View Full Version : VeeGee STX-3 Salinity Refractometer

I got a VeeGee STX-3 Salinity Refractometer the other day from BFS...

The Refractometer Calibration Solution Item #: 5069 I got with it said to calibrate to 1.33 / 35....

Hummm 1.33 is high... Over what the meter is calibrated for. So I calibrated to 35.

Is that correct?

Hi Worm - On the right hand scale you should read 35 (ppt) - that equates to 1.026 on the left hand scale (which reads specific gravity). The 1.33 is a refractive index and doesn't show up on either scale.

Ahhhh I did it correct then...


I am at 1.028 then.

Thanks again... Now if I can get my RODI Residential/Reef, that I got at the same time, hooked up this weekend and then make some water for a wter change and hook in the ice machine/frige...
