Nuclear reactions, π−+A (A = C;W), at an incident beam momentum of 1:7 GeV/c were measured with the HADES setup at SIS18/GSI. Detailed investigations of the K+, K− and ϕ production off nuclei are connected to the study of hadron in-medium properties at nuclear saturation density. A contradictory role is played by the ϕ meson since the ϕN absorption cross-section is assumed to be small due to the OZI suppression which is in contrast to experimental observations. We present the analysis method to identify the ϕ meson exploiting the large K+K− branching ratio (≈ 50%). The correction for acceptance and effciency effects of the detector system will be discussed as well.
