KegData’s Innovative beer monitoring solution uses pressure sensors

  • Posted Date: 31 March 2015

KegDatadeveloped an innovative beer monitoring solution using the principles of fluid dynamics. Beer is drawn off of a keg through KegData’s patented coupler. At the heart of the system is NXP’s pressure sensor which measures the differential pressure between beer and a propellant (CO2). The hydrostatic pressure of the beer as compared to its propellant at a fixed height above the bottom of the keg is convertible to a volume of fluid remaining in the keg. All data is wirelessly transmitted to a central hub. This provides keg purveyors a more efficient way to manage inventory and prevent product waste.
