This Digital Refractometer is a rugged, portable, water resistant device that utilizes the measurement of the refractive index to determine the salinity of natural and artificial seawater, ocean water or brackish intermediates.
This unit eliminates the uncertainty associated with mechanical refractometers and is rugged and portable enough to be used at home, in the lab and out in the field. It is quick and easy to use and can be calibrated with distilled or deionized water.
The refractive index is measured and can be converted into one of 3 popular measurement units: Practical Salinity Units (PSU), Salinity in parts per thousand (ppt), or Specific Gravity (S.G. (20/20)). All conversion algorithms are based upon respected scientific publications using the physical properties of seawater (not sodium chloride).
Temperature (in degrees Celcius or degrees Fahrenheit) is displayed simultaneously with the measurement on the large dual level display along with icons for Low Power and other helpful message codes.
