Measuring °Brix in the crystallizer

With the microwave measuring systems from Berthold, the juice concentration (°Brix) is monitored throughout the whole crystallization process and a precise determination of the seeding point can be determined. The systems are applied in all crystallization stages. Due to the robust device and the superior sensor flushing, the measuring systems have proven time and time again that they work reliably and trouble-free even in continuous operating conditions.Evenafter the final crystallization stage the °Brix concentration of the massecuite is still measured. In this case the measuring system is positioned at the outlet pipe, after the product has passed through the pump.
