The refractometer is a very important new tool for the industry in controlling costs and product quality. And in order to know how to read the contents with the use of this equipment, it is achieved when a ray of light passes from a matter to a less thick one from an optical point of view, it changes direction. With a higher point of incidence, the critical value is achieved in which light does not pass from the densest point, therefore when these angles are exceeded, a total reflection is produced, and is automated. All of this is going to depend not only on length, but also on temperature. Therefore, there is a correlation between the refractive index and the Brix, becoming percentage when measuring the sucrose contents.
