Straightforward, transparent and in real-time – that’s what characterizes the new Incyte Arc sensor from Hamilton Bonaduz. It will be shown to brewers for the first time at the Brau Beviale in hall 6, booth 209.
The robust real-time measurement of viable yeast cells provides reliable measurement values that are not affected by dead cells being present and other factors, states the company.
“In conversations with brewers, we were often told that, due to limited data about cell counts, difficulties in yeast management occur quite frequently. As a consequence fermentation times may vary significantly, or the flavour profile of the beer might diverge. By using Incyte Arc yeast propagation can be optimised, and consistent, reproducible yeast pitching can be achieved. Monitoring and control is done via the process control system, and in parallel with the help of the Arc Air software and mobile devices”, says Knut Georgy, Senior Market Segment Manager Process Analytics at Hamilton Bonaduz.
For the optical oxygen measurement, Hamilton will be exhibiting the proven Visi Trace DO sensor, which impresses with reliable and precise measurement results in the low ppb area. In addition, it compels with a short response time, so that changes can be detected quickly, and accurate measurement values are at the customer’s disposal within a very short time, adds the firm.
The oxygen sensitive luminophore is stabilised against chlorine and chlorine dioxide and thus survives significantly more cleaning cycles. For mobile use, the dissolved oxygen device Beverly is ideal for use with the Visi Ferm DO optical dissolved oxygen sensor. It can be used anywhere in the brewing process and allows simple and quick quality control, opines the company. Robust design, easy operation and maintenance make it ideal for breweries.
