Accurate and repeatable milk of lime measurement

Concentration measurement and control of milk of lime is critical to ensure proper quality and cost stability. Thin juice naturally contains many impurities and non-sugar substances which are eliminated in the juice clearing process. The juice is cleared by adding milk of lime to the thin juice. This is where the Micro-Polar Brix comes into play. Using its sophisticated microwave technology, a highly reliable and repeatable concentration measurement is achieved to monitor and control the quality of the milk of lime. Multi-frequency technology and reference cables for measurement stability are incorporated to ensure consistent measurement results. Sensors are also available with water flushing feature to reduce product build-up on antennas. The Micro-Polar Brix transmitter menu structure makes calibration and start-up easy to accomplish.
