  • PCE Instruments SG Handheld Refractometer for Antifreeze/Coolants

    # SG

    • PCE-SG is a handheld refractometer used to determine the specific gravity (sg) of electrolyte solution batteries as well as the freezing point of propylene or ethylene glycol-based coolants in degrees Celsius (°C).
    • Maintaining the proper antifreeze concentration in an engine can prevent costly repairs. Thus, this tool is used worldwide by trucking and automotive technicians to ensure proper dilution.
    • This refractometer works well for measuring cleaning products too. The instrument also gives indication of the charge level in battery acid.
    • The ultra-smooth focusing eyepiece provides high-quality optics, presenting an easy-to-read scale on a semi-transparent blue background. Ambient room lighting offers ample illumination to clearly read the results.nly
