THE MR series refractometers are precision optical instruments used for measuring concentrations of Brix, Salinity, Honey, Alcohol, Serum, Grape and Coolant in aqueous solutions. They work using the principle of light refraction through liquids.
When passing light through a liquid, the refracted angle will be shown on the scale, determining the amount of dissolved solids in the liquid.
The refractometers are very simple to use; simply place one drop of your sample on the prism and read the results on the scales immediately.
They have adjustable focus and they provide direct readings and can measure concentrations of all kinds of solutions such as: fruit juices, beverages, wine, jam, honey, milk, salt, water, brine, canned foods, cleaning fluids, battery fluids, antifreeze etc.
Models with automatic temperature compensation (ATC) are suitable for applications where the temperature of the sample varies.
The Milkwaukee Meters range covers a wide range of applications. The Milwaukee MR series of refractometers has been developed for working with sugar related liquids of fruit, milk products, yeast cultures, fruit juices, soft drinks, wine etc., to help monitor and control of sugar concentrations in these foods and beverages.
These instruments can be used for checking the ripeness of fruit in the field, verifying product quality after harvesting, or controlling water concentrations during processing and packaging.
Refractometers provide critical information to ensure product quality. They are also widely used for controlling the concentration of various industrial fluids cutting lubricants, flux rinsing compounds, firefighting foam or other water based industrial products.
All refractometers are supplied with the correct calibration fluid and reference block where appropriate.
