The HI96801 Sugar in Foods Refractometer:

Precision Tool for Sugar Content Analysis

The HI96801 is a robust and portable digital refractometer meticulously designed for assessing the sugar content in aqueous solutions, presented as % Brix. This refractometer delivers precise results with an impressive accuracy of ±0.2% Brix. Its operation is straightforward, featuring only two buttons—one for calibration using distilled or deionized water and the other for taking measurements. All readings are automatically temperature-compensated in compliance with the ICUMSA Methods Book standard, providing results within a rapid 1.5-second response time.

Key Features:

Compact and Rugged Design: The HI96801’s durable construction makes it suitable for both laboratory and field use. Its sealed flint glass prism and stainless steel well are easy to clean, requiring only a simple wipe with a soft cloth between samples.

Minimal Sample Size: This refractometer allows for sample sizes as small as 2 metric drops (100 μl), reducing sample wastage and ensuring efficient testing.

Temperature Compensation: The instrument incorporates temperature compensation algorithms based on sucrose solution, ensuring accurate readings even when temperature variations occur.

Wide Range: With a measurement range from 0 to 85% Brix and an accuracy of ±0.2%, it accommodates a diverse range of applications and delivers reliable results.

Versatile Applications: The HI96801 is ideal for analyzing sugar content in various food products, including fruits, energy drinks, puddings, soy milk, juices, jams, marmalades, honey, soups, jellies, tofu, and condiments.

Easy Sucrose Solution Preparation: The refractometer simplifies the process of preparing % Standard Sucrose Solutions, providing clear instructions for making solutions of different concentrations.

Refractive Index Measurement: This instrument measures based on a sample’s refractive index, assessing how light behaves as it passes through the sample. The linear image sensor, LED light, prism, and lens work in tandem to make precise measurements possible.

Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC): Temperature compensation is crucial for accuracy, and the HI96801 incorporates a built-in temperature sensor and compensation algorithms to align with the ICUMSA Methods Book for sucrose solutions.

Quick, Accurate Results: The HI96801 displays readings in approximately 1.5 seconds, ensuring efficient and reliable assessments.

Dual-Level LCD: The dual-level LCD screen simultaneously displays measurement and temperature readings for enhanced usability.

Stainless Steel Sample Well: Easy to clean and corrosion-resistant, the sample well maintains its integrity over time.

Battery Indicators: Battery percent level is displayed at startup, and a low battery indicator ensures uninterrupted operation.

Automatic Shut-Off: To conserve battery life, the refractometer automatically shuts off after three minutes of non-use.

IP65 Water Resistant Protection: The instrument’s water-resistant ABS plastic casing is designed to withstand both laboratory and field conditions, ensuring its reliability in diverse environments.
