- Additional information
Brix Refractometers are developed for working with sugar related liquids: (fruit juices, soft drinks, wine), to help monitor and control sugar concentrations in foods and beverages.
Whether users are checking the “ripeness” of fruit in the field, verifying product quality after harvesting, or controlling concentrations during processing and packaging, refractometers provide critical information to ensure product quality.

Sugar content verification or determination
Focus (the the eye end) so that you can read the scale. Add a drop of distilled water to the prism, closed the cover avoiding air bubbles. Water should spread across the entire surface. Wait about 30 seconds and view under light. Adjust the blue horizon to zero with a screwdriver or the adjustment nut, depending on the model design. The unit is now calibrated. Dry with a clean cloth or tissue. Add sample and close cover so that there are no air bubbles. Read the content indicated by the blue horizon line. Dry and clean and replace in storage container.
