In the food industry, absolute hygiene is crucial and high demands are placed on the measurement technology to be installed; in terms of design, functionality and reliability. The decisive factor is the exclusive use of food-grade materials of all measurement devices that come into contact with the product. Our Product Manager N. Oppenberger has been looking into the very specific requirements for measurement technology within the beverage industry. Together with J. Bareth, Area Sales Manager Central Europe, he explains solutions for overfill protection, empty notification as well as continuous level measurement of bulk goods and liquid media required for the different production processes.
We take a closer look at the manufacturing processes of carbonated drinks, beer, fruit juices, spirits, plant-based drinks and hot beverages. It’s all about varying mixing ratios, types of brewing methods, quantity of ingredients used, and so on. Different measuring points are added, some for the detection of different ingredients others for general level measurement.
Certified UWT sensor technology is your beneficial ingredient for beverage production. Cheerio!
In this session you receive an insight into how made-to-measure level measurement instruments ensure the smooth running of beverage production facilities worldwide. Our experts also demonstrate where certain technologies work and where they don't, as well as investigating particularly challenging applications giving specific recommendations what sensor technology is best suited to solve them.
