Trace Oxygen Measurement in Metal Flow-Through Connectors FTM

Oxygen Exchange Window OEW-PSt6

The Oxygen Exchange Window is integrated in the FTM-PSt6. It enables to easily exchange a used sensor coating without having to replace the whole flow-through connector. The integrated PSt6 type sensor allows trace oxygen measurements in gases and liquids. It has a measurement range of 0 – 5 % oxygen, with a detection limit of 0.002 % oxygen.

  • Easy exchange of a used sensor coating
  • Online oxygen measurement in perfusion systems
  • No consumption of oxygen
  • Signal independent of flow velocity
  • Autoclavable, SIP (+ 130 °C, 1.5 atm) & CIP (2 % NaOH, + 80 °C)
  • Polarization-free
  • Long-term stability

Applications

Process Control in Biotech & Pharma

The OIMs, the oxygen probes for in-line measurement, are designed for harsh conditions like high pressure or oil/water mixtures. These systems give high accuracy and are almost maintenance-free as they do not contain any membranes and electrolytes. The sensors are fully autoclavable and sterilizable (CIP & SIP).


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.
