1. PV® Series High Pressure Liquid Phase Carbon Adsorbers Datasheet

    The PV® Series Systems are designed for use in a wide range of low/high flow and pressure applications.

  2. Determining Alcohol And Extract Concentrations Across A Wide Range Of Spirits

    No matter the spirit — whisky, cognac, brandy, vodka, gin, tequila, or rum — a spirit monitor can create custom formulas from your samples. The technology will take into account both alcohol and extract concentrations and allow for simple, product specific calibrations and adjustments to produce the highest quality product.

  3. Why Is Humidity Control In Food Products Important?

    Besides temperature, the water content of a sample, as well as the relative humidity of the ambient air, is a key factor for the flow and structural properties of a broad variety of food products. A measurement of such parameters can be used to quantify sensory attributes like mouth feel, crispness, or firmness, and, ultimately, improving product quality.

  4. The Black Lagoon Or The Blue Lagoon?

    To men of a certain age, the word “lagoon” conjures two very different images. In the first, it’s the Creature from the Black Lagoon — a scary gill-man emerging from the ooze. In the other, it’s the idyllic Blue Lagoon, with Brooke Shields frolicking in an island fantasyland.

  5. How BrewDog Tested Bitterness And Color In Its Beer

    With no standard method for in- house testing of bitterness and color of its final product, Brewdog wanted to implement a solution to utilize these parameters and ensure proper quality control in its beer.

  6. How Advanced Online Instrumentation Helps Food Processors Lower DAF Systems’ Costs

    Many food processors use dissolved air flotation (DAF) to remove fats, oils, and grease (FOG) and suspended solids from their wastewater streams. Advanced online instrumentation provides continuous, real time suspended solids measurement in DAF operations, which automates and optimizes polymer and coagulant feed regardless of wide load variations. The result: potential polymer savings of 20 to 30 percent.

  7. Analyzing Oxygen: Final Product Quality Control

    The hop processing company of Hopfenveredlung St. Johann is processing around 25.000 metric tons of hops per year to pellets. At their production site in St. Johann, Hallertau, Germany, they run a state of the art pilot brewery. One of the key functions of the pilot brewery is to run trials on a variety of brewing functions, including raw product (hops and hop-products) and technology (including bottling, brewing and analytical instrumentation), as well as product development. These trials are done for the shareholders Barth Haas Group and HVG and other breweries or suppliers on a contract basis.

  8. Tips For Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) In Food & Beverage Production

    Maximum availability is not something that happens by chance, it’s the result of forward-looking action. Processing food economically and at the right time is absolutely essential. Otherwise there is a risk that production has to be stopped and raw materials are wasted.

  9. Manufacturing Plants Based on the Lego Principle

    Smaller batches and different types of product in the same plant – these are the market demands to which more and more manufacturers in the process industries need to adjust. The answer is plants based on the “Lego principle”.

  10. Abbemat Heavy Duty Refractometers

    Technology leader Anton Paar launches two new high-performance refractometers: Abbemat 450 and 650. The instruments combine extraordinary robustness with high precision up to ±0.00002 nD to measure the refractive index under harsh conditions.
