Product Description

The Hanna Instruments HI 96801 is a portable, waterproof meter that measures the refractive index of samples in order to display sugar content in a substance, displaying results within seconds.

To take a reading, the sample well must be calibrated with distilled or deionized water, followed by a few drops of the sample liquid. A dual-level LCD screen displays the measurement and temperature within several seconds. The meter converts the refractive index of the sample to sucrose concentration in units of percent by weight (%Brix, also referred to as degrees Brix).

The single 9V battery-operated device has Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC), and automatically powers off after three minutes of non-use. The meter has a range of 0 to 85%Brix/0 to 80 degrees C (32 to 176 degrees F) with accuracy + or - 0.2 %Brix / + or - 0.3 degrees C (+ or -0.5 degrees F) and a resolution of 0.1 %Brix/0.1 degrees C (0.1 degrees F). The meter uses the methodology from the ICUMSA Methods Book (International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis). Its dimensions are 19.2(W) x 10.2(D) x 6.7 (H) cm, and it weighs 420 g.

Refractometers measure refractive index, which is the optical characteristic of a substance and the number of dissolved particles in it. Refractive index is the ratio of the speed of light in empty space to the speed of light in the substance. Refractometers are often used in the beverage making process to determine sugar content.

Hanna Instruments manufactures a wide variety of analytical instrumentation, including pH meters, multi-parameter meters, electrodes, chemical reagents and buffer solutions. Founded in 1978, Hanna is headquartered in Woonsocket, RI, with subsidiaries in 32 countries. Hanna Instruments holds many firsts in the field of analytical instrumentation, including a pH electrode with a built-in temperature sensor, an electronic pocket-sized pH tester, and a replaceable electrode pH pocket tester. To ensure the quality of its products, Hanna is a vertically integrated manufacturer and does not subcontract any part of its manufacturing.

I purchased this Hanna refractometer for measuring sugar in maple sap and honey. This spring I used it regularly for two weeks measuring the sugar in maple sap from several sources. The instructions are clear, it is easy to use and clean up. I purchased this instead of a sap hydrometer.

I was skeptical but it just works as it's suppose to.

you do have to calibrate it every time you use it and make sure you clean it well between samples pressing the "read" button until it displays 0 again instead of simply zeroing it out.
but the whole process doesn't take more than a couple of seconds, a couple minutes at most if you take your time or the sample you measured was to thick and/or sticky.

I simply love it for it's simplicity and because it takes out the guessing of the optical units.

I used the instrument to check the brix in my lettuce. I checked my honey and some broccoli to get a reference. I am very pleased with my purchase of an innovative product.

I am purchasing the 2nd Hanna Refractometer. They correlate very well in our application with a CEM moisture analyzer. This seems to hold true even when we are sampling other materials beside pure sugars. We also use other Hanna instruments and have found them to be reliable and priced well. I have had to seek service and they were very good and quick to return equipment on that occasion. I recommend this product.

I bought this for maple sap sugar content. It is a lot easier to use than our hydrometer. Plus, with the digital read-out, it makes it easy when buying sap for other people for an accurate sugar content.
