The HI 96811 Digital Wine Refractometer is rugged,lightweight and waterproof for measurements in                   the lab or field. This optical instrument employs the measurement of the refractive index to                       determine parameters pertinent to the wine industry. The actual measurement of the refractive                       index is simple and quick and provides the vintner a standard accepted method for sugar content             analysis. Samples are measured after a simple user calibration with deionized or distilled water.                   Within seconds, the instrument measures the refractive index of the grape must. These digital refractometers       eliminate the uncertainty associated with mechanical refractometers and are ideal for fast, reliable   measurements in the field.

HI 96811 converts the refractive index of the sample to sucrose concentration in units of percent by             weight, %Brix (also referred to as °Brix). The conversion used is based on the ICUMSA Methods Book (International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis). Since the majority of sugar in                  grape juice is fructose and glucose and not sucrose, the reading is sometimes referred to as “Apparent Brix”.
