SKU HI96812
The HI 96812 Digital Wine Refractometer is rugged, lightweight and waterproof for measurements in the lab or field.

This optical instrument employs the measurement of the refractive index to determine parameters pertinent to the wine industry.

The actual measurement of the refractive index is simple and quick and provides the vintner a standard accepted method for sugar content analysis. Samples are measured after a simple user calibration with deionized or distilled water. Within seconds, the instrument measures the refractive index of the grape must. These digital refractometers eliminate the uncertainty associated with mechanical refractometers and are ideal for fast, reliable measurements in the field.

HI 96812 has units of Baume. The Baume scale is based on density and was originally designed to measure the mass of sodium chloride in water. Baume is used in wine making to measure the sugar in must. The HI 96812 converts the %Brix reading to Baume based on the table found in the Official Methods of Analysis of AOAC International, 18th Edition. 1 Baume is approximately equal to 1.8 %Brix, and 1 Baume is roughly equivalent to 1 % alcohol when the wine is fully fermented.
