Scientific, Laboratory Equipment & Service

Krüss offers three models in the Abbe refractometer AR series. Abbe refractometers are characterised by their easy handling and minimal sample quantities. These devices allow samples in the form of solids or pastes to be measured just as easily as liquids.

The AR2008 is a robust unit, ideal for applications in harsh environments. The refractive index or Brix value and temperature is shown on a LCD display, with a serial interface allowing measured values (date and time) to be transferred to a PC or printer. The AR2008 has automatic temperature compensation, and a thermostat connection of prisms and a built-in light source for the measuring prism. The unit comes complete with a glass calibration plate, contact fluid, screwdriver and a dust hood.

The AR4 offers readings via ocular. It has an adjustable scale, temperature controlled prisms, and thermostat connections for prisms.

Krüss Abbe refractometers are easily calibrated and in full compliance with the requirements of ASTM D1218.

On request we can manufacture your Abbe refractometer with an individual wavelength.
