Digital Refractometer For Refractive Index And Brix HI 96800 Refractometer HANNA INSTRUMENTS

Hanna's new HI96800 Digital Refractometer measures Refractive Index and displays results in both temperature compensated (nD20) and non-temperature compensated (nD) formats on the dual-level LCD screen. The HI96800's intuitive layout and pinpoint accuracy ensures effortless operation and reliable readings every time. Refractive Index is measured to determine a liquid's composition and assess its concentration and density. It is used by many industries including pharmaceutical, food and environmental, as an important indicator of quality and consistency. The HI96800 also converts Refractive Index to % Brix with the push of a single button.
  • Sample size as small as 2 metric drops (100 μl)
  • Sealed stainless steel well with high-grade optical prism made of flint glass
  • Fast 1.5 second response time for temperature compensated readings

Hanna Instruments new HI96800 Digital Refractometer combines form and function into one compact unit. Featuring a 1.5 second response time, the HI96800 measures refractive index from 1.3330 to 1.5040 with temperature compensation (nD20) and from 1.3300 to 1.5080 without temperature compensation (nD). For added versatility, the refractometer also converts the refractive index to % Brix (0-85%). One-button calibration makes setup quick and easy.
The improved easy-to-read LCD screen displays temperature units (°C or °F) and measurements simultaneously. By pressing the ‘Range’ key, users can easily switch between refractive index (nD), refractive index (nD20) and % Brix readings while in measurement mode. The HI96800’s IP65 water-resistant casing and sealed sample well is built to perform under harsh conditions, making it suitable for use in the field or in the laboratory.
  • 1.3300-1.5080 Refractive Index range with +/- 0.0005 accuracy
  • 0-85% Brix range with +/- 0.2% accuracy
  • Simple one-button calibration
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC) and No Temperature Compensation Settings (NoTC)
