Milwaukee MA885 Digital Brix / °Oechsle (°Oe) / °KMW (°Babo) Refractometer

The Milwaukee MA885 digital Brix / °Oechsle (°Oe) / KMW (°Babo) refractometer is temperature compensated with a 0 to 50% Brix / 0 to 230°Oechsle (°Oe) / 0 to 42°KMW (°Babo) range.  It has an accuracy of ± 0.2% Brix / ±1°Oechsle / ± 0.2°KMW.  It is easy to use with simple two button operation and fast with a response time under 2 seconds. 

Maintenance is also a breeze with an easy-to-clean sealed flint glass prism and stainless steel well.  The MA885 eliminates the uncertainty of optical refractometers by providing an accurate digital readout.

Those in food and beverage, from chefs and food quality professionals to brewers and wine makers, have moved to a digital Brix / °Oechsle (°Oe) / °KMW (°Babo) meter for measurement from less accurate and less precise optical refractometers.


  • Fast, accurate results with digital dual level LCD readout
  • Easy measurement with just 2-3 drops of sample and results in less than 2 seconds
  • Simple one-point calibration using distilled or deionized water
  • Easy-to-clean stainless steel sample well, unit rated to IP65 as "dust tight", and protection against water jets
  • Battery percent level indicator with automatic shut-off (batteries included)
  • Ideal for winemakers, brewers, syrup producers, food producers and many other applications
  • The conversion used is based on the ICUMSA Methods Book (International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis)
