Butyrometers are used to determine the fat content of dairy samples. The product is treated with concentrated sulphuric acid to disrupt the emulsion. The resulting mixture is centrifuged in the butyrometer and the fat content read directly off the scale. These butyrometers are manufactured to Irish Standards, which differ from BS.696 both in the sample sizes used and the assumed density of fat.
