PCE-5890 refractometer for beekeeping
measures sugar content, water content and baum of honey

With the PCE-5890 refractometer for beekeeping can accurately determine the water and sugar content of honey. The refractometer has a triple scale which allows the user to view all the parameters at once. Honey is a sweet substance produced by bees taking nectar and other liquids with sugar content that are found in plants and the enrich and transform them with substances contained in their bodies. This substance is stored in beehives to be matured. Honey can be found either as a liquid, somewhat like a paste or crystalised.
The refractometer should be tested at least once a year before that start of the beekeeping season. To take a measurement a reference solution should also be used. The beekeeper would be the person in charge of taking the measurement. (See: Use and maintenance of a refractometer). Before harvesting the honey, its water content should be <17%. The device is capable of temperature conpensation. If you are looking for a different type of refractometer click here. On the other hand you can see another type of refractometer can measure the potential alcohol in unfermented grape juice.
