AppliTek unveils analytical solution to advance routine testing of beer bitterness

Published

AppliTek has introduced a novel testing instrument for the automatic determination of international bitterness units in beer production, which will be unveiled at this year’s BrauBeviale in Nuremberg, Germany.

With Breweries now setting targets focused on reducing energy and water consumption, process control becomes an essential part of all modern brewing practices. More and more commitments are made in order to improve efficiency and water recycling, whilst adhering to environmental regulations and hygiene requirements. The quality of the final product, however, depends on rigorous control over a set of physical, chemical and microbiological parameters that have become standard in the beer industry in the 20th century.

International bitterness units is a standard measurement of the bitterness of beers, and represents the amount of alpha acids from the hops that have isomerised by the boiling process. The more alpha acids that are isomerised, the higher the actual bitterness in the final product. Given the huge variation in bitterness components, process conditions and perceived differences in taste, beer bitterness tests have become an essential part of quality control procedures in all commercial beer production, even for Microbreweries.

AppliTek marketing executive Emmanuel Coolsaet said: “Modern breweries are high-tech production sites that provide crafted beverages with the assurance of a constantly high standard of quality. Beer bitterness tests have become increasingly part of that standard.

“AppliTek’s role is to develop and provide the right analytical tool allowing our customers to achieve rapid and reproducible results, while increasing laboratory throughput. There is definitely a gap to fill with our technology. ”

The official premiere of the IBULyzer at BrauBeviale in November will signal the starting point of the international market launch of the analyser.

Next-generation Corolla hybrid unveiled by Toyota.

Published

on

Toyota has stepped up the roll-out of hybrid models with its next-generation Corolla sedan.



The sleek new four-door hybrid sedan, unveiled at the Los Angeles auto show, will adopt the latest petrol-electric system from the fourth-generation Prius when it arrives in Australia late next year.

Sharing many of the features and technology of the popular Corolla hatch (due locally early 2019), Corolla sedan will also be available with an all-new 2.0-litre petrol engine that incorporates both direct and port fuel injection.

Handling agility and ride comfort for the hybrid and petrol Corolla sedans benefit from a highly rigid new Toyota New Global Architecture platform, low centre of gravity and new multi-link rear suspension.

Hybrid variants of Corolla sedan will be powered by the combination of a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and two motor/generators through an electronically controlled planetary-type continuously variable transmission.

The engine has been designed specifically for a hybrid application, employing the Atkinson cycle that uses a very high compression ratio along with a shorter intake stroke and longer expansion stroke than the Otto cycle.

A nickel-metal hydride battery pack, located under the rear seat for optimum cargo capacity, contributes to the vehicle’s low centre of gravity and therefore its on-road agility.

The hybrid Corolla sedan also has an EV (electric vehicle) mode that allows it to be operated solely on electric power for short distances, depending upon certain conditions, such as battery charge level.

In addition to the expected ‘Normal’ and ‘Eco’ drive modes, a ‘Sport’ mode allows for an increase in power for stronger acceleration response when desired.

Advanced Toyota Safety Sense technologies will also be available on the new Corolla and include Toyota’s latest pre-collision system, active cruise control, lane-tracing assist, automatic high beam, seven airbags and a reverse camera.
