Portable Hydrometer Density (PHD) Meter

Density/Specific Gravity Meter

ASTM D7777

The Portable Hydrometer Density (PHD) Meter is ideal for obtaining liquid property information such as Density, Specific Gravity, Brix%, on-site quickly and accurately.

The PHD is lightweight and features easy one hand operation. It offers a great value and has a diverse range of scales with temperature compensated density and Specific Gravity (SG) measurement. It is also ergonomically-designed with graphic LCD backlit display for easy reading.





  • Backlit display enables you to perform measurement in a dark place.
  • Clock function equipped.
  • ID code can be entered.
  • Sampling volume and speed can easily be adjusted in one hand. (Patent No. 3330580)
  • It does not matter which hand you use to operate. Status of measuring cell can be monitored even while measurement is going on.
  • Lightweight and fatigue-free design.
  • Capable of measuring samples of up to 2,000 mPa•s of viscosity.
  • Display Items: Density, temp-compensated density, SG, temp-compensated SG, Brix%, alcohol concentration, sulfuric acid concentration, API degree, Baume degree, Plato degree, Proof degree, etc.
  • Graphic LCD shows not only measurement results but also temperature(°C/°F), sample No., auto determination of oscillation stability, auto save/auto output/deletion of data, battery level, etc..
  • Measurement time and operator name can be printed out.
  • Battery life doubled compared with conventional model. Much longer operating time.
  • The viscosity that the DA-130N can sample with the internal pump is up to about 1500 mPa*s.The required sample volume is 2 ml or more.
