Advanced measurement solutions for edible oil production

Optimisation of hygienic processes through key technologies

A high-quality product often means a challenging production process. Manufacturers of Edible Oil have special requirements, starting with the input logistics through to measurement accuracy – often down to the gram. KROHNE has a dedicated Global Industry Division which accepts these challenges and offers dedicated measurement solutions for the Food & Beverage industry.

In the edible oil manufacturing process, achieving high quality, safety and efficiency is the priority: this sets highly challenging demands on the measurement technologies used. Please accept our invitation to meet in person, or online, to discuss your process improvement potential. Let us help to enable the evolution of your manufacturing process with our industry and application know-how and high-quality products.

One of the biggest challenges in the manufacture of Edible Oil is to increase efficiency and to lower costs without compromising the quality of the final product. Besides precise flow, pressure, temperature and analytical instruments, KROHNE supply mass flowmeters with the highest density accuracy on the market. The flowmeters maintain operation over wide range of air entrainments, high viscosities, temperature variations and lower pressure drops. During handling of base ingredients, KROHNE offers level measurement solutions for tanks with constant switching density. Furthermore the pressure transmitters with ceramic membrane are fast reacting and operate temperature independent and with no risk of leakage.

Key technologies for the edible oil market

Reliable measurement of viscous edible oil with air entrainments and lower pressure drop

With higher viscosities comes high pressure drop. KROHNE features unique straight tube Coriolis mass flowmeters that benefit the smallest pressure drop. In combination with our EGM technology your process is optimised even when there’s entrained air present.

Radar measurement solutions for tanks with constant switching density

DP-level is still widely used within the process industry. However switching densities can give different results. Installing the latest FMCW Radars can neglect this issue. Enjoy a more accurate reading that is contactless to the medium and density independent.

Pressure transmitters with ceramic membrane: Fast reacting - temperature independent - no risk of leakage

Pressure transmitters with ceramic membrane: Fast reacting – temperature independent – no risk of leakage

Ceramic membrane pressure transmitters are advantageous over a metallic diaphragm when it comes to edible oil processes. No filling fluid can come into contact with the product. Furthermore the product features a low temperature influence and quick response time even at high process temperatures, 100% vacuum resistance and is highly robust.

Optimisation of utilities through smart meter valves

FOCUS 1 is the first smart meter valve on the market that combines valve, flow, pressure and temperature sensors, unique diagnostic and control functions in a single device. The product innovation is especially ideal for the optimalisation of utilities.
