Vaisala provides process refractometers for accurate in-line Brix and concentration measurements in the cane and beet sugar refining and milling processes. The purpose is to achieve high quality liquid and crystal sugars and to minimise costs of production. K-Patents refractometers are used:
|Vaisala K-PATENTS® Sanitary Compact Refractometer PR-23-AC
For hygienic installations in small pipe line sizes of 2.5 inch and smaller. Installation through a 3A Sanitary clamp.
|Vaisala K-PATENTS® Sanitary Probe Refractometer PR-23-AP
For hygienic installations in large pipes, tanks, cookers, crystallizers and kettles and for higher temperatures up to 150°C (300 °F). Installation through a 3A Sanitary clamp.
|Vaisala K-PATENTS® Process Refractometer PR-23-GP
An industrial refractometer for large pipe sizes and tanks, cookers, crystallizers and kettles. Installation through a flange or clamp connection.
|Vaisala K-PATENTS® SeedMaster SM-3 for Multiparameter Sugar Crystallization Monitoring and Automatic Seeding
A unique third generation crystallization transmitter and seeding device to be used with the K-Patents Process Refractometer. The SM-3 allows for accurate in-line and real-time monitoring of supersaturation and crystal content over the complete process of crystallization, and implementation and control of automatic or manual seeding.
