45 Difference in the Turbidity Readings between Online and Lab Equipment Why?

46 S. 45 Difference in the turbidity readings between online and lab equipment – Why? » Wavelength: MEBAK Standard is 650nm, general purpose lab units use mostly white light ( nm) » Color: Lab units with white light offer no colour compensation! » Temperature: Even smallest temperature deviations can lead to major differences!

47 S. 46 Difference in the turbidity readings between online and lab equipment – Why? » Gas Bubbles: Measurements are done in open cuvettes. MEBAK recommends closed cuvettes. » Measurements in bottles: Bottle size and color has an impact on the measurement. Standard lab instruments have no option for correction. » Other Issues: Correct calibration, water bath, measuring angle, optical components

48 S. 47 Turbidity in beer according to MEBAK  Measurement of turbidity/ particle concentration by scattered light  Scattering angle 25°/ 90°  wavelength 650nm +/- 30nm  Calibration with formazine in EBC

50 S. 49 » Same angle, same wavelength, same type: Excellent comparability, deviation < +/- 5% » Same angle, same wavelength, different type: Good comparability, deviation < +/ % » Same angle, different wavelength: Hardly comparable, deviation by a factor of 2 (e.g. for green light) or more (white light) » Different angle, different or same wavelength: Hardly comparable, deviation by a factor of 10 or moremore Comparability data for online & lab equipment
