- LED Refractometer for Reading Salinity with Calibration Fluid (FACTORY BLEMISH) - Bulk Reef Supply (DISCONTINUED)
Factory Blemish - Bulk Reef Supply Logo was printed upside down, but are 100% functional.
Precise & Reliable Specific Gravity Readings in any Lighting Conditions!
Refractometers are a must-have piece of equipment for any aquarists! Easily and accurately measure the salinity of your tank and with the built-in LED light, your readings will be consistent no matter the type of ambient light source. Each LED Refractometer has ATC (automatic temperature compensation) abilities and will adjust the reading, depending on your water temperature. Just add a small sample of water to the prism, close the cover, and view the reading through the focusable eye-piece. The LED light can be activated by pressing the waterproof button on the top of the prism cover.
- Precise and consistent
- Simple calibration
- Readings in seconds
- Durable and reliable
- Includes FREE calibration solution
Refractometers are one of the best pieces of equipment an aquarist can purchase. It not only ensures accurate measurements of salinity but it is also infinitely easier to use and read.
Range: 1.000 - 1.070 SG
Refractometer Calibration Instructions:
1) Using the dropper place a few drops of the included calibration solution on the prism and close the lid.
2) Looking through the eyepiece, activate the light and turn the eyepiece until the prism is in focus.
3) Screw until the unit reads sg 1.026 (35ppt)
4) Place the cap back on your calibration solution for storage. It is important that the cap is on tight or water will evaporate and ruin the solution.
Note: It is best to calibrate refractometers to the exact specific gravity you will desire. With reef tanks we highly suggest using the included calibration solution to calibrate the refractometer to 1.026 (35ppt). Do not calibrate using RO/DI water as this will not give accurate readings for saltwater aquariums.

So, So By Daniel on 2/23/2019Daniel wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have other ATC Refractometers that have been great and consistent. This is probably the same, but the LED is not bright. I bought this hoping to skip a step when testing, but using my old unit is better, with a light bulb. The quality of this new unit doesn't compare to my original. The plastics are not finished and have rough edges all around the molded parts are really bad in spots. Not the best but will do what its designed to do. Buy an ATC on Amazon that has not been mass produced to fill a company quota. However for the current cost of $20 its hard to beat the calibration fluid alone costs half of that.
Works Perfect! By Brien on 2/16/2019Brien would recommend this product to a friendI have been waiting for a good price on a Refractometer and this "blemish" offered the perfect option. The Refractometer works great and I am very happy with my purchase. Thank you BRS for discounting this amazing item!
Good deal, good quality By Daniel on 1/13/2019Daniel would recommend this product to a friendI ordered this because it was on sale and the 'blemesh' of having an upside-down logo was insignificant. Arrived on time, and I actually received a refractometer that had the logo in the correct orientation. Not sure if it was a mistake or they ran out of the blemished ones. thanks BRS!
Awesome deal By Steve on 12/8/2018Steve would recommend this product to a friendI purchased one because I wanted an LED version but didn't want one for the price.The "blemish" on this is the BRS logo being printed upside down...thats all!It works great and I'm glad I was able to get a great deal on it!It would have been easy for BRS to have sent them back to the manufacturer,but instead they say "let's put these on mark down for customers ".Thanks BRS!
