BEER MONITOR

BEER MONITOR

Application BEER MONITOR is a variant of COMBITEC and allows measuring simultaneously alcohol and extract during the production of beer and beer-based mixed drinks. The original gravity is automatically calculated and displayed by the sensor. Description BEER MONITOR basing on the COMBITEC combines the functionality of both RHOTEC (density measurement) and SONATEC (sound velocity measurement). The instrument is designed for applications requiring maximum sensitivity and highest accuracy. It is easy to operate and maintenance-free. For density measurement the liquid flows through a thin U-shaped tube inside the sensor. Using electromagnets, the tube is excited to oscillate at the resonant frequency. At the same time, an integrated reference oscillator measures the oscillation characteristics. Even the smallest changes in fluid density have an impact on the detected signal and are identified with [...]

PLATO MONITOR

PLATO MONITOR

ApplicationPLATO MONITOR is a variant of SONATEC and allows measuring original gravity of beer in the manufacturing process. Typically, original gravity is determined during beer filtration and in front of the filler.DescriptionPLATO MONITOR is a special version of SONATEC and continuously measures the speed of sound through the product. The instrument is designed for applications requiring maximum sensitivity and highest accuracy. It is easy to operate and maintenance-free. For sound velocity measurement a sound pulse is created by a piezo-element in a sonic transmitter. It moves perpendicular to the product flow towards a sonic receiver where it is detected. Since the distance between transmitter and receiver is known, the sound velocity can easily be calculated by measuring the travel time of the sonic signal. As a specific property of each [...]

RHOTEC ALC-TAX

RHOTEC ALC-TAX

ApplicationRHOTEC ALC-TAX is a variant of RHOTEC and allows measuring alcohol during the production, when alcohol content needs to be determined by a certified instrument for reasons of taxation.DescriptionThe density sensor RHOTEC ALC-TAX continuously measures the content of alcohol. Meeting the requirements of PTB (Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt), the device is accepted and certified by German government authorities. It is easy to operate and maintenance-free. For density measurement the liquid flows through a thin U-shaped tube inside the sensor. Using electromagnets, the tube is excited to oscillate at the resonant frequency. At the same time, an integrated reference oscillator measures the oscillation characteristics.

CARBOTEC NIR

CARBOTEC NIR

ApplicationCARBOTEC NIR is a very precise, optical carbon dioxide sensor for measurement of “true” CO2 content in beer and beer-based mixed drinks. Dissolved CO2 has a major impact on the quality and taste of the product.DescriptionFor continuous measurement of dissolved carbon dioxide in liquids, CARBOTEC NIR is perfectly suited. The instrument is designed for applications requiring maximum sensitivity and highest accuracy. It is easy to operate and almost maintenance-free. The new generation of CARBOTEC NIR sensors is based on Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR) technology. Near infrared (NIR) light is transmitted through a sapphire crystal. The NIR light reflects several times on the inner surfaces of the crystal, while the outer surfaces are in contact with the carbonated liquid. Since CO2 molecules absorb the specific wavelength of the transmitted light, each reflection decreases the [...]

CARBOTEC TR-PT

CARBOTEC TR-PT

ApplicationCARBOTEC TR-PT is a very precise carbon dioxide sensor for measurement of CO2 in beer and beer-based mixed drinks. Dissolved CO2 has a major impact on the quality and taste of the product.DescriptionFor continuous measurement of dissolved carbon dioxide in liquids, CARBOTEC TR-PT is perfectly suited. The instrument is designed for applications requiring maximum sensitivity and highest accuracy. It is easy to operate and maintain. For measuring carbon dioxide, the carbonated liquid flows through the sensor head (measurement chamber). Several times per minute the chamber is closed and its volume rapidly increases. This expansion generates a gas phase in the chamber. The large partial pressure difference of CO2 forces the carbon dioxide out of the sample (liquid in the chamber) into the gas phase. This fundamental scientific principle is described by Henry’s Law. [...]
