Whether it is the pharmaceutical, chemical, food or beverage industry, the producers of aromas, scents and essential oils, the petrochemical, metalworking or the automobile industry – refractometers play an important role in all of these industries to provide quality assurance. They determine the refractive index of liquid or solid substances from which you can deduce their identity and quality as well as their concentration in binary or quasi-binary mixtures. It also allows you read the progress of reactions and material conversions.
Refractometers are used in a number of applications – from the determination of the purity and concentration of ingredients of medications to the measurement of the sugar content in food and beverages to the analysis of petroleum oil. They are also the method of choice for the quality control of operating fluids for machines and motors or AdBlue, the synthetic urea solution for the treatment of diesel engine exhaust gases.
