Portable Density/Specific Gravity Meter (Make: Kyoto Electronics, Model:)

  • A portable density meter can be auto calibrated with water at different temperatures.

  • The sample is measured with respect to water and calibrated at 15oC.

  • The reading has taken at two different temperatures and the coefficients of thermal expansion are stored in the screen as there is auto thermal compensation in density meter.

  • The final readings of specific gravity of samples are recorded from screen display.
