What is the standard for density meters?

The accepted units of measurement for density according to ASTM are kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m3, SI unit) or grams per milliliter (g/mL).

What is the range of the density meter?

What is the difference between a hydrometer and a density meter?

Unlike digital density measurement methods, a hydrometer measurement always requires a separate temperature measurement on the sample.

Some hydrometers have a thermometer already integrated. The measured result and temperature are used to manually search for the corrected value in a given table.

What to look for when buying a Density Meter?

Purchasing considerations for density meters include the state of the material to be tested, the operating temperature range,

the unit size (benchtop, portable), and the capacity/range of volume that can be measured.

What are the different types of density meters?

Density meters come in many varieties. Different types include nuclear, coriolis, ultrasound, microwave, and gravitic.

Each type measures the density differently. Each type has its advantages and drawbacks.
