Application

The so-called Brix value (expressed in Brix degrees) is controlled in a concentrator. This value indicates the proportion of solids in a liquid (density). A certain Brix value is required, for example, to produce an optimal tomato concentrate. The liquid circulates in a spiral tube, from which the concentrate is obtained. The liquid content is extracted via evaporation in a special chamber. Electronic differential pressure measurement ensures accurate density measurement.
