Calculator for sugar concentrates dilution

This calculator helps you to determine how many liters of water you must add to the concentrated syrup to get an aqueous solution of proper sucrose concentration.

Example: if 100 grams of 62 °Bx sugar syrup dilute with 540 grams of water we get the solution of 9.7 °Bx.

Syrup (concentrate) sweetness °Bx (grams of sucrose in 100 grams of aqueous solution)
Mixing ratio 1: parts of water

The sweetness of final solution:   °Bx (grams of sucrose in 100 grams of aqueous solution)

Recommended refractometers for concentrate:  

Recommended refractometers for final solution:  

The degree Brix (°Bx)

Degrees Brix (sign °Bx) are used for measuring of sweetness of the aqueous solution. It can be measured by using a saccharometer (hydrometer designed for sugar measuring), by saccharimeter (polarimeter designed for sugar measuring) or better using by a refractometer (you consume only a few drops of solution). If you measure value 25 °Bx it means that in the 100 g of aqueous solution is dissolved 25 g of sucrose. In other words, in 100 g of aqueous sucrose solution is 25 g of sucrose and 75 g of water. That is why is sometimes used the percent sign (%) as a unit because the sucrose content is a sucrose percentage by weight.
