The KERN ORM refractometers are accurate and universal maintenance free digital
handheld refractometers.  They are characterized by their easy-using and robustness.

The typical and practical design is suitable for a quick and convenient everyday use.  The large, easy-to-read display with integrated temperature display supports the user to
reliably determine the measurement.

The integrated automatic temperature compensation (ATC), avoids the manual conversion of the measurement. This allows a quick and efficient usage of the instrument.  Rapid, user-friendly calibration of the refractometer is possible at any time using standard commercial distilled water.

The refractometers from the KERN ORM range are protected to international IP65
protection class, against dust and water splashes. After use, you can rinse the
refractometer under running water.  Mean value measurements possible

The following accessory-parts are included:

Prism cover lid
Storage box
1 × AAA battery

Digital measurement of refraction index for universal application

Scope of application: Honey

The following model is particularly suitable for the measurement of the water content in honey according to the International Honey Commission (IHC2002) and “degrees Baumé” to determine the relative density of liquids. Alternatively the display can be switched to show Brix or the refractive index.

The main scope of applications is:

Bee Keeping
Honey Production
