Beer DO and CO₂ Rental

/Beer DO and CO₂ Rental

Beer DO and CO₂ Rental

Immediately measure your DO and COlevels from your packaged product, or DO in your tanks before the packaging process.

Dissolved Oxygen (DO) Measurement for Beer

  • Optimize flavour – test across multiple product lines to see how DO varies
  • See how beer ages over time – test various ages of a single product line
  • Determine Total Package Oxygen using our TPO calculator
  • Stabilize flavour and increase shelf life by minimizing DO content – identify where Oxygen may be entering the process


  • Test the carbonation of beer, the consistency of its head by measuring the CO2 content across multiple batches.
  • Test and optimize your brewing procedure to ensure a consistent quality of beer every time- using the CO2 measurement device

Rental terms and conditions apply. Weekly or  monthly rental periods. Rental units are only available for shipment in Canada and the United States of America.

As a new company investing in costly equipment and trying to meet your customer’s needs is a delicate balance. IC Controls service and support is fantastic and was able to work with our specific needs. The whole process from start to finish was very efficient and was able to increase our customer trust and increase our business credibility without the expensive overhead.  The equipment was in perfect working condition and their instructions and videos were all the resources we needed to start right out of the box. “

IC Controls’ dissolved oxygen rental system for beer provides a convenient method of measuring DO and TPO. It is neat to be able to see the effect of package age for the same product as well as the differences between products. Overall, I am stoked that we can verify quality throughout the brewing process without having to invest in the equipment or maintain it!
