    Ultrasonic Concentration Measurement for Highest Quality

Teqwave H from Endress+Hauser enables users to analyze and monitor fluids in the food and beverage industry reliably. Applications include monitoring sugar content in fruit juices and distilled beverages or the concentration of cleaning agents. The hygienic design of Teqwave H fulfills the highest quality standards. State-of-the-art algorithms and a flexible application concept guarantee optimal process control even for changing batches.

Direct measurement and display of disturbances 

A liquid analysis in the process with Teqwave H offers many advantages. Concentration data sets for the most common beverages and cleaning agents enable using the same sensor with no reprogramming, even for batch changes. It is also possible to read in additional parameters, such as the acid content. Teqwave H uses these to calculate concentrations with even greater accuracy thanks to the latest algorithms. Thus, it ensures reliable processes and transparency of product quality in real time.

The variaty of measurands enable flexible use in various applications. In soft drink and fruit juice production, it assures product quality by reliably determining sugar and invert sugar content. In production of distilled beverages, it ensures consistent alcohol content, simultaneously measuring sugar content. When cleaning plants or bottles, Teqwave H also monitors different concentrations and supports precise dosing. Cleaning agents can be changed easily without recalibration.

The device is especially developed for hygienic applications in the food and beverage industry. Its outstanding feature, in addition to the stainless-steel measuring tube, is its full-bore design. Thanks to the design without protruding parts, there are no places inside the measuring tube where material can accumulate. Teqwave H offers various product-specific data sets for concentration measurement, which allow the calibration usually repeated after batch change to be omitted. The users can adapt these data sets to their product as needed to further increase the accuracy of the measurements. Thus, users with a wide product range need just one measuring device for a great variety of applications. This is helpful when one production line is used to manufacture the entire product range in various batches.

Gas bubble and particle detection

In many processes, dispersion typically occurs in the form of gas bubbles or particles that can interfere with the measuring signals. To support stable process control, Teqwave measures such disturbance variables permanently directly in the process, evaluates their severity and compensates for them to achieve continuous accurate measurement. Users are able to react to error signals immediately. This guarantees maximum reliability and users receive even greater transparency in their processes.
