Multiparameter & Sonde in Food & Beverage

Multiparameter, & Sonde in Food & Beverage

Water is critical as both a primary ingredient, as well as a processing component in food and beverage production. In order to comply with government regulations and ensure high quality, water must be treated and tested throughout. Testing takes place during cleaning, sanitizing, packaging, and cooling to maintain high standards. Wastewater is discharged at the end of the process and must be monitored and treated before it is released. Sondes can monitor all required parameters and communicate digitally directly to control systems. This provides operators a full facility view of all testing points and decreases operating costs by enabling immediate reactions to system alerts. Common parameters for food and beverage manufacturing include pH, ORP,  conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and temperature.
