Global competition, ever-increasing high costs for water consumption and the disposal of wastewater necessitates continuous monitoring of the same in food & Beverage industry which predominantly requires huge water consumption.
Flow measurement is a vital part of food and drink manufacturing, from filling vessels to measuring ingredients and controlling cleaning processes keeping both quality and hygiene as highest priority.
The commonly known clean in place procedures use demineralised water as well as expensive chemicals to remove scale, bacteria and debris from process vessels and pipework.
Time based product changeover within the same process line or as part of the cleaning process, is common to ensure that new product has started to flow and all of the initial product has gone.
This requires most apt flow meter to be deployed which not only measure flows but also uses density factor and the acoustic transmission to determine the introduction of new product in same line . Clamp on flow meter perfectly fits in this scenario.
