The exact dosing of food oil plays an important role in the production of food. The challenge facing your plant: Controlling oil through the pipeline as quickly and precisely as possible. Be it baby food or mashed potatoes: The FLOWave flowmeter keeps your flow under control.
Teamwork Sensor and valve must work as a team to ensure that exactly the required
Hygiene Hygiene plays an important role in the production of food. This applies
in particular to baby food.
It is all about the quantity – your plant needs to measure and control the volume flow of food oil through the pipeline exactly.
Flow measurement: FLOWave vs. Coriolis
How does the FLOWave flowmeter compare to a conventional Coriolis meter? We tested both devices one after the other at a customer’s plant with soya bean oil (viscosity approx. 100 mPa/s). The result: The flow is 30 times faster with FLOWave.
Hygiene is the top priority in the production of food. The good news: FLOWave measures under completely hygienic conditions. Its stainless steel measuring tube does not require any sensor elements. Your advantages: No pressure loss, no maintenance, easy cleaning. How does it work? The flowmeter is based on patented SAW technology.
Measuring with SAW technology? Measuring without sensors in the measuring tube: This is enabled by Bürkert’s SAW technology. SAW is the abbreviation for “Surface Acoustic Waves”. These are surface acoustic waves that help to measure the flow of fluids. The principle originates from nature and occurs, among other things, in seismic activities.
System solution for precise measuring
When the sensor (1), dosing valve (2) and controller work as a team, the exact amount of food oil flows. Bürkert therefore offers you a fully-configured system solution. This is then simply integrated into your plant. You can install the system horizontally, vertically or diagonally – FLOWave always delivers exact results.
