Product Description

The HI 96811 Digital Refractometer is a portable meter measuring the refractive index of samples in order to display sugar content, 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 HI 96811 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 HI 96811 has a range of 0 to 50 %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). It’s dimensions are 19.2(W) x 10.2(D) x 6.7(H) cm, with a mass of 420 g.

Hanna manufactures additional refractometers which measure sugar content in units such as degrees Baumé, degrees Oechsle, degrees KMW (utilized in the Austrian, German, and Swiss winemaking industries) and measure percent alcohol.

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.

Still, works as advertised, seemingly.
Robert A. Lacroix
Also, you need your own pipettes (plastic) as this product doesn't come with any.
Anthony&Jessica
It's accurate scientific equipment that's rugged and easy to use.

With the broad spectrum of refractometers, this one falls comfortably in the middle. The lower-end optical products are harder to use, and less accurate. The much higher end products are all digital and can cost hundreds and even thousands of dollars. For most consumers, gardeners, and even small-scale professional wine and beer enthusiasts this product works great and is a perfect balance of price and quality.

Great device. I really appreciate taking the guesswork or observers bias out the measurements normally obtained from eyeball-driven refractomers. Unit is simple, easy to calibrate, and extremely repeatable. Clear digital display, easy to clean, sturdy piece of equipment.

Hanna Instruments HI 96811 Brix Refractometer 0-50% works well. I am using it for my vegetable garden determining the nutritional value of my food. This instrument helps me defined which practices in the garden are working better than others.

The machine was simple to use and clean. It came with good instructions as well.

With the use of an on-line Brix to SG converter, this tool is critical to my home brewing operation. It's accurate scientific equipment that's rugged and easy to use. No messing around here. It's the best. Lose the hydrometer.

This instrument couldn't be easier to use. We throw it in a vehicle, go vineyard to vineyard and get the information we need.

The good:The instrument is super easy to read, and takes user error out of the equation. Something important to us as many people can be doing the sampling.

The bad: The instrument came out of the box with the little rubber foot pads falling/already fallen off. A little super glue fixed it.

This device is not as accurate as an old-fashioned hydrometer for home brewing beer. Each time we brew, we measure gravity with 2 manual hydrometers, a manual refractometer and this device and compare the results. This device is usually not as close as a manual hydrometer and a manual refractometer.
