Beer Monitor 5500/5600

A modern classic – quality control with over 20 years of experience

Inline beer monitoring is essential in a modern brewing process in order to increase the reliability and efficiency of the process. The new Beer Monitor 5500 and Beer Monitor 5600 are highly accurate instruments for continuous monitoring of key parameters such as alcohol content, apparent and real extract, original extract, and the CO2 concentration of a wide range of beer styles: from traditional lagers to low-alcohol or alcohol-free beers, double bocks, FMBs/FABs, ciders, shandies, gluten-free beers, and many more.

Both monitors use digital signal processing and come with a new mechanical design to deliver stable, drift-free results and help keep your production highly efficient.

Key Features

Two system configurations to suit your requirements


Beer Monitor 5500 
Density and sound velocity sensor combined with a p/T (volume expansion) CO2 measurement

  • Low maintenance – depending on the operating conditions maintenance is required on average every 6 to 18 months
  • Product-specific setups at the best value
  • W-shaped oscillating tube
  • Digital signal processing
  • New mechanical design for reduced size and weight

Beer Monitor 5600 
Density and sound velocity sensor combined with an optical CO2 measurement

  • Product-independent measurement (whatever your beverages’ solubility, sugar composition, foreign gases, color, or turbidity: nothing influences your readings)
  • Suitable for hygienic applications
  • Maintenance-free
  • W-shaped oscillating tube
  • Digital signal processing
  • New mechanical design for reduced size and weight

 

Ensured product quality with additional beer-specific parameters

Apparent and real degree of fermentation, apparent extract, specific gravity, present gravity, calories, and real-extract-to-alcohol ratio are parameters that tell you whether the product quality meets the standard for each special beer style you run in your production line.

Rapid production start

Save time and costs during commissioning and production downtimes, and accommodate a wide range of beer styles with little or no adjustment. Anton Paar’s Beer Monitors are perfectly adapted to the market’s changing tastes, preferences, and requirements. They give you the flexibility to react to product and market demands instantly.

Fit for your production environment

Equipped with an internal sample pump the Beer Monitors can be mounted directly in the line using both sides of the VARINLINE® access unit without further mounting support. This allows flexible installations even in lines with only a minimum of available space.

Ease of use

A simple touchscreen user interface facilitates the setup of the instrument and product parameters. In addition, you can visualize your process and display graphical trends with a just a few clicks. By setting lower and upper limits on measurement values, alarms can be set and triggered using digital or relay outputs.

Improved process capability – keeping an eye on all relevant key parameters

The powerful data acquisition and visualization software (client-server) Davis 5 enables you to save all data and alarms, provides statistical process control and graphical trend analysis, and allows product adjustments. Password-protected access to all measuring systems is possible from various locations, while providing powerful reporting and integration with your corporate quality management system.
