Food and Beverage

Knick advises and supports companies in the food industry on process-safe liquid analysis. Critical parameters for these processes are oxygen, pH and conductivity. Measuring points are often exposed to rough conditions and are located in critical areas, such as ex zones.

A broad portfolio of sensors, process analyzers, holders and fittings, cleaning and calibration systems, allows Knick to offer tailor-made solutions and services.

Product safety and quality are still a major challenge

The food and beverage industry is one that is constantly on the move. New consumer trends, energy price increases, environmental protection and food integrity mean that this industry must constantly evolve and adapt.  Quality assurance in the food industry involves monitoring and controlling various parameters to ensure that products meet desired quality standards and are safe for consumption.

In addition to all hygienic aspects (SIP and CIP capability), the requirements for the measurement technology include the prevention of glass breakage as well as continuous measurement, since many plants produce at high throughput. At the same time, fats, oils and viscous media make the sensors' work more difficult, so that a trend towards  fully automatic measuring points with cleaning and calibration of pH sensors  can be seen here.





Why Knick ?
Knick supplies everything from a single source, from portable measuring devices for laboratory or random sample measurement in the field to fully automatic in-line measuring solutions with sensor maintenance. Of course hygienic, with safe separation from the process and glass-free.
