Refractometer for salt, reef aquarium, seawater, marine
This salinity refractometer is a very popular instrument to analyze and measure the salinity content of reef aquariums, seawater aquariums and other liquids with a salinity content. It is easy to use, accurate and does not require any batteries.
This model is a dual scale salinity or salt refractometer, this means it can perform 2 measurements at the same time. The refractometer will indicate the density (1000-1070) and salinity (0-100%) in parts per thousand. Thanks to its robust and lightweight aluminum design, your refractometer will not rust when it comes into contact with the corrosive water. The rubber grip and soft eyepiece add extra comfort and protection when handling the refractometer.
Using a refractometer is very simple. You place a few drops of your reef aquarium or saltwater on the prism of the refractometer. You close the locking pad and you make sure there are no air or bubbles trapped on the prism. Now hold your refractometer to a natural light source and look through the eyepiece. Adjust the focus by turning the eyepiece left or right. You should see the 2 scales. Exactly where the blue and white line meet, is the result of your measurement.

Take care of your refractometer. Always clean it after use with a microfiber cloth to protect the sensitive prism from scratches. Store the refractometer in the protective casing when you are not using it. If you take care of your instrument, you can be sure it will last for many years.
