MEMS Cutting Edge Technology for Winemaking

MEMS Technology for wine making
MEMS Technology for
Integrated Sensing Systems provides technology for the winemaking industry to measure brix (sugar content), concentration, specific gravity, viscosity and density at various stages of fermentation and aging.

ISSYS is currently developing a new MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) technology called WineSense™ to analyze the ethanol content and concentration during the wine production cycle. Using the proven distillation method, the WineSense™analyzer is designed to provide a cost effective and single source solution with outstanding performance and reliability. 

MEMS stands for microelectromechanical systems and is a technology that, in general, is defined as miniaturized mechanical and electro-mechanical elements made using techniques of micro-fabrication.

The new ISSYS ethanol analyzer will also for used for ciders and other fermented beverages. Accurate knowledge of ethanol concentration during various stages of fermentation is extremely important for the quality, blending and production of fermented beverages.

For more information about this new technology, contact a BCE representative.
