Profamo VP Chris Nimptsch tells Ben Bouckley why consistency - and true readings of CO2, Brix and organic acid levels - is king for beverage producers, as he unveils VitalSensors' 'radical' new mid-infrared sensor, the VS3000.

"Obviously, manufacturers of any beverage, whether it be soft drinks, juices, beer, you name it, want a consistent product, want to have their consumers to enjoy the same taste profile," Nimptsch told

"Secondly, there's a financial side to this. If you're a producer of a soft drink, you don't want to put in too much sugar, too much of the various organic acids, if you're a brewer you don't want too much CO2 in your product.

With offices in Florida and California, Profamo represents, sells and services process and laboratory instruments for beverage and brewing industry.
