Since the measurement range of PAL-2 is Brix 45.0 - 93.0%, it can measure various high concentration samples such as jam, marmalade, jelly, honey and concentrated juice. The International Protection class of PAL-2 is IP65, so it can clean thick samples under running water. If you measure boiling jam or marmalade, we recommend PAL-H
