By choosing Vaisala Polaris PR53AC sanitary compact process refractometer you get a reliable, modern and modular product platform that is safe to use in food and beverage manufacturing, has 3-A Sanitary and EHEDG certifications and meets all hygienic demands.
The product works in every process condition from stable to demanding, in high process temperatures, and in sticky processes. It is also compatible with clean-in-place (CIP) and sanitation-in-place (SIP) systems. Connectivity options include mA, HART, and Modbus RTU as a standard.
Hygienic certification guarantees that all hygienic demands are met, and sanitary features are woven into the product design. The product is safe and suitable to use in food and beverage processing.
The measurement range for concentration/Brix is 0-100 %.
The measurement is based on optical measurement of the refractive index (RI). The RI can be measured from practically any liquid or slurry, and it is sensitive to dissolved material. Particles, bubbles or color do not affect the measurement.
In addition to wide standard process connection offering, Vaisala offers an opportunity to customize the product to meet specific processing needs whether it is a wetted parts material, custom size process connections or custom type enclosure for transmitters (Ex d/Ex p). Contact us for options!
Convenient installations directly to different size process pipes with standard sanitary and Variline couplings, or with a sanitary flow cell with measurement data incorporated to control system. Vaisala also offers miniature flow cell for bypass lines or sample lines, suitable for example in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
Process refractometers are easy to install and low maintenance instruments. The optical measurement principle combined with an instrument with zero moving parts does not require regular maintenance.
The outstanding long-term stability and the measurement principle with no moving parts provides years, even decades of accurate, continuous, fast and stable measurement for concentration of sugar (Brix) and various other chemical concentrations directly in the process stream.
Ensure high product quality, improve production efficiency and reduce waste with the help of continuous inline monitoring of liquid concentration in all food processing stages. Learn more from application examples.
Learn how inline process refractive index measurements can detect rapid changes in concentrations, standardize processes to optimize quality, and reduce costs while increasing yields.
