METTLER TOLEDO announced the introduction of the InTap TM 4070i portable dissolved oxygen measuring system. The InTap 4070i is a portable, battery-powered device based on their highly successful M400 series transmitter and incorporating a state of the art optical oxygen sensor with Intelligent Sensor Management TM (ISM).
This device allows brewers to measure dissolved oxygen concentrations accurately and easily anywhere in their process with resolution down to 0.1 parts per billion of dissolved oxygen. The same sensing technology that is used to monitor the brewing process in-line is also used in the InTap, assuring the user of accurate at-line measurements that easily can be compared to their in-line measurements.
The advanced digital sensor incorporates Intelligent Sensor Management hardware and software from METTLER TOLEDO. This feature offers several benefits to the user. When combined with PC-based iSense, it allows for simple calibration of the sensor off-line. ISM also saves important information about the sensor, such as calibration and usage so that maintenance is predictive and can be scheduled at a convenient time.
“Our brewing customers asked us to make a portable at-line dissolved oxygen sensor so they could quickly and easily monitor their process at any point in the line and compare those readings to their in-line measurements,” said Brian Vaillancourt, Brewing Industry Manager for METTLER TOLEDO. “Some of the key features of the InTap include its long battery lifetime, extremely fast response time and the fact that the optical oxygen sensor is virtually maintenance-free.”About Mettler-Toledo Ingold Mettler-Toledo Ingold has a long history of providing high-quality solutions for demanding process analytics applications.
