Sensors Optical Process Sensors Fulfilling Hygienic Requirements in Beverage Production
Processing beverages is a sensitive thing. To control the entire process, many parameters have to be observed. This requires fast, accurate, and reliable sensors which deliver information continuously throughout the process to react in time in case of any deviations.
In addition, these sensors must not interfere with the process and the product. To ensure that the use of sensors has no negative effects on the product, hygienic design is a must-have requirement. Optical process sensors from Anton Paar fulfill hygienic requirements perfectly.
As a world leader for process instrumentation in the beverage industries Anton Paar takes the next step in measurements. With short measuring intervals of seconds any process can be kept under control. All optical process sensors from Anton Paar are certified hygienic (EHEDG Type EL Class I). As pulp, solids, and turbidity do not influence the measurements, the sensors are suitable for beer, soft drinks, and wines:
- Carbo 520 Optical for measuring CO2 concentration,
- Oxy 510 for measuring dissolved oxygen (DO) in the trace and wide ranges,
- L-Rix 510 refractometer for determining Brix.
Anton Paar offers not only single sensors but also complete process analyzers to suit user-specific applications.
