F.A.B., Cider & Alcopop
VS-3000BMAE, VS-3000BMAC, VS-3000BMC
(Comparisons to alternative inline measuring methods)
(White Paper with Alfa-Laval)
Inline carbonation monitoring for beer, wine
coolers, alcopops or mixed/malt beverages.
Real Extract and OG/Gravity
Real-time measurement of final residual
sugars (RE) in pipes, tanks or fillers. Measure fermentation
Real-time alcohol (%w/w) and alcohol
(%v/v) measurement in pipes, tanks or fillers. Measure
fermentation progress in-situ. Low alcohol and
near-beer applications where density measurement is
inaccurate. Optical measurement principle, no
oscillating U-tube, no bypass, no pumps.
Measure conversion of sugars to
ethanol real-time in fermenters.
Drink, Juice & Water Production
Un-carbonated Soft Drink,
Product Transition Response (soda)
°Brix / Sugar Measurement:
Inline sugar measurement, syrup concentration measurement, blending
and dosing control, product/water interface detection.
Measure flavored sparkling waters with low °Brix levels.
Acid (TA) / Inline Diet:
Real-time Total Acid measurement for juice production or real-time
DIET measurement in soft drinks. This capability is
not offered by any other instrument manufacturer.
Real-time carbonation monitoring.
°Brix / Acid Ratio:
Real-time °Brix / Acid ratio for juice production.
Real-time sparkling water flavor measurement via °Brix or Acid
Ketchup & Mustard & BBQ Sauce
Measure conversion of lactose to lactic acid
real-time for yogurt production, also
ethanol to acetic
acid for vinegar production.
Acid (TA) measurement:
Real-time acetic acid readings for vinegar
bottling/cutting, salad dressing, mustard and BBQ sauce production.
Sugars / °Brix measurement:
Inline sugar readings for ketchup, BBQ sauce and other condiments.
Measure fermentation in-situ.
Dairy-based beverages requiring CO2 measurement.
Systems - Solutions (re-seller
serving only the BioEthanol industry)
Measure °brix content in-situ during Slurry, Liquefaction
or Oil Recovery processes. Solid-state IR measurement is not affected by
solids, density or color.

readings of increasing/high ethanol content.
Monitor CO2 in fermenter.
Ethanol Measurement: Real-time monitoring in
process without the use of a density calculation.
Measure glucose real-time.
Organic Acid Measurement:
Real-time monitoring for blending of
various organic acids.
