet the requirements of the food industry. The HI-96800 Refractive Index/Brix, HI-96801 % Brix (sucrose), HI-96802 Fructose, Hi-96803 Glucose, and HI-96804 Invert Sugar digital refractometers are rugged, portable and water-resistant for measurements in the lab or field.

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

HI-96801 Refractometer for General Purpose Sugars information

Hanna's extended description

The HI-98601 is used across the food industry for measuring the concentrations of general purpose sugars in foods.

Quick and easy to use it is ideal for analysing the sugar content in a wide range of food products including fruit, energy drinks, puddings, tofu, jams, honey, soups and sauces.

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-96801 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.
