- Additional information
Brix refractometer is developed for working with sugar related liquids: (honey, maple syrup, treacle, syrup etc.), to help monitor and control sugar concentrations and so quality.
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, high range such as maple syrup, honey etc.
Requires a known % brix standard solution for accurate calibration or use extra virgin olive oil and set at 71.5 on the Brix scale. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbOE-w_preY
Focus (the the eye end) so that you can read the scale. Requires a known % brix standard solution for accurate calibration or use extra virgin olive oil and set at 71.5 on the Brix scale. Olive oil should spread across the entire surface. Wait about 30 seconds and view under light. Adjust the blue horizon to read 71.5 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.
