TurBiScat

The Sigrist TurBiScat monitors turbidity in liquids. Depending on your application, The TurBiScat can monitor turbidity at 90° and/or 25° using the highly accurate scattered light principle. There is an additional option of measuring Colour at a 430nm wavelength to monitor beer colour in EBC.

The combination of Hastelloy and sapphire in a seal-less design allows operating the unit in practically all process applications. Window fouling is monitored, compensated and can be checked using an anti-fouling control. Calibration is easily performed easily and at lab values of accuracy using a secondary reference standard.

Description

Technical Description – TurbiScat

The measurement of turbidity in the brewing industry and specifically the monitoring of filtration in the brewing process is firmly connected with the name SIGRIST. SIGRIST offers a full range of optical measuring instruments covering all important applications in breweries – right from the brew house through to the laboratory.

Monitoring wort turbidity at the lauter tun and at the mash filter Due to variation in quality of the raw materials, it is important to obtain information on the quality of the wort at an early stage. It makes sense to carry out this monitoring with a forward scatter angle photometer, i.e. the TurBiScat 25° (recommendation EBC/MEBAK) or a dual-angle measurement with the TurBiScat 90/25. If rising turbidity values are seen quickly, a process adjustment can then be carried out at the mash stage. During the subsequent brewing process, measures can be taken in advance to filter the problematic brew.
