Consistent monitoring of TPO in beverage production
Anton Paar recently launched its TPO meter, TPO 5000, which uses a new approach to determine the headspace oxygen and dissolved oxygen in finished beer and soft drinks in one go. It is built for long-term use close to the production line: its stainless steel housing is splash-proof. Samples are taken directly from cans, glass bottles, and PET bottles and measured in less than four minutes. After measurement the device cleans itself. The user interface and result outputs of TPO 5000 can be personalised to suit individual requirements.
TPO 5000 supports the user in every way: Beverage containers are positioned easily and centered automatically by the device. The optochemical oxygen sensor runs with minimum maintenance and requires no special attention during daily work. A customisable home screen provides quick access to favourite functions and up to 5000 measurement data sets can be stored on the instrument in order to ensure full traceability.
Combined TPO and CO2 measurement
TPO 5000 can be teamed up with Anton Paar’s carbonation meter to measure both TPO and dissolved CO2 in one measuring cycle. CarboQC selectively determines the true amount of carbon dioxide in beverages and can be used as a stand-alone instrument as well.
