With our RHS-10ATC refractometer you can determine fast and exactly the content of salt and the specific weight. So you can use this refractometer for the measurement of seawater and all kinds of concentrated salt solutions for example in the food industry however likewise within the range of pisciculture plants and private seewater aquaristic. The offered refractometer offers a maximum of precision and control comfort due to its integrated automatic temperature equalizing system (10-30°C) and twin scale.




The scale shows density (1,000 to 1,070) and content of salt (0-100%) in parts per thousand. It is manufactured in a very stable kind with metal housing and plastic-encased grasp. The equipment achieves a high accuracy of (+/- 0.001). For the calibration of the refractometer simply distilled or osmose water is used.
