Dissolved oxygen and carbon dioxide

These methods are fast and accurate and are used to quantify dissolved oxygen and carbon dioxide in wines, using Hach ultra oxygen and CO2 sensors together with the Orbisphere instrument.

Please note that measuring dissolved oxygen for quality assurance doesn’t always give you the full story. In bottled wine much of the oxygen can actually be in the headspace. AWRI Commercial Services offers a calculator to estimate total package oxygen based on dissolved oxygen measurements. We also offer bottling line audits, which can assist your operation in improving its oxygen management.
