The measurement

The measuring of water content in milk is quite easy. It is done in two steps, when you place a few drops of measured liquid onto the prism, press slightly the cover plate to eliminate possible bubbles as well as air and the light/blue boundary will show you the result value.
For the most accurate measurement results must be respected the reference temperature of 15 °C.

The measurement evaluation

Tip: use our calculator - The estimation of water content in milk

  1. In the first step it is necessary to apply a few drops of undiluted milk onto the prism. We note the result "V1" (e.g. 9 %), we use it later.
  2. In the second step we measure the water diluted milk. We again note the result "V2" (e.g. 7.8 %), we use it in the next step.
  3. We put both previous results into equation X = 11 * (V1 - V2). For example X = 11 * (9 - 7.8) = 13.2 %
  4. The accuracy of results obtained by using this method is ± 5 % of additional water content.
