You may have noticed a few changes around Refractometer Shop lately. As you can see, we’ve been decorating and as part of that we’ve decided to toss out some of our old furniture - but it’s for good reason!
When it comes to Artisan Food manufacturing many people turn to optical refractometers, such as this Brix Refractometer for Jam, as a quality control tool. Refractometers are simple instruments which use the speed of light passing through a sample to determine ‘refractive index’.
“We use a digital refractometer to monitor grape ripeness to make sure we harvest at the optimum time and then we look to balance the pH using a high precision EcoSense® pH-PEN as it is capable of measuring to two decimal places, which helps us to strike the right balance between acidity and sweetness.”
Temperature control when measuring with a refractometer is key to achieving accurate and consistent results. Here at Refractometer Shop this is something we are keenly aware of and that is why we have teamed up with thermometer and data logger specialists, ebro – a Xylem brand, in order to bring you the perfect line-up of complementary products to our handheld refractometer range.
In today’s highly competitive sports arena, world class athletes no longer rely on hard work and determination alone to achieve their goal; sports science is now a key to success and refractometers play a vital role in ensuring optimum levels of hydration.
