eMaple Misco Digital Maple Syrup Refractometer

From Tap to Bottle; eMaple Maple Syrup Refractometer Makes Maple Syrup Testing Easy

Every Drop Counts...

The eMaple Digital Maple Syrup Refractometer can be used at the tree tap or tank to measure maple sap, for pre-process monitoring of reverse osmosis, in the sugar shack to determine when to draw from the boiler, or during bottling and testing.  A refractometer is more accurate than a hydrometer, requires a smaller sample size, eliminates sources of error, is easily cleaned, and reduces the time that it takes to measure maple sap and maple syrup.

The measurement of sugar content in maple sap or maple syrup is not just a matter of convenience; it is also important for controlling syrup taste, product quality, and for legal reasons.  The principle unit of measure the maple syrup producer is interested in is degrees Brix. Brix is a measure of the percentage of sucrose, by weight, dissolved in a sugar/water solution.  In the case of maple sap and maple syrup, 98% or more of the dissolved solids are made up of sugar, so the Brix scale is very applicable to maple syrup measurement.

Regionally, there are different standards for maple syrup sugar content. The range is usually between 66 to 68 Brix.  If a product drops below 66 Brix, there is a risk of fermentation; above 68 Brix, there is a risk that some of the dissolved sugar will come out of solution as the maple syrup cools.

A separate scale for hot and cool maple syrup eliminates the reading drift that plagues other handheld digital refractometers.  Protection against inaccurate readings due to temperature differences, a major concern with refractometer measurement, is assured with nonlinear temperature compensation specific to Maple Syrup.  Temperature compensation is automatic for fluids read between 0 and 75 °C (+32 to 167 °F).  Calibration of the eMaple is automatic and does not require special calibration solutions or tools; they automatically calibrate themselves to water.

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.

NIST Traceable Certified Refractometer Calibrations - The MISCO Refractometer Certified Calibration program provides all the requirements for the confirmation of calibration accuracies for refractometers and for the preparation and control of measurement standards traceable to the U.S. National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST). The intention of this program is to minimize uncertainty of measurements and minimize the risk of refractometers producing results having unacceptable errors. This program is compliant with International Standard ISO 17025.
