Application areas of refractometers
Refractometers are used as universal detectors in the investigation of liquids. They are an integral component of food analysis. For example, refractometers are ideally suited to investigate oils or fat, sugar, and sugar-containing substances. Beer and alcoholic beverages belong to the material class which can be investigated by refractometry as well as laboratory chemistry.
