  Beer Analyzer - WBA-505B

  Beer Analyzer WBA-505B 

The WBA-505B Beer Analyzer can measure the essential parameters for the quality control of beers in breweries.  These parameters include Alcohol (wt% / vol%), Real Extract (wt%), Original Extract(°P), Apparent Extra°P), Real Fermentation (%) and Apparent Fermentation (%).
The sample amount required is about 20mL (degassed beer) and the measurement time is thee to five minutes per sample.
