Vaisala K-PATENTS Sanitary OEM Refractometer PR-33-AC is designed to meet the needs of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and integrators serving beverage, dairy and food processing industries.
The sanitary OEM refractometer operation is not affected by particles, bubbles or color changes of the medium. Because of the digital sensing technology, even large amounts of suspended solids or bubbles do not affect the measurement or the accuracy.
The sanitary OEM Refractometer can be installed in the main processing line and no by-pass arrangements are required.
The measurement range covers 0-100 Brix with the accuracy of +/- 0.1 degree Brix, and the repeatability of +/- 0,05 degree Brix. The measurement is automatically temperature compensated over the whole process temperature range from -20 to 130 °C (from -4 to 266 °F), and withstands CIP (clean-in-place) and SIP (sterilization-in-place) processes. The 4-20 mA output signal is proportional to the temperature compensated Brix value for real-time process control.
The sanitary OEM refractometer is factory calibrated and the digital measuring system does not require re-calibration or regular maintenance.
