What is Carbonation Testing?

Carbonation testing is a process used to determine the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) present in a substance, typically a beverage such as soda or beer. The testing is usually done using a carbonation tester, which measures the amount of CO2 that has dissolved in the liquid.

There are a few different methods of carbonation testing, but one common method is to use a carbonation tester that consists of a pressure gauge, a sample container, and a release valve. To perform the test, a sample of the beverage is placed in the container and sealed. The container is then pressurized, and the pressure gauge is used to measure the amount of CO2 in the liquid.

Another method of carbonation testing involves measuring the amount of CO2 released when a sample of the beverage is heated. This method is called the “loss on ignition” method and involves heating the sample to a high temperature and measuring the amount of CO2 released during the process.

Carbonation testing is important in the beverage industry because it helps ensure that the product is consistent in terms of carbonation level and taste. It is also used to troubleshoot issues with carbonation, such as when a product is under-carbonated or over-carbonated.
