Title (EN) MATURATION MONITORING APPARATUS AND METHODS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS DE SURVEILLANCE DE MATURATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention provides an apparatus and a method to monitor fluid loss from one or more casks (2) during a maturation process. The apparatus (1) comprises a multi-pass absorption cell (4) arranged in fluid communication with one or more fluid conduits (5) and a pump (8), and a monitoring system (12). The pump (8) and fluid conduits (5) provide a means for transporting a fluid sample (e.g. a vapour sample) to the multi-pass absorption cell (4). The monitoring system (12) provides a means for detecting and identifying fluid within the multi-pass absorption cell (4).
(FR)La présente invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de surveillance de perte de fluide depuis un ou des fût(s) (2) lors d'un procédé de maturation. L'appareil (1) comporte une cellule d'absorption multi-passes (4) disposée en communication fluidique avec un ou des conduit(s) de fluide (5) et une pompe (8), et un système de surveillance (12). La pompe (8) et les conduits de fluide (5) fournissent un moyen pour le transport d'un échantillon de fluide (par exemple, un échantillon de vapeur) vers la cellule d'absorption multi-passes (4). Le système de surveillance (12) fournit un moyen pour la détection et l'identification de fluide dans la cellule d'absorption multi-passes (4).
