MUlti SEnsor Technology for management of food processes


The concept behind MUSE-Tech is the development of three single sensors (Photoacoustic, Quasi Imaging UV-Vis and a Distributed Temperature) which will be integrated in a versatile and affordable and easy cleanable Multi Sensor Device (MSD), which can support on-line/in-line and real-time monitoring of a wide range of volatile and non-volatile food components, as well as the temperature distribution in crucial points of the process. The MSD will be based on a flexible plug-in architecture, allowing additional inputs from other sensors already installed in the process lines. Optical fibre and gas sampling systems, engineered following hygienic design guidelines, will be used for remote sensing under hash working conditions, and to simultaneously monitor critical parameters in raw and in-process materials during the process.
