Product monitoring and identification systems for food & beverage applications

The InPro 8300 RAMS (Reflection Absorption Multi-Switch) systems are designed for in-line use in phase separation and product identification applications by turbidity or color. The rugged InPro 8300 RAMS systems are simple to configure, easy to use and require minimal maintenance. These systems are widely used in brewery applications for beer/water separation, before the filler line and in separator control. For product identification, a “fingerprint” of each product is taken and stored in the InPro 8300 RAMS’ built-in memory. Fingerprinting is done using one or more parameters (e.g. blue transmittance, NIR reflection or green absorption). The InPro 8300 RAMS identifies up to eight different products.

Features and Benefits

How it Works
The InPro 8300 RAMS (Reflection Absorption Multi-Switch) measures reflection and absorption of the process medium in the pipe at four wavelengths (blue, green, red, near-infrared). Measurement of both turbidity and color is possible.
Easy Installation
The InPro 8300 RAMS is fitted into the product pipe using a standard VARINLINE™ housing. The housing ensures both easy installation of the sensor and optimal cleaning characteristics for CIP/SIP processes.
Configuration Software
A software package is available for product identification, FTU/EBC calibration, storing of readings and for parameterization.
Factory Calibrated
Each sensor is delivered factory calibrated based on a multi-point calibration. This means no on-site calibration is necessary.
