The microwave measuring system uses the dielectric property of water. The measuring system generates microwaves that interact with the water molecules. This interaction causes an attenuation of the microwave energy, which can be detected as phase shift and attenuation. Since the phase shift and attenuation changes are directly proportional to the water content in the product, the concentration or dry content in the medium can be determined with high accuracy.
Berthold‘s superior multi-frequency technology provides very stable and reliable measurements unaffected by interfering reflections or resonances. The microwave energy is so low (max. 10 mW) that the material to be measured is neither heated nor altered in any way.
As an expert in microwave measurements, Berthold offers an extensive portfolio of sensors. These are extremely robust and provide long functional reliability, for years to come.
The MicroPolar Brix LB 565 has been specially developed for use in the sugar industry e.g. to monitor Brix content, density, or concentration. These systems can be installed on vessels (e.g. vacuum pans) or pipelines.

Our LB 566 MicroPolar microwave system measures online as the process runs, providing continuous real-time information on concentration, density, dry matter, or water content in liquids, suspensions, and pastes. A high degree of accuracy characterizes the extremely reliable measuring systems. The various sensors are robust and can be installed on containers or in pipelines and can be used for various fluids, pastes, and powders.
Applications range from the food industry to wastewater treatment, power plants, and the chemical industry.
