Sucrose Solutions are an extremely easy to use medium for verifying and calibrating refractometers measuring in the Brix scale, as no special consideration is required when testing instruments at ambient temperature fitted with sucrose temperature compensation (ATC). Sucrose Solutions are typically used in the food, beverage and sugar industry.
Sucrose Solutions are manufactured on a %weight/weight basis and are calibrated in accordance with EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005. A number of concentrations are available between 0 and 60 °Brix, all being traceable to NIST and ICUMSA.
Sucrose Solutions are supplied in 15ml plastic dropper bottles complete with a Certificate of Calibration but may also be supplied in a larger quantity for high volume users or for customers wishing to verify the performance of density meters operating in the °Brix scale.
The Certificate of Calibration gives values for sucrose in % weight/weight, °Brix and refractive index as well as giving detail about traceability and uncertainty.
Sucrose Solutions – Supply Contracts
As Sucrose Solutions have a limited shelf life of 6-weeks, they must be purchased at the time of requirement. If a frequent calibration regime is operated, the administration cost of issuing purchase orders every time can be relatively high. Many users therefore choose to take out a supply contract on a single order that ensures trouble free, regular delivery over a twelve month period.

the Sales Team at Bellingham + Stanley to discuss the options.
