Hand Held Refractometer MASTER-53M

MASTER-53M are a good alternative choice when the water resistant feature is not a priority and the Temperature Compensation will be carried out manually. Not equipped with the Automatic Temperature Compensation feature. The MASTER-53M is made of metal, and the MASTER-53PM is plastic. The specifications are exactly the same. For salty and acidic samples, choose the plastic body, MASTER-53PM. For the model with Automatic Temperature Compensation please choose MASTER-53α.

The Atago 2353 MASTER-53M is a hand-held, portable refractometer with a Brix scale that measures in the 0.0 to 53.0% range, has a spoon-shaped tip for automatic smooth sampling (ASD), manual temperature compensation, and a ridged outer shell. A Brix refractometer measures the refractive index of a solution in a sample, converts it to sugar concentration in units of percent by weight (% Brix, also known as degrees Brix), and displays the results. Hand-held refractometers, also known as sugar meters, concentration meters, or Brix meters, are commonly used in the culinary, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, educational, geological, chemical, and ecological industries, and for water-testing applications.
