Anton Paar: Is your DMA35 ready for the summer production surge?

Checking the fermentation process

Summer is just around the corner therefore it’s time to start getting prepared for the summer production increase. For the many beverage producers currently checking the fermentation process using the Anton Paar DMA35 Portable Density Meter now is a good time to inspect and clean the meter.

Tips to ensure the DMA35 is ready

For detailed information refer to the user manual.

  • Remove and inspect the batteries for leakage and expiry. Check for clean battery contacts in the instrument.
  • Remove pump a rinse under a tap and allow to dry before reinserting. Check for damage to the piston surface.
  • Check for damage to the fill tube and replaced if needed.
  • Visually check the measuring cell for contaminants. Suitable cleaning agents include, Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach), NaOH 1%w/w, Decon 90 (or similar). Do not allow caustic cleaners to soak for extended period to protect the glass. Always finish with several water flushes. Further information on cleaning can be downloaded below.
  • Measure water and check for zero. (Baume +/-0.2 and Plato/Brix +/- 0.3). Alternatively switch to the density mode and check the result against the table in the user manual. If outside the range repeat the clean. If still out of specification, but repeatable, proceed with the adjustment procedure.
