CO2 Measurement Imagine a new Kind of Certainty for Carbonation
Carbonation is a key element to the perceived freshness of a beverage. The complete control of the CO2 content during production is thus essential and ideally monitored continuously and directly inline, as beverage producers seek to minimize their raw material expenses.
The Carbo 520 Optical CO2 sensor from Anton Paar helps to determine the CO2 content of all beverages, independent of whether this is beer, wine, soft drink or fruit juice, with or without pulp. The sensor is easily installed inline and entirely maintenance-free, hygienic and robust. It measures the respective CO2 content based on the spectroscopic approach of Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR), enabling a design without 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.
