“Beverage color is one of the more difficult things to control during production,” said Michael Beering, Product Manager, X-Rite and Pantone. “Any change in lot-to-lot color can make a big difference in the color of the final mix, especially when dealing with natural ingredients like fruit which can vary in color. At X-Rite, we offer benchtop instrumentation, attachments, and software designed to meet the specific needs of measuring the color of liquids. This helps beverage companies ensure product quality throughout the entire manufacturing process for maximum consumer appeal.”
Measuring Drinks and Other Liquids
For a complete color quality control solution, beverage manufacturers can use X-Rite’s Ci7000 Series of benchtop spectrophotometers with Color iQC software. The Ci7000 Series utilizes a magnetic fixture to hold a test tube for liquid measurement, enabling operators to quickly and easily measure liquids without contaminating the instrument or the sample. The Series includes the Ci7600 which offers both reflectance and transmission measurements for opaque, transparent, and translucent liquids, as well as the Ci7520 and Ci7500, which both offer reflectance measurements for liquids. The Ci7000 Series has internal humidity and temperature sensors to identify how the temperature affects color data. These instruments provide a complete audit trail for each measurement. In addition, the Ci7600 and Ci7520 can now be used for orange juice color measurement and grading.
Color iQC software is a unique, job-oriented color quality control solution that streamlines color measurement, reporting, and recording to maintain a centralized, cost-efficient process. This helps to reduce waste, improve efficiency, and supports faster color evaluation.
