Color & Concentration: VIS Single Channel Probe-Image

The model AS16-F is a high-precision, single channel absorption probe. This stainless steel probe, equipped with an Ingold-style port, is designed for use in vessels or inline applications.

The sensor uses mainly the light in the visible (VIS) range at selected wavelengths. A precisely defined, constant light beam penetrates the process medium. The attenuation of the light intensity, caused by absorption and/or scattering by dissolved and undissolved substances, is detected by a hermetically-sealed photo diode.

An optical filter on the lamp side adapts the wavelength for a specific application and allows color measurements with great accuracy (e.g. phase separation beer / water). The AS16-F is available with 100 mm extended insertion depth used with larger vessels.

The seal-less, sapphire window design eliminates crevices and gaps to assure the highest level of sterility, cleanability and sensor integrity. The probe body demonstrates extreme durability and fulfills the CIP/SIP requirements demanded by ultra-sanitary process environments. NIST-traceable validation accessories are available as option absolute measurement confidence.
