MA871 Digital Brix Refractometer
The MA871 is an optical instrument that employs the measurement of refractive index to determine the % Brix of sugar in aqueous solutions. The method is both simple and quick. Samples are measured after a simple user calibration with steam distilled water (starter bottle provided with your unit). Within seconds the instrument measures the refractive index of the sample and converts it to % Brix concentration units.
The MA871 digital refractometer eliminates the uncertainity associated with mechanical refractometers and is easily portable for measurements in the field.
The measurement technique and temperature compensation employ methodology recommended in the ICUMSA Methods Book (Internationally recognized body for Sugar Analysis). Temperature (in °C or °F) is displayed simultaneously with the measurement on the large dual level display along with icons for Low Power and other helpful message codes.
Thousands of food and beverage professionals and hobbyists, from chefs and food quality professionals to brewers and wine makers, have moved to digital BRIX measurement from less accurate and less precise optical refractometers.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Anyone who brews beer should find this product one of the best investments they make on any piece of equipment."
"I am in love with this instrument. No more large samples. No more phony readings from badly made refractometers."
"Dramatically improved my commercial brewing consistency & efficiency. Now I can quickly stop my sparge when I get to to my OG."
"I used this for finishing Maple Syrup. I had been trying to determine sugar content using temperature and a hydrometer. I found both very difficult to use. The refractometer was much easier."
The Milwaukee digital BRIX refractometer is temperature compensated with a 0 to 85 percent BRIX range and +/- 0.2 percent accuracy. It is easy to use with simple two button operation and fast with a response time under 2 seconds. Maintenance is a breeze also with an easy-to-clean sealed flint glass prism and stainless steel well.
Key features include:
Conductivity readings are performed by applying an alternate current to the 4-ring probe which creates a variable voltage depending on the conductivity.
