Mass flow in blending applicationsflow in blending applications
In both inline mixing systems and in batching processes very accurate dosing of ingredients that are not conductive is needed. These flavors and essences are dosed in very small amounts, because of their high prices and their strong impact on the taste of the final product. Blending systems are constructed following the hygienic design.
Most of the ingredients that are blended in food or beverage applications are very good feed for microorganisms. CIP and SIP are standard processes. The process itself is mostly cold with the ability for condensation
Exact measurement is key in dosing and blending application. The flow meter not only needs to measure very accurately and the measured data is also used for quality control.
The Brix value in raw material and end product can be used to automatically adjust the blending.
This is necessary if there are changes in the raw material quality.
Coriolis mass flow meter Promass offer the highest accuracy. The construction is design without internal gaskets. Beside the mass flow measurement they provide information about density or viscosity. The Promass instrument fulfills the hygienic needs. They are fully made from stainless steel. Batch software and the inline quality control abilities make it first choice for use in blending applications.
