Welded coupling providing sensor exchange without shutdown

Due date: 1/11/10

We manufacture welded couplings for different types of sensors into pipeline or bioreactor. Coupling makes possible to change the sensor without shutdown and at the same time sensor protection during sanitization. During the exchange of the sensor the shutdown is not nessecary thanks to the possibility to unscrew the sensor. During the sanitization the sensor is not involved with the sanitizing medium thereby the lifetime of the sensors (particularly with optical sensors measuring O2 content) is markedly extended and at the same time the calibrating intervals are prolonged too.

Refracktometric determination of fermenting degree

Due date: 2/06/10


Today we offer refraktometric determination of apparent extract in combination with filtration/centrifuge. The withdrawed sample is decarbonized in the decarbonizer type OP, it is filtered or centrifuged. The refraction is measured and saved automatically into the memory of the reftractometer. The measurement is only low-responsive to residual content of CO2. 
Once the measurement is over the measured values are transfered (with the help of USB cable) from the memory of the refractometer into a computer. Value of apparent extract, real extract, alcohol content and fermenting degree are calculated from the values of refraction and original extract. The measured and calculated data are visualised in Excell programme file. 
The advantage of this procedure is fast and operative determination of fermenting degree directly in the cylindroconical fermenters departement.


  • Operative determination of the fermenting curve in the operation of the cylindro-conical fermenters department, immediate availability of the results for decision-making of the staff
  • Only small quantity of sample needed
  • Convenient method accuracy
  • Low cost
  • No big room needed
  • Accuracy of measurement of apparent extract (%) + - 0,15

Pressure yeast-press

Due date: 30/03/09


It is often necessary to thicken insoluble parts of the suspension like spent grains, operational yeast, mash etc.. in the fermenting laboratory. Flushing with condensed liquid (membrane pump) or sucking with Buchner funnel is used most often for this purpose but it lasts inordinately long time and weighs water pump on excessive water consumption (water pump). On the other hand the pressure-press makes use of pressure of water in the water piping, water consumption is practically zero and time period of press is 15 - 20 min. Fill the press with thickening suspension, put the piston in and connect the press to the water pressure supply. Basic filtration obstacle is made of inserted filter paper or cloth.

We can take as an example preparation of compressed brewery yeast of collected yeast after fermentation with dry solids 8-10%. The yeast is thickened to receive 30% of dry solids and can be dosed directly into the hopped wort and beer during determination of obtainable fermentation grade which is very common analysis in the brewer's laboratory. Useful volume of the press is about 250ml of the non-thickened suspension.
Technical data:
  • volume of the non-thickened suspension - 250 ml
  • Pressing time period- 15 - 20 min.
  • Weight- 3 kg
  • Dimensions- 200 x 200 x 300 mm
  • Material- food stainless steel

Sampling stoppers

Due date: 24/10/07



Sampling without CO2 loss is necessary for biological stability determination of the working samples, foamability measurement with the help of NIBEM method and for sampling where CO2 loss can influence the results of the analysis. It is important to do the sampling with the sampling valves for example from the cellar, before filtration of the transfer tank and KEG casks. Samples are withdraved into the small bottles with the acorn caps or even into the beer crowned bottles .It is possible to ensure sampling without increase of the dissolved 02 from the bottle neck with the help of 1-CUBE?s crown apparatus.

Stainless sampling stoppers suit perfectly to these demands. Before sampling put the filling head on the bottle, connect the bottle to the piping and fill the bottle with beer (regulating the beer flow) without CO2 loss. Beer is forced out from the starting non-standard filling phase by slow beer flow Beer flow is regulated with the help of connected hose with the pinchcock or stopper with throttling cock. After slow pressure decrease sampling preparation is replaced with acorn cap or crown. Another type of sampling stopper is designed for sampling into PET bottles.

Foam stability analyzer - FSA

Due date: 8/08/06

  1. Measurement of the collapse of foam created by high pressure method according to NIBEM method
Nibem method measures the period of foam collapse at three different heights after 10, 20 and 30 mm of foam collapse using the systém of the electrodes. The central probe is plunged in the foam and slowly moves further into the foam. If any of the electrode sensors except for the central one touches the surface of foam the movement down is stopped till the moment when the contact is in interrupted because of the foam collapse - after this procedure the electrodes start to move down again and the whole process repeats. The measurement starts once the foam collapsed for 10 mm under the the lip of the cuvette. The measurement continues till the the foam collapse for another 30 mm i.e. 40mm under the lip of of the cuvette. Sample withdrawal is very important for measurement reproducibilty. Beer is withrawed from the beer bottle or can under the pressure of the 2 atms. with the help of the sampler ICAS and the Flasher where the foam is created.

2. Automatic measurement of the stability of foam created by pouring beer from the bottle into the glass

Beer is filled straight from the bottle or can into the measuring vessel which imitates the pouring of beer in reality. The time of filling is recorded to adjust the speed of foaming and to standardize the way of measurement. The filling is interrupted after the first contact of an electrode sensor with the foam surface. The electrodes are movable and ride down depending on the foam collapse but the electrodes do not move when they are in touch with the foam surface. The instrument measures the time of foam collapse at three different heights (preadjustable by the user) for example after 10, 20 and 30 mm of foam collapse. The fourth couple (height/time) corresponds to the total height of the created foam and to the time of its complete collapse. This corresponds to the pouring of foam in reality of the specified height and measurement of its total collapse according to the consumer.

3. Measurement method of foam collapse when foam is created from the non-gas-saturated liquids

Except for the before mentioned methods it is possible to create foam with the gas non-saturated liquids (for example unhopped or hopped wort) in the measuring vessel by either mixing, air (or another gas) bubbling, or a combination of mixing and air bubbling. Then the period when the foam collapsed to a particular height - 40 mm (given by the difference of the electrode heights) is measured. It is possible to change the speed of the mixer and the passage of the bubbling gas which helps to create foam of a different quality from a thin foam to a very thick one. Different kinds of foam disintegrate for different periods of time depending on the foam structure. Reproducibility (with the tests which are kept later) is ensured by saving the value of the mixer speed and gas passage in the instrument memory. The period that is necessary to create foam (the time from switching on mixing to its switching it off) is also recorded.
