Vee Gee STX-3 Salinity Refractometer

Calculated at checkout

Product Description

The STX-3 from VEE GEE is simple to operate and provides quick, precise measurements. The STX-3 features the largest, easiest-to-read scale available with exceptionally clear, sharp figures, screen shading and incredible contrast. If you've ever used a lower cost refractometer, you'll notice the difference immediately. With an automatic temperature range of 50 to 86 F, the STX-3 can be used in outdoor environments without the need to re-zero. Calibrating the STX-3 is very simple with the Zero Ring. The rugged construction of the STX-3 will provide years of reliable use. The optical glass prism is mounted in an all-metal housing which allows the sample and prism to reach temperature equilibrium quickly. The non-roll stand ensures that once the STX-3 is placed on a table or bench top, it won't be prone to roll off the surface. Comes with carrying case and pipette.

  1. High quality refractometer perfect for reefers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2021

    In search for a replacement of my 10-year old refractometer, I decided to try a digital salinity checker. In retrospect, this turned out be a mistake, since my reliance on this device led to a dangerous spike in the salinity of my 120 gallon reef tank. As a result, I decided to go back to an analog refractometer and chose the VeeGee STX-3. Compared with my old refractometer the VeeGee is a Ferrari. It is easy to calibrate and very easy to use. The display is large and is easy to read. Despite the considerable price, you get a quality device, which is all any one can ask for.
