This refractometer is more accurate and easy to read than a hydrometer, requires a smaller sample size, eliminates sources of error, is easily cleaned, and reduces the time that it takes to measure maple sap and maple syrup.
The eMaple Digital Refractometer from MISCO has a range from 0 to 85 Brix and was designed specifically for the maple syrup industry. The eMaple refractometer features two scales. The two scales allow you to take measurements at any time regardless of whether the sap or syrup is hot or cold.
The large dual-line LCD display is easily read, even in dim light, and removes the subjectivity associated with interpreting where a boundary line crosses tiny scale divisions. The user interface consists of two buttons, one to take readings and the other to step through various menu options.
Uses of the Misco Refractometer:
- Measuring sugar levels at the tree tap or in your bulk tank
- Pre-process monitoring of reverse osmosis
- Determining when to draw maple syrup from the evaporator
- During maple syrup bottling or testing
How it Works:
Place one or two drops of maple syrup or maple sap, on the refractometer measuring surface.
Close the cover.
Wait 30 to 60 seconds and then press the GO button.
The temperature-compensated reading will appear on the large, easy-to-read, 24-character text display.
The Virtually Indestructable Case:
The rugged Proof-Case is water-proof, crush-proof, dirt-proof, dust-proof, drop-proof, rain-proof, snow-proof, sink-proof, even goof-proof. It is perfect for providing an additional level of protection when you use your Misco eMaple Refractometer in demanding environments.
This virtually indestructible case has a fitted foam insert that cushions the refractometer in the event of rough handling. Two heavy-duty latches secure the lid against an integral O-ring providing a waterproof seal to 100 feet (30.5 meters) under water.
