Which Meter?

Unsure which of our instruments will meet your specific needs?
Use this guide to determine which of our many products will work best for you or call us!


Refractometers have always formed the base of our business. You can choose from instruments that can measure in refractive index, Brix and/or special industry-specific scales. 
ATAGO has an extensive refractometer range for use anywhere; from in the field to in the lab and everywhere in-between. 

ATAGO’s analog MASTER-53α and digital PAL-1 are industry standards.  Both instruments measure between 0 to 53% Brix. 
Whether you pick analog or digital, can you be sure one of these refractometers will exceed your requirements.   

The PAL-1 features an easy to read and non-subjective digital output which makes taking measurements even easier.

The MASTER-53α features ATAGO’s brightest and clearest optics, making it the stand out tranditional analog refractometer model.


A viscometer is a tool that is used to measure the viscosity of a material.

By measuring the viscosity, the viscometer can quantify the thickness or the amount of internal friction of a material.

(*Viscosity is a quantitative expression of viscousness)
*Some liquids are silky and smooth like water, and neba-ne-ba (slimy/sticky) liquid like honey. The degree of this smoothness or stickiness is called viscosity.

There are many different types of a measurement method for viscometer: Rotational Viscosity Meter (which is what ATAGO use), Falling Ball Viscometer, Viscosity Cup, Line Spread Test, Capillary Viscometer, and Vibrating Viscometer (Visit here to learn more detail for each method).

Features about our VISCO are easy to operate and set up, can measure with a small amount of samples, can use disposable cups for measurement, and can be powered by both battery or AC power supply. 










The VISCO is our portable stand size of the viscometer.
The other option will be the VISCO 895, which gives you slightly better portability since it is lighter weight.

However, both have the same measurement range and accuracy.










The VISCO B(L) is more like a benchtop style, with a wider measurement range and flexibility in adjusting the stand height.


pH meter

A pH meter is a scientific instrument that measures the hydrogen-ion in water-based solutions, indicating its acidity or alkalinity expressed as pH with parameters between the values of 0 to 14.

The pH meter measures the difference in electrical potential between a pH electrode and a reference electrode, and are used in many applications ranging from laboratory experimentation to quality control and safty reasons.

In terms of safety, a pH meter is used as a monitoring device for microbiological control.

pH meters are also used in the chemical and industrial industries. pH controls an important threshold for many industries.

The general environment in which water-soluble oils are used is in favorable conditions for microorganisms (bacteria, yeast, molds) to propagate.

PAL-pH meter is made with the unbreakable electrode, and also with temperature display on the screen.

The other type of pH meter is the tip-type, which allows you to dip in to the samples you want to measure
