Honey Refractometer with LED light and calibration oil and stone

£19.25 inc VAT

Refractometer – For checking the water content of your honey prior to processing.

With LED light to make viewing easier.

Complete with batteries for the LED light.

Comes in a box with cleaning cloth, pippette and screwdriver for adjusting the scale.

Calibration oil and stone ALSO INCLUDED

If the water content is too high, the honey can ferment in the bucket or jar.

These refractometer (Model  LED-RHB-90) are the specifically for honey

The refractometer measures the sugar content using the Brix scale (ranging from 58-90) which is equivalent to 12-27% water.
One degree Brix is equivalent to 1 gram of sucrose in 100 grams of solution.

Honey should not be processed when the water content is greater than 20% otherwise there is a possibility of it fermenting. Honey is hygroscopic, meaning that it absorbs water from the surroundings.

So when using the refractometer, you want the honey to have a Brix measurement over 80 deg.

Bees will cap the honey with wax when they have reduced the water content sufficiently (17-18% water content). Sealing the cells, stops the honey from absorbing water.

When processing your honey, we also supply:

Uncapping Forks
Stainless Steel Sieves
Settling Tanks
