PA202X and PA203X Misco Palm Abbe Digital Beer Refractometer

Whether you are a beer chemist working for a multinational brewery, or a passionate brewer crafting one-of-a-kind beer in your own home, the goal of the MISCO Digital Beer Refractometer is to help you by providing the most accurate possible beer measurements from start to finish.

The MISCO Digital Beer Refractometer is not just a repurposed Brix refractometer. MISCO Pro-Brewing Scales™ are scientifically derived from a beer model with a complex sugar profile, influenced strongly by maltose, and specific to wort. As there is very little sucrose in wort, measurements and temperature compensation are naturally much more accurate than sucrose-based Brix refractometers. Furthermore, because the refractometer is made specifically for beer, the user no longer needs to use a refractometer correction factor when plugging dissolved solids readings into beer calculators.

Fast, convenient, and easy to use, the MISCO Digital Beer Refractometer requires only a fraction of the sample size required by traditional hydrometers. Simply place a drop or two of wort in the stainless steel well and press a button. The beer refractometer delivers a nearly instantaneous digital readout on a large backlit LCD display. The digital readout removes the subjectivity associated with interpreting where a boundary line crosses tiny little scale divisions.

Nonlinear temperature compensation is specific to beer, not sucrose, and automatically ensures that fluids read between 10 and 40 °C (50 to 104 °F) are measured accurately. Calibration is automatic and does not require the use of special calibration solutions or tools. The beer refractometer automatically calibrates itself to water and is ready to use in seconds. No more screws to turn and nothing to adjust.

MISCO PALM ABBE RUBBER ARMOR JACKET

Adding a Rubber Armor Jacket to a Palm Abbe refractometer increases its durability and provides a better grip.  Made of high-grade silicone rubber, the Rubber Armor Jacket is custom fit and will help protect your Palm Abbe from minor bumps and scratches.

Custom contoured bumpers provide a soft, firm grip while also adding additional shock protection.  The Rubber Armor Jacket is soft to the touch and fits the Palm Abbe like a glove.  It is easily slid over the refractometer and does not have to be removed before use.

The durable jacket is tear and chemical resistant and weighs only 1.8 oz. (51 grams).  There is even a hole on top for a carabiner (included) so that you can hang the Palm Abbe refractometer from your belt loop.  The form-fitting Rubber Armor Jacket fits the Palm Abbe PA201, PA202, and PA203 series instruments and comes in three colors (black, gray, and safety orange).

Although the Rubber Armor Jacket is not guaranteed to completely protect your instrument from damage due to shocks and impacts, it does provide an additional layer of protection and provides a better grip to help you avoid dropping it in the first place.

Order one today and get a better grip on your refractometer!
