Beer analysis without the headache -chemical and microbiological monitoring for breweries

Abstract:

Monitoring a range of parameters such as bitterness, sulfite content, and spoilage contaminants throughout the beer making process ensures that you can produce safe, delicious and high-quality beer. Sign up for our webinar where we will cover how to streamline both your chemical and microbiological analysis workflows.

Chemical and microbiological monitoring for breweries:

  • Light but full-bodied beer analysis: Sulfur dioxide analysis in beer made easy using spectroscopy
  • Microbial spoilage detection in beer: workflow optimization for beer membrane filtration

Drinking Water Monitoring and Ultra-sensitive Measurement of Iron in Water

Abstract:

Water and especially drinking or bottled water monitoring is of great importance: Besides health-hazard aspects for humans (for instance nitrate in drinking water) – it also includes sensory and technical reasons. The presentation focuses on the ultra-sensitive measurement of iron by an photometric method compared to ICP-MS analysis. You will learn more about monitoring of chemical parameters in drinking water with focus on an ultrasensitive photometric analysis for measuring iron in water.

Measuring Phosphate in Ground and Surface Water

Abstract:

This event will provide scientists with updates on the latest issues faced by individuals working in these challenging analytical fields.

Separation Science, in collaboration with Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, has developed an online eSeminar focusing on the use and application of UV-vis spectrophotometry for the analysis of water. Taking place in a 1-hr session, this unique event will feaure technology experts and provide an interactive learning environment and online resource.

Featured Speakers and Presentations:

Sensitive and Reliable Measurement of ortho-Phosphate in Ground and Surface Water by Carolin Klein

This presentation concentrates on a photometric method that can be used to detect ortho-phosphate levels as low as 2.5 µg/L. Examples demonstrated are surface water samples from lakes in Germany with their phosphate levels measured using photometry. This is an important application, because too high levels of phosphate may pose a risk to both human health and the environment.

Analysing Phosphonates in Cooling and Boiler Water by Onur Akbulut

Organic phosphonate salts are mainly used in industrial cooling and boiler water applications. As antiscalants and corrosion inhibitors, the main purpose of phosphonates (organic phosphorus) is to reduce scale and remove rust, and thus lower maintenance costs. For an efficient and smooth-running system, both dosing and monitoring the concentration of phosphonates (in circulation in the system), are crucial for boiler water. Therefore, accurate and sensitive determination of phosphonates is necessarily the cornerstone of laboratory analysis.

Ultra-Sensitive Silicate Analysis in Process and Boiler Water

The webinar will discuss photometric methods for analysis of silicate in boiler and process water using an ultrasensitive photometric technique. This technique is presented as an alternative to the graphite furnace atomic absorption technique. The webinar is aimed at anyone performing water analysis on boiler and cooling water, and/or anyone interested in silicate analyses.

By attending this webinar you will learn:

  • About ultrasensitive photometric methods for measuring silicates in boiler and process water
  • Instruments and test kits for the application of this technique
  • Comparison data to GFAAS methods.
