Improve your beer quality control

All processes in the beer production must be designed to ensure continuously high product quality

Beer is brewed using naturally grown products that vary from year to year and from harvest to harvest. The brewer must react to these changes to produce a beer of stable quality, and moreover, the beer must also taste the same year after year in order to meet the customer's expectations. To hit this moving target, a lot of experience is necessary. And that is the art of brewing beer.

Our offering

Endress+Hauser is here to help you run your process consistently on a high-quality level day and night. Our state-of-the-art sensor technology supports the brewing process. Constantly improved accuracy of process sensors, along with high repeatability enables you to run your process in the most efficient manner. Our offering stands for:

  • Stable product quality

  • Reliable process measurement

  • Optimized raw material use

  • Energy conservancy

  • Best availability of the brewery



Efficient conversion of starch into malt sugar must be ensured. To find the right moment within the certain processes, innovative and accurate measurement technologies are crucial.

Monitoring in the brewhouse
Our expertise in the field

Endress+Hauser offers the largest product portfolio to optimize every single processes in your brewhouse.

  • Ensure highest reliability and accuracy using non-glass pH sensors like CPS77D and retractable holders combined with Memosens technology.

  • To see the real yield, the multi-frequency Coriolis mass flowmeter Promass Q provides temperature compensated flow, totalized value and totalized Brix or Plato° values even in entrained gas applications.

  • Rely on highest reliablity in your mash tun level measurement using the temperature compensated Deltapilot hydrostatic level sensor. Remote electronics make access easy.

  • Optimize raw material usage by adding liquified adjuncts and dextrose with high accuracy. The mass flowmeter Promass F100 provides the best temperature stability and precise measurement.


The goal of fermentation is to produce alcohol. Based on the condition of the yeast the oxygen supply level is controlled, allowing the yeast to populate at an optimum rate. Reliable temperature measurement is key throughout the complete process to ensure consistent quality batch after batch.

Quality control in brewing
Our expertise in the field

High quality RTDs in hygienic design combined with ultra-fast response time guarantee optimum temperature control. Extract measurement with an accuracy of 0.15 Plato° in fermentation vessels with Coriolis flowmeter or Vibronic density measurement ensure a stable fermentation process by allowing continuous adjustments.

  • Improve your temperature control with iTHERM TM411.

  • Optimize your extract measurement using our flowmeter Promass Q300 or the density computer FML621.


The major challenge of the conventional filtration process is related to the diatomaceous earth filtration because the diatomaceous earth can vary in quality. It is problematic for handling and disposal since it is hazardous and generates large amounts of effluent.

Differential pressure is a common indicator for filter performance. Conventional DP transmitters or electronic DP systems provide the needed reliability.

  • Improve reliability and optimize your filter performance with the electronic differential pressure system Deltabar FMD71.

Color based in-line detection of beer types

Breweries often produce many different types of beer. It is quite a challenge to keep a clear overview in production to ensure proper filling.

Process photometers
Our expertise in the field

To ensure production runs smoothly and to reduce beer loss, manufacturers must, where possible, distinguish the individual types automatically and directly inline. Dual-channel photometers are used for the measurement, making it possible to analyze color absorbance according to EBC guidelines. Together with a conductivity measurement, the individual beer types can be identified.

  • Rely on our optical sensor OUSAF22 for a precise inline color measurement.

  • Use the digital conductivity sensor Indumax CLS54D.

Cleaning in place (CIP) optimization

CIP concentration is critical to food safety but also has big impact on the use of detergent and wastewater costs.

Instruments in the CIP process
Our expertise in the field

Highly accurate conductivity measurement ensures the exact calculation of the required concentration. Level measurement of aggressive chemicals can be solved using different options depending on tank size and user preference.
