All SCHMIDT + HAENSCH refractometers such as the VariRef and all process refractometers are eligible for the determination of the Brix value. Degree Brix (°Bx) is a scientific unit used to indicate the concentration of sucrose in pure water. It correlates with the mass percentage of sucrose in water. One degree Brix equals 1 gram of sucrose dissolved in 100 grams of water. If the solution contains dissolved substances other than sucrose, the °Bx value will only approximate the sucrose content. This type of measurement is industrially used to monitor the sucrose concentration of wine, sugar, beverages, syrups, honey, etc.
