Description

Refractometers have been used for measuring the concentration of solutions for more than a century. Their primary purpose is to measure the degree at which light bends as it passes through a medium, and is used in a wide range of applications and industries as a quality control and diagnostic tool.

Laxco Analog Refractometers are designed for simple operation and built to last a lifetime with its all-metal construction. Laxco Industrial Series refractometers have a rugged design and a water-resistant seal.

Each unit is inspected in the United States by a factory qualified technician under a rigid quality control process to ensure its accuracy, and performance.

Key Features:

  • Quickly calibrate the instrument with a turn of a screw, and distilled water
  • Comfortable rubber eyecup blocks out ambient light, and allows for crystal clear viewing of readings
  • Automatic temperature compensation prevents the need for constant re-calibration of the instrument. As the ambient temperature changes, the scale will automatically compensate for the difference in the degree of refraction. This ensures an accurate reading every time
  • All metal construction and water-resistant seal between prism and main body protects and prevents damage to internal objective lens
  • Metal footrest allows the instrument to be set on a flat surface without the worry of it rolling off working surfaces
  • Rubber hand grip is comfortable, easy to grasp. Its non-slip pattern grip reduces that chance of accidentally dropping the instrument
  • One-piece U-shaped metal hinged daylight plate provides durability of frequent opening and closing.Two screws allow the daylight plate to be easily replaced in case of accidental damage
  • Machined hole for hanging the refractometer in a convenient location
  • Portable, easy to use design

BRIX Models:

Laxco Analog Brix Refractometers primary application is to measure the sugar concentration levels in various beverages and foods. Brix models use a larger range of the refractive index scale, which allows them to be used in many other applications such as cutting coolants, flux compounds, industrial fluids, and cutting oils making them a versatile tool.
