BrauBeviale 2015 continued last year’s success

(Bonaduz, 18.11.2015) – Hamilton Bonaduz AG presented once again its products VisiTrace DO, Beverly and the sensors Incyte and Dencytee at this year’s BrauBeviale in Nuremberg, Germany. The experts for process analytics and measurement technology were left with the impression that the quality of contacts was increased yet again compared to the previous year. Dr. Knut Georgy, Senior Market Segment Manger Process Analytics at Hamilton sums up: “As in the previous year we were able to establish promising contacts. The vast number of our renowned customers emphasizes, that our solutions for brewery processes have become indispensable”.

The optical dissolved oxygen measurement device Beverly enables measuring of dissolved oxygen in the product, and thus the quality of the beverage at different points during the process. Its robust construction stands up to the harsh environments in breweries, and convinces with its easy operation and maintenance-friendly design. The measurement is based on the robust optical in-line dissolved oxygen sensor VisiFerm DO installed in Beverly. Hamilton offers with VisiTrace DO, a sensor for the exact measurement of oxygen concentrations in low ppb ranges. In this way the company meets an essential need for brewery processes after filtration, before the filling, and after water de-aeration. The oxygen sensitive sensor cap is stabilized against active chlorine and chlorine dioxide and allows for a quick detection of oxygen concentration changes.

Knut Georgy explains: “We also presented the sensors Incyte and Dencytee for viable and total cell density measurement at our booth”. He adds that both sensors are optimally suited for brewery processes, since they allow determining the end of the yeast propagation. This ensures that the used yeast cells for the fermentation are vital and metabolize carbohydrates into alcohol and CO2 quickly. The Incyte sensor is based on a real-time capacitance measurement of viable yeast cells in an alternating electrical field. Dencytee sensors determine the total cell density by measuring the optical density at near-infrared wave lengths.
