SpectraAlyzer BRAUMEISTER – Beer Quality Check and Control
Great taste comes with great recipe and great quality
The SpectraAlyzer BRAUMEISTER is an instrument for beer quality check and control and is the ideal solution for routine analysis of major quality parameters during beer production.
In modern brewing quality control operations, reliable and accurate analytical results are necessary to provide customers with products of highest and – what is most important – consistent quality. In order to be most competitive in the world market, consistent high yields, top quality and low production costs are the objectives that need to be achieved.
Designed as a modular system, the SpectraAlyzer BRAUMEISTER solution presents the analytical results of these major quality parameters in beer and beer mix drinks: alcohol content, density, extracts, bitter units IBU, sugar content, pH, N-content, invertase content and color within 45 seconds. There is no need to manually condition the sample and extra (harmful) reagents do not need to be used. This analyser solution provides highly accurate beer quality control parameters at no extra cost at different production areas e.g. mashing, lautering, boiling, fermenting, conditioning, filtering, and packaging.
As a stand alone system, the analyser solution can be operated very easily and intuitively for beer quality check and quality control – even close to the production line. The rugged construction and unique optical sample/reference setup ensures reliable operation in environments with fluctuating temperatures, vibration and dust.
The SpectraAlyzer BRAUMEISTER comes with ready to use calibration models and a powerful software package to facilitate model fine tuning and extensive and automated logging as well as database storage of the analytical results on the analyser, within the company intranet and/or the internet.
The SpectraAlyzer BRAUMEISTER complies with EBC method: “9.2.6 Alcohol in Beer by Near Infrared Spectroscopy”.
The SpectraAlyzer BRAUMEISTER complies with ASBC method Beer-4G: “Alcohol by NIR and original extract content”.
