Battery Coolant Refractometer measures the freezing point of automotive coolants in their current concentration as well as battery charge.
Both ethylene glycol and propylene glycol antifreezes can be measured, on separate scales. Battery charge is measured on a third scale using just a few drops of battery electrolyte solution (battery acid). The specific gravity of the battery acid is displayed together with a reading of RECHARGE, FAIR, or GOOD. Place a drop or two of a sample on the prism and read the results.
Sper Scientific portable refractometers work in ambient light with no battery or other power source necessary. A refractometer measures the extent to which light is bent (refracted) through a liquid sample. They are commonly used to help identify or confirm the identity of a sample, assess the purity of a sample, or determine the concentration of a solute in a solution. They can be used in labs, on production lines, in the field or anywhere. Simply place a drop or two of a sample on the prism and read the results immediately. With reasonable care, their reliability, precision, and optical performance will last forever. Sper Scientific 300014 Battery Coolant Refractometer Measures the freezing point of automotive coolants in their current concentration as well as battery charge. Both ethylene glycol and propylene glycol antifreeze can be measured.
