Measurement of oxygen traces with metal flow-through cells

Oxygen Exchange Cap OEC-M10-PSt6

This oxygen exchange cap with PSt6 oxygen sensor (max. measurement range 0 - 10 % O2, limit of detection 0.5 ppb) can be screwed into a metal flow-through cell FTM-M10 via its M10 thread. This way a used sensor coating in your flow-through cell can easily be replaced. A polymer optical fiber with protective metal spiral tube cover can be attached magnetically to the OEC. The oxygen sensor is very robust and stands CIP (Cleaning in place, + 80 °C and 2 % NaOH) or even steam sterilization (+ 130 °C, 1.5 atm).

  • Replacement sensor for FTM-M10
  • Measure oxygen traces in pipes
  • Max. measurement range 0 - 10 % O2, limit of detection 0.5 ppb
  • Signal independent of flow velocity
  • Autoclavable, SIP (+ 130 °C, 1.5 atm) & CIP (+ 80 °C, 2 % NaOH)

In-line Oxygen Measurement in Brewing and Beverage Industry

Even low concentrations of oxygen influence shelf-life and the taste of certain beverages. Due to the extraordinary low detection limit and outstanding accuracy of PreSens trace oxygen sensors, the quality of oxygen-sensitive products such as beer, wine and soft drinks is secured.
The optical sensors have – compared to standard electrodes – a very fast response time and they are very easy to maintain.
