Measuring °Brix in the crystallizer

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