Yellowness is Measured In-line with one Compact Sensor
In a modern brewery, more and more quality related parameters are measured directly in the process. Benefits of such real-time measurement data are better plant control and optimization of several process steps without time delay. Also, for quality documentation purposes and charge traceability charts, analytical in-line data are of paramount importance. Visual parameters such as beer brightness and beverage color are evaluated by the quality-conscious consumer even before he starts to drink, and can influence his purchase decision. Applications Beer filtration and filling The brightness of a beer – the absence of turbidity – is typically measured in EBC (European Brewery Convention) or ASBC (American Society of Brewing Chemists) units. In filtered beers the turbidity is typically smaller than 1 EBC, which equals 69 ASBC. Turbidity is directly measured in the outlet of a Kieselguhr or membrane filter, and in filling lines. In a dual scattering angle system both 90° ...

The Lower the Oxygen the Better the Beer
Oxygen in beer reduces shelf life and can affect flavor. Advanced optical measurement and sensor diagnostic technologies ensure you are keeping oxygen to a minimum, simply and dependably. Minimizing oxygen Oxygen in the brewing process is monitored because of its importance on the quality, taste and shelf life of the beer. After fermentation, beer is close to being oxygen free and maintaining this very low oxygen level is important for quality assurance. Therefore O2 uptake during the following separation, filtration, storage and filling processes has to be minimized. To reduce the risk of contamination, permanent and precise oxygen monitoring is required. Continuous measuring of oxygen concentration places high demands on an in-line O2 system. Such equipment must be easy to install and operate, require minimal maintenance and, most importantly, always measure accurately. Intelligent optical sensor The latest development in optical oxygen sensors, the InPro 6970i from METTLER TOLEDO, delivers outstanding ...

VTC221 Truck Scale Receives „Top Rollout“ Recognition by Aggregates Manager
METTLER TOLEDO, the leading global supplier of vehicle weighing systems and services, received the „Top 25 Rollouts of 2010“ recognition by Aggregates Manager for the newly released VTC221 Truck Scale. The VTC221 is the strongest concrete scale on the market today. It combines a concrete driving surface with a robust orthotropic understructure similar to those used in METTLER TOLEDO’s steel deck truck scales. This composite design draws upon the strengths of both concrete and steel to produce an exceptionally rugged long-lasting structure. The VTC221 uses the POWERCELL PDX load cell network-a revolutionary new technology that eliminates the typical maintenance, repair costs and downtime related to conventional vehicle scales. More importantly, this new product will help customers in any industry prevent unnecessary and potentially substantial profit losses that may result from the use of analog, digital or hydraulic load cell truck scales. The new POWERCELL PDX load cell is the first ...

Better Control, Healthier Yields: Biotech Process Analytical Technology
METTLER TOLEDO recently published a white paper entitled „Process Analytical Technology (PAT) for Biotech: A Review of Recently Reported Applications in Fermentation and Bioprocessing.“ The paper explores how Process Analytical Technologies, or PATs, help optimize fermentation and bioprocess actions critical to pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, commodity chemical, and bulk fuel development and manufacturing. „PAT instrumentation, with applications from the laboratory to production scale, helps ensure bioprocesses are performing as designed to  maximize batch yield and productivity,“ said Mr. Redman. Effective screening and optimization for bioprocess development requires accurate monitoring and tight control of operating conditions. The METTLER TOLEDO literature review determined that PATs such as in situ monitoring are being used effectively to optimize bioprocesses in a manner unachievable by traditional methods of offline sampling. Mr. Redman explained, „In our analysis, it became clear that for complex cell systems, where flocculation and aggregation alter biomass concentration, simplistic measurements such as turbidity ...
