OLAS (Optical Light Absorption Sensor) Absorptiometry and density measurement. This Sensor (OLAS), fabricated by Werne&Thiel GbR sends light into the material of interest (medium) and makes use of the accurately measured absorption of light to determine the composition of medium.
With this method not only the composition of water slurries, suspensions and composite materials of all kinds (e.g. cement slurry, chemical pulp, etc.) can be determined, but also the thickness of foils and coatings and much else. Whatever in production, manufacturing or processing results in a change of absorption of light of medium can be measured, monitored and controlled by the OLAS .
Density measurement in concrete residual water. The development of the OLAS measuring system, an online measuring system, that determines the solid content of concrete recycling water, was initiated years ago. It has been established into a reliable and economic measuring system reaching product maturity. OLAS, named after its functionality namely:
Optical Light Absorption Sensor, makes use of a sophisticated and modernized infrared absorption measuring method, in which the measurement of light is introduced into the medium through optical fibres.
When desired, OLAS can be supplemented by the OLASTPC (OLAS Touch Panel Controller), an optimal evaluation that functions as a display and control unit that forms a complete measurement system.

Giovanni Battista Venturi “discovered” the venturi effect in 1797, and ever since the Venturi effect have been in use in fluid and airflow mechanics over a range of disciplines ranging from Aeronautics to Farming, and everything in-between.
For the Food and Beverage Industry, Centec GmbH developed the Vortex Injector using the same principle to create arguably the best mixing system for carbonation and mixing of liquids to date.
The working principle is straight forward. Fluid moves through the inlet chamber where it is accelerated and pressurized.
Moving through the mixing chamber there is an immediate pressure drop that opens the liquid and creates a vacuum. This creates conditions for a near perfect fusion of liquids and or gases. The gas or liquid is injected into the product through multiple nozzles around the circumference of the mixing chamber. The homogenous mixing of the products take place instantaneously.
The Centec Vortex Injector is especially designed for the homogeneous mixing of liquids and Gas, e.g. CO2, O2 or N2, with beer, wine, or other beverages.
Because this system is so effective the dissolving times are greatly reduced and the dosing can be done precisely and accurately. It is a proven system implemented in major Breweries, Wineries, and Soft Drink concerns.
The Centec Vortex mixer is a hydrodynamic fitting for the mixing and dispersion of multiple liquids and further applications include additive dosing of liquid ingredients (e.g. flavors, sweeteners, vitamins, colors) to a main stream.
The benefits of the Venturi Vortex Injector are numerous and includes:
· Instant, homogenous Mixing and additive dosing of liquids and gasses.
· Designed for each specific application with the unique characteristics of each product and process incorporated.
· Full CIP Capability
· Outstanding Price-to-Performance ratio
· Smaller holding loops and dissolving times resulting in more compact plant designs
· More accurate dosing ability resulting in material and time savings.

Bacteria settle among any structure (pipelines, tanks, machinery) in contact with the water in a very short time, if appropriate preventative measurements are not applied. The ALVIM real-time, on line, Biofilm Monitoring System is able to detect bacterial settlement since its first phases (down to 1% of surface covered by micro-organisms such as Legionella pneumophila) and, based on these data, manually or automatically adjust and optimize cleaning treatments / biocide treatments. This way keeping biofilm growth under control.What is biofilm?

The L3 Pressure and level transmitter has been designed to measure process pressure or hydrostatic levelin hygienic process applications for the Brewing, Dairy and Food and Beverage Industries. The state-of-the-art temperature compensation reduces errors associated with process temperature changes with improved zero stability reduces sensor interaction. The graphical user interface makes set-up and programming easy by directly aligning to the HARTTM DD menu structure. The field repairable and reconfigurable design allows the user to change the display orientation, add a remote cable, or replace a component in the field without impact to accuracy.
The range of applications includes hydrostatic level measurement in dynamic temperature environments, pressure measurement in pipes and vessels up to 110 °C (230 °F) ·and hydrostatic level, volume and mass measurement in inventory silo’s.

INSTEK CONTROL cc is celebrating 10 Years in the Import and Distribution of Quality Process Instrumentation. Looking back and reflecting on 10 years, we at INSTEK CONTROL would like to take this opportunity to thank all our loyal customers for their support and loyalty to the brand that has become synonymous with high quality reliable Instrumentation and Processing systems.
Starting out with an Exclusive Distribution agreement with Negele Messtechnik GmbH in 2007, and a dream, INSTEK CONTROL have gone through growth phases, ultimately becoming the dynamic and exciting entity it is currently.
Negele Messtechnik was a start to a much larger picture. After a Merger with Anderson Instrument Company, the trading name of Negele Messtechnik was changed to Anderson-Negele.
INSTEK CONTROL cc acquired the rights in 2010 to be the sole worldwide distributor for the LTM-2 level probe used for level measurement in the mining and related industries. Raymond Karsten the Managing Member of INSTEK CONTROL cc identified a niche application for this instrument and together with Anderson-Negele adapted this level probe specifically for applications in the mining and related industries to provide accurate level measurement in various difficult and sometimes seemingly impossible-to-measure applications. Typical applications include, but are not limited to, flotation banks, individual flotation cells, concentrate and other sumps.
In 2013 INSTEK CONTROL was awarded Distributorship for Centec GmbH, supplying De-Aeration Plants, Multi Component Mixing systems, Aerators and various other items to the Brewing and Soft Drink Industry.
Xecro, a German manufacturer of Inductive Proximity Sensors, Panel Push Buttons and Capacitive Sensors, Werne & Thiel products for Dry Bulk moisture measurement, also became part of the product portfolio.
In 2015 Alvim BioFilm sensor for the measurement of Biofouling in Pipes joined the portfolio.
In 2017 bestUV, a Dutch manufacturer of UV lamps for Water treatment became part of the Product offering.
With this complete Portfolio, we feel that we can offer you, the customer, the solution you need in your Hygienic Processes to ensure that your product quality is always of the Highest Standards.
We thank you for making this dream become a reality and look forward to another decade of exciting business and growth.
