Honey Refractometer


The VEE GEE Scientific HMX-1 Handheld Honey Refractometer with ATC features three scales for Honey Moisture (Water Content), Brix, & Baume. It is the perfect refractometer for measuring honey, maple syrup, molasses, and other substances with a high sugar content. 

This industrial-grade honey refractometer features the largest, easiest-to-read scale available with clear, sharp figures, screen shading and incredible contrast. This industrial-grade honey refractometer also comes with a rubber grip on the body, which blocks the transmission of hand heat to eliminate temperature errors.

The patented "Zero Ring" eliminates the hassle of using a separate tool during zero calibration. Simply place a few drops of distilled water on the prism and turn the "Zero Ring" until the scale is zeroed and secure the setscrew...that's it!

The rugged construction of this premium Honey Refractometer will provide years of reliable use. The optical glass prism is mounted in an all-metal housing which allows the sample and prism to reach temperature equilibrium quickly. The non-roll stand ensures that once this honey refractometer is placed on a table or bench top, it won't be prone to roll off the surface.

Each order comes with a 5-year warranty & includes a zippered vinyl carrying case, plastic transfer pipette, and instruction manual.

Used many different brands, this is best!

I have been using Refractometer devices for decades of different brands. This is the easiest to read of any I've used.

Worth the price

Heavy well built with glass optics. Other cheap refractometers are not nearly as durable. Overall, totally worth the extra cash for this high-quality refractometer.

Excellent Refractometer!

Significant quality difference between this refractometer and the cheap alternatives out there. Definitely worth it!
