Beverage Analysis

Top beverage analysis systems from Anton Paar: Determination of quality parameters such as original extract, alcohol, extract, CO2, O2, °Brix, degree of inversion and pH value, etc are important for quality control in breweries and soft drink bottling plants. Beverage analysis is not always straightforward but always essential: If the dissolved oxygen content in beverages is too high this results in oxidation products which have a negative impact on the taste and shelf life of the beverage. Sugar inversion makes the measurement of beverage samples made with sugar from sugar beet or sugar cane more difficult, to mention just a few examples. Beverage analysis systems from Anton Paar meet all these requirements using state-of-the-art measuring systems.

CO2 Meter

Anton Paar’s CO2 meter quickly and precisely determines the dissolved carbon dioxide content of beverages. As carbon dioxide has a considerable influence on taste, quality control of beverages is important to ensure the correct CO2 content in the production and guarantee product quality. Anton Paar’s CO2 meter is portable and robust. Its patented measuring method prevents other dissolved gases affecting the measurement. The CO2 meter only requires a small amount of sample and is easy to use.

Density Meter

Each density meter model uses the revolutionary oscillating U-tube principle from Anton Paar and embodies decades of experience. A continuing focus on developing new density meters has made Anton Paar the world leader in the field of density and concentration measurement.
A Generation M density meter unites the excellent measuring performance of the DMAs with the highest possible user-friendliness. A number of new features make the sample filling and measurement process easier than ever, resulting in unrivaled reliability and traceability of the measurement values. The density meter models are robust, have a highly accurate platinum thermometer and automatic viscosity correction. The portable density meter measures density and concentration directly on-site. Its compact and lightweight design guarantees complete flexibility.

Microwave Synthesis

The microwave synthesis reactors from Anton Paar are powerful solutions which have already replaced traditional methods in many fields. With the powerful magnetron and a specially designed microwave applicator, microwave synthesis produces the highest field densities which allow extraordinary heating rates of solvents. Both polar and frequently used poorly absorbing solvents can be heated well above their boiling points in the shortest time.

Together with the operating limits of up to 300 °C and 30 bar these high-performance features allow the development of new synthesis strategies which further increase the efficiency of microwave synthesis.

Anton Paar‘s polarimeters measure the optical rotation over the entire measuring range at the same high accuracy. They are suitable for many applications, from routine measurements of the optical rotation to demanding measurements for innovative projects. The polarimeter series meets the requirements of the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, chemical and medical industries and is ideal for R&D applications. Its modular concept makes the polarimeter extremely flexible: The polarimeter always has the optimal combination of sample cell and measuring wavelength. Additional wavelengths and a temperature control system can be added at a later time.

The MCR rheometer series from Anton Paar offers you one thing first and foremost: An open range of possibilities. Whatever your rheological requirements are and will be in the future – based on its modular setup, your MCR rheometer is efficiently and comfortably adapted to meet your needs.

Benefit from the rheometers’ peak performance in oscillatory as well as rotational tests based on the powerful, dynamic EC motor, the patented normal force sensor integrated in the air bearing and time-saving features for maximum reliability and ease of use.

Build on your rheometer to cover any application need: Simply integrated temperature devices provide unrivaled temperature control from –150 °C up to 1000 °C. You can also easily connect a wide selection of application-specific accessories for rheo-optical investigations, tests with additional parameters such as pressure or a magnetic field – and you can also use your rheometer for extended material characterization such as tribology, DMTA measurement and much more.


Anton Paar‘s viscometer models are established as standard solutions and an increasingly popular alternative to traditional capillary viscometer types.
The viscometer models are used in a wide range of industries: from wort measurement in beer to measurements on polymer solutions, inks, low-viscosity oils and applications in biotechnology and the pharmaceutical industry. For measurements on substances in which only a small amount of sample is available, a special accessory can be used.
