UC09 – Inline Infrared Carbometric Unit

CO2 only
inline infrared carbometric unit


The UC09 is a 100% inline system designed for measuring the CO2 content of carbonated beverage, beer, wine or carbonated water. Because the system was designed to be installed directly into the process pipe with Varivent fittings there is no need for bypass loops or pumps. This design can guarantee the best hygienic conditions eliminating risk of contamination and reduce installation cost. This optical sensor uses infrared ATR technology entirely factory-developed and capable to withstand all types of applications even those featured by high temperatures. It only takes about 3 seconds for processing the measurement helping operators to better optimize the process. It has minimal drift and is virtually maintenance free. After initial installation and configuration no further measurement adjustments are required. The sensor connects to a user-friendly controller (MP01 or MP02) that display the results locally and provide output signal that can be used for process control.
