In-line Brix measurement for quality control in alcoholic beverage fermentation

Changing consumer habits and wish to experience new tastes make flavored beverages producers adopt new innovative technologies in order to maximize the production efficiency and optimize production costs. A highly automated process is also essential for achieving precise in-line alcoholic soft drink mixing. 
Soft carbonated alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks are produced by mixing e.g. carbonated water with juice or alcoholic beverage with flavored water. In order to ensure efficiency and sustainability of this production, the following processes have to be controlled continuously and in-line: 

  • precise control over drinks blending
  • product-to-product, product-to-water and product-to-CIP liquid interfaces detection
  • set-point detection
