  • brix to percent

    Hi,
    We have access to a hand held refractometer to test aircraft deicing (type 1) fluid
    measuring in Brix. If this refractometer were to be used to to test for anti ice additive in aviation turbine fuel (kerosene base), What would the conversion be to convert from
    Brix to percent?
    (Anti ice additive is measured in percent)

    Brix is a scale (originally a specific gravity scale) giving percent sugar in a water solution. People have correlated index of refraction to the same scale (for sugar water). For deicing additive in kerosene, you should probably use something that actually gives index of refraction, and run a set of experiments at various concentrations.

    If anyone has done so, and published results, I have no idea where to look for them. Maybe somebody else does.
