    I have the Deltec Refractomer...im happy with it..well built.

    only wished it accomodated for the lower end of the salinity range as well to help with hypo salinity treatments.. if i recall correctly the Deltec Refractometer ends at 1, 015..might be mistaken..will check later

    I did not know that Deltec had a refractometer. :p No worries. :thumbup: D-D are also the Deltec marketers

    D-D have had 2 different refractometers.

    The first was a D-D ATC refractometer in a blue vinyl case measuring a sg ranging from 1,000 to 1,070 @ 20c

    The newer D-D H2Ocean refractometer are specifically calibrated for sea water and measure sg 1,015 to 1,030.

    The newer D-D H2Ocean refractometers are specifically calibrated within this range to provide accuracy at the important part of reef keeping sg range. D-D refractometer is also calibrated to read Salinity.
