Refractometers are highly precise optical instruments whose function is to determine the percentage of soluble solids in a liquid solution, using the principle of total refraction of light (originated by the type and concentration of the substances dissolved in a liquid solution, for example, sugar), which takes place in the boundary layer between the prism and the sample. Therefore, it can be said that the refractometer measures the density of liquids, the denser a liquid the greater the refraction, the more the sugar content, the higher the refraction index. The portable refractometers are simple, resistant and reliable, allowing us to make measurements in the laboratories or outside, with exact measurements of temperatures, refractive index, density pH and color with a small sample, setting aside reliable results, increasing safety and avoiding errors, in addition to reducing costs and improving the operational safety of the laboratory.

Our best-selling Refractometer

The refractometer is an optical device used to measure the percentage of soluble solids in a liquid solution, this instrument uses the physical principle of total light refraction, which originates by the concentration and type of substance dissolved in a liquid solution. 

This team is responsible for measuring the density of liquids, knowing that the denser the liquid is, the more refractive it will be. We can also say that this sophisticated apparatus is used to measure the refractive index of translucent solids and liquids. This laboratory element uses the principle that ensures that when the density of a substance is increased its refractive index is increased proportionally, for example when sugar is dissolved in water.
