Analysis of regular soft drinks with PBA-S Generation M

The PBA-S Generation M (Packaged Beverage Analyzer for Soft Drinks) is the up-to-date measuring system for beverage analysis. Determine sugar (°Brix) and CO2 in soft drinks without prior sample degassing. The beverage is filled into the analysis system directly from its container and is then measured within three minutes: °Brix and CO2 content are determined in a single work step.The modular system consists of the DMA™ 4100/4500/5000 M density meter, the CarboQC ME CO2 measuring module, and the PFD Filling Device (Plus).
