Carbonation is a key element to the taste and perceived freshness of a beverage. The complete control of the COcontent during production is essential and ideally monitored continuously and directly inline. Naturally, beverage producers seek to minimize their raw material expenses and run production tightly within specifications. With the Carbo 520 Optical CO2 sensor from Anton Paar you always know the actual CO2 content of all beverages in your production, independent of whether this is beer, wine, soft drink or fruit juice, with or without pulp.


Carbo 520 Optical is easily installed directly inline and entirely maintenance-free, hygienic and robust. It measures the respective CO2  content based on the spectroscopic approach of Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR). That enables a sensor design without any moving mechanical parts, so that wear and tear is no issue. Using Carbo 520 Optical based on this cutting-edge technology the measurement of the CO2  content is highly selective and not affected by other gases in the sample. These sensor characteristics together with the sensor’s high measurement speed and energy efficiency contribute to a reduction in operating costs and ensure smooth production runs.


Carbo 520 Optical extends the existing Anton Paar portfolio for fast and reliable CO2  determination and paves the way to a new certainty in CO2  monitoring throughout the beverage production process independent of the beverage type, solubility, sugar content, color and turbidity. Carbo 520 Optical is available in different versions for intelligent operation in any location.
