The HI 96785 portable microprocessor analyzer measures the percent light transmittance of honey compared to analytical reagent grade glycerol. The transmittance value allows identification of the honey Pfund grade. The instrument directly displays the measurement result expressed in mm Pfund.

Measurements are made using matched square optical cuvettes having a 10 mm light path.

Why this instrument is so important

The natural color of honey presents many tonalities: from straw yellow to amber, from dark amber to almost black with a hint of red. The color of untreated honey originates from the botanical varieties used by the bees: for this reason, its coloration allows one to commercially identify the original floral type.

In addition, the color of honey tends to darken with age or change according to the method of conservation or production used by beekeepers, (for example: the use of old beehives, contact with metals, the temperature of conservation, exposure to light, etc.). The classes of color are expressed in millimeters (mm) on the Pfund scale, compared to an analytical standard scale of reference on the graduation of glycerin.
