Optical oxygen measurement improves beer quality

May 20, 2009
Optical oxygen sensor for brewing applications helps to minimize waste of beer and reduce maintenance costs with rapid and accurate measurement of dissolved oxygen. The residual oxygen level has become a key factor for beer quality. Optical sensors set a new benchmark in oxygen monitoring resulting in compelling beer quality and longer shelf life. The optical oxygen sensor will substantially improve the product quality in breweries. Based on a chemo-optical technology the new high-end sensor offer significant advantages, requiring minimal maintenance and calibration effort, leading to long-term stability combined with high accuracy. Calibration in the lab or at the filling line, easy opto-cap replacement and “Plug and Measure” functionality make the handling of the sensor easy, quick and safe.
