IB08 – Beverage analysis system

BRIX / Diet / CO2


The IB08 beverage analyzer is a complete inline quality control system. The analyzer measures carbonated soft drink (Brix, Diet, CO2 and O2) as well flavored waters. The analyzer is based on optical technology and is virtually maintenance free. The Brix and Diet readings are measured via refractive index and infrared technology is used for measuring CO2 (pressure / temperature CO2 sensor is also available upon request). After initial installation and configuration no further measurement adjustments are needed. This makes the analyzer ideal for pump and run changeovers with no need to wait for laboratory checks. This allows a plant to optimize their process, save time, improve syrup yields, and increase production through put.

Measurement of sugar-sweetened or diet carbonated soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, non-carbonated soft drinks, beer and mineral waters on the process line
Concentration measurement Measurement limits:
0…18.5 Brix for “REGULAR” scale
0…2000 mBrix for “DIET” scale
0…200% for “% STANDARD” display scale.
0.1% of the range, maximum accuracy ±0.01 Brix with variation of ±10 °C (±18 °F) for “REGULAR” scale.
0.15% of the range, maximum accuracy ±0.003 Brix with variation of ±2.5 °C (±4.5 °F) for “DIET” scale.
