Refractometers are useful instruments that measure concentrations in aqueous solutions. They effectively measure the refractive index of the liquid, which varies depending on the moisture content.
There are many types of digital refractometers for different applications. Industries that use this instrument include food, agriculture, chemical and automotive, for instance.
Whether you need to determine the % Brix of sugar, or measure fructose or glucose, we stock an extensive range of high-quality, portable refractometers that provide fast and accurate results.
Thousands of food and beverage professionals such as winemakers and syrup producers are moving away from optical alternatives to maximise the precision of their readings. Indeed, digital refractometers offer a wider scale and better resolution, among other significant benefits.
No calibration is required for our Milwaukee refractometers. What’s more, the measurement methodology for their devices is recommended in ICUMSA Methods Book.
With over 30 years’ experience in the industry, Milwaukee have made it possible to make the switch from inaccurate visual testing to precise digital analysis.
