This wide range Brix scale hydrometer has uses in many industries and applications. Typical uses for this hydrometer include testing of Fruit Juices, Soft Drinks, Industrial Fluids, Wine / Beer, and Sauces.
The Brix scale is calibrated to the number of grams of cane sugar (sucrose) contained in 100g of water solution. In addition to sugar levels, the Brix scale is widely used to show the concentration percentage of any soluble solid in a water solution. The soluble solids content is the total of all the solids dissolved in the water, beginning with sugar, salts, protein, acids, etc. The Brix reading is the value of the sum total of the dissolved solids. For example, the weight percent concentration of an aqueous solution of ferric chloride can be directly determined using a Brix hydrometer.
