Common gases measured in Fermentation processes
Some areas of Brewing,
Vitamin C production
Common gas species measured.
The MS may be used to monitor and measure many points in the production processes and also “trouble shoot” process activities.
The MS has a fast response and ultra low detection limit and may be utilised to measure gas components used in the Vitamin C production process such as:
Acetone, Chlorine, Sodium Hydroxide, Sulphuric Acid, Acetic Acid, Butyric Acid, n-Butanol , Ethanol.
Methane may also be measured routinely using MS as this often indicates contamination and may be treated with Antibiotics to preserve the process batch.
