The automatic shaker & CO2 calculator CO2DA is an instrument for determining the dissolved CO2 content of the bottled or canned beverage. CO2DA is based on the classical p,T method.
In order to bring the CO2 content in the gas and liquid phase into equilibrium as sample preparation tangential bottle shaking is applied. Tangential shaking method allows the CO2 pressure evolution to be more effective. Therefore, also the measuring results are more accurate.
It´s simple operation enables also higher accuracies:
Piercing of the sample by pressing down the measuring head. Shaking starts automatically after the “START” button was pressed. Shaking stops automatically after the preset shaking time is up.
The CO2 content will be calculated and displayed automatically on the screen. The device supplies a threshold display incl. alarm settings. Results which are out of specs will be highlighted on the screen.
Several p,T calculation formulas are for choice. Various procedures concerning shaking time/speed and automated pressure release (SNIFT) are freely combinable, in order to comply each customers house method.
