  • Does this product come with a warranty?

  • All devices from Felix Instruments – Applied Food Science come with a 12- month warranty at the point of sale. The warranty covers repairing and replacing defective parts of the instrument that were manufactured directly by Felix Instruments. The warranty does not cover wear and tear, neglect, misuse, accident, or excessive deterioration. Further, unauthorized repair and alteration by an unauthorized party voids the warranty. More information can be found in the operation manual of your instrument.

  • Is the Produce Quality Meter waterproof?

  • The Produce Quality Meter is not designed to be waterproof and should not be used underwater. The Produce Quality Meter is designed to be water-resistant. Use in light rain is fine, however, there are electronics inside of the Produce Quality Meter that can be damaged from water entering the instrument, so it is not recommended to use the Produce Quality Meter during heavy rainfall.

  • What are the operating conditions of this product?

  • The recommended operating temperature range for the Produce Quality Meter is 0 – 50° Celsius.

  • How do I determine model quality?

  • Several factors should be viewed when assessing the quality of a model. Read more here.
