KxS inline Brix refractometers for food and beverage

KxS Inline Brix refractometers DCM are engineered for precise, real-time Brix and concentration measurements in the food and beverage sector.

In the food and beverage industry, refractometers are essential for measuring Brix, total solids, and concentrations of various solutions ensuring the correct composition in every batch or continuous process.

Typical applications

  • Whey protein concentrate (WPC) and lactose in whey protein membrane separation and filtration (ultrafiltration UF, reverse osmosis RO)
  • Juices and juice concentrates evaporation and blending
  • Confectionary and filling preparation
  • Fruit and vegetable products
  • Dairy products, e.g., Infant formula and milk evaporation and drying
  • Extracts
  • Sodas and soft drinks filling lines and sugar dissolving
  • Jelly and jam cooking
  • Tomato processing
  • Yeast extration
  • And more

KxS refractometers adhere to the highest standards of hygiene and food safety. All wetted parts of the refractometers, including sensors, flow cells, and process connections are with 3A Sanitary Symbol authorization and certified by the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG), ensuring compliance with the most rigorous industry standards.

Our refractometers incorporate industry-leading solid optics and are designed for maintenance-free operation with true stand-alone concentration monitoring. They provide a full measurement range of 0-100 Brix, utilizing two independent 4-20mA outputs and a digital Ethernet output for connectivity to automatic process control systems.

For enhanced functionality, an optional HMI unit offers a local display and interface, ensuring user-friendly operation.

In demanding process conditions, one mA-output can be dedicated to controlling the optical window wash, maintaining optimal measurement performance.
