THE recent rapid growth in consumer demand for robust and attractive PET bottles and the rising demand for pre-mixed bottled beverages has transformed the filling and bottling industry.
This has resulted in an increased demand for high precision flowmeters. Endress+Hauser's response to this trend is the launch of its high-accuracy, high-speed Dosimass (Coriolis) and Dosimag (electromagnetic) flowmeters.
With space at a premium in many line and rotary filling machines, Dosimass and Dosimag are lightweight and compact and, as such, specifically suit filling and bottling applications.
Even in the most demanding process conditions, where short filling intervals or small quantities are experienced, they produce reliable, repeatable results, without any wear and tear.
"Maintenance-free and 3A EHEDG certified, Dosimass and Dosimag are billed as being the perfect replacements for conventional piston-type bottlers,” said Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Australia, John Immelman.
”In addition, because they are suitable for both CIP and SIP cleaning, they are ideal for hygienic applications."
In modern filling and bottling plants, high accuracy is essential to avoid product losses. Dosimass is suitable for such applications, as it measures mass flow or volume flow to suit specific requirements and with built-in temperature and density compensation, maximum repeatability is maintained at all times.
Even the smallest quantities of certain products are expensive and so precision flow metering is the key to future savings.
Dosimass is well suited to the food and beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and petrochemicals industries.
Dosimag, only suitable for conductive liquids, is slightly less accurate, requires more careful design installation, but is significantly lower in cost. It is suitable for the food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and chemicals industries.
Dosimag and Dosimass both feature self-monitoring and diagnostic functions to recognise and overcome problems immediately and to keep plants running at optimum efficiency.
Endress+Hauser have designed each of these measuring systems in a small size, compact unit consisting of a sensor and transmitter.
