Optical total suspended solids sensor for hygienic applications in the food and beverage industry


Process optimization is the key in process control and process steering. Most of the time process analysis is still a parameter which is measured in the laboratory and therefore time consuming.

Further processing is depending of the laboratory results.

In line analytics provide accurate and reliable measurement performance and save time for production. Thus increases your process efficiency and yield.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn about the measuring principles for turbidity and absorption and the differences.
  • Displace the offline lab sampling into your process pipe by in line, real-time optical device
