Trace Oxygen Measurement in Pipes

Oxygen Sensor Integrated in Metal Flow-Through Cell FTM-M10-PSt6

In this metal flow-through cell an Oxygen Exchange Cap (OEC-M10) with PSt6 sensor (max. measurement range 0 - 10 % O2, limit of detection 0.5 ppb) is integrated via M10 thread. the FTMs are available in different sizes with 6 mm, 1/4" and 1/2" connector diameter, but they an be installed in pipes with other diameters using the respective adapters. For sensor read-out an optical fiber is connected. Fibers with protective metal spiral tube cover can be attached to the FTMs magnetically. The oxygen probe is very robust and long-term stable. It can be cleaned by CIP (Cleaning in place, + 80 °C and 2 % NaOH) and also stand steam sterilization (+ 130 °C, 1.5 atm). The OEC-M10 can easily be exchanged if necessary.

  • Max. measurement range 0 - 10 % O2, limit of detection 0.5 ppb
  • Different FTM sizes available
  • No consumption of oxygen
  • Signal independent of flow velocity
  • Autoclavable, SIP (+ 130 °C, 1.5 atm) & CIP (+ 80 °C, 2 % NaOH)

Applications

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.
