Steinfurth NICO2

Non-Invasive Handheld CO2 Tester

A reliable measuring method is the basis for optimal monitoring of the carbon dioxide content in soft drinks, beer and sparkling wine. Both – taste and shelf life of the product are affected by the amount of CO2 dissolved in the product. The STEINFURTH NICO2 accurately calculates the CO2 content based on pressure and temperature (physical Law of Henry Dalton). The NICO2 instrument works with patented non-destructive laser technology and is currently the one and only handheld solution in the market (worldwide).

The very compact design combined with sufficient measuring accuracy opens new applications in quality control in packaged beverages (in trans-parent containers).

For measurement the NICO2 is settled down on the bottle and swayed to and for over the container headspace area. During measurement the actual pressure and temperature values are shown on the display. When the instrument detects sufficient information for CO2 determination, the CO2, pressure and temperature results are automatically calculated and displayed on the touchscreen and stored into memory.
