Description

Glass salinity hydrometer used to determine the % of Sodium Chloride in a solution. Also known as a brine hydrometer, a salimeter is useful in water testing, food and beverage production and aqua culture.

  • NaCl Range: 0 to 100%

  • Subdivision: 1.0%

  • Length: 265mm

  • Units: 1 Hydrometer


Hydrometers used for testing NaCl solutions (a.k.a. salimeters, salometers salinometers) are typically available in two different styles, percent saturation (0 to 100%) and percent by weight (0 to 26.5%). Both hydrometers measure exactly the same range of overall concentration for NaCl solutions; the results are simply expressed in two different scale units.

The scale for NaCl percent by weight has a range of 0 to 26.5%. The high point of this range, 26.5% by weight, is the saturation point of NaCl within water. For instance, the highest concentration of dissolved NaCl that's possible in a 100g sample of brine is 26.5g of the total solution. On the other hand, the scale for NaCl percent saturation has a range of 0 to 100%. This measures the extent to which a NaCl solution is to reaching total saturation. Therefore, if a NaCl solution has reached 26.5% by weight it can be said that it's 100% saturated.

NaCl % Scale Conversion
% by Weight @ 60°F = % Saturation @ 60°F/3.7736
% Saturation @ 60°F = % by Weight @ 60°F x 3.7736
