High accuracy flow measurement of slurries and the final product
Unlock improvements to give faster production and tighter control of core and costly ingredients
One of the biggest challenges in the production of plant-based substitutes for meat and fish is to increase efficiency at lower costs without compromising the texture of the final product – the key to consumer acceptance of PBMA and PBFA. The extrusion process creates textures that are as close as possible to the meat or fish that is the target to be replaced. Maintaining all ingredients in precisely the right proportions (+0.1% accuracy of mass is possible), at the right density, at the correct cooking or cooling temperature at the required operating pressure is what we take care of.
During the handling of base ingredients KROHNE offers tank level measurement solutions for the automation of storage management. Precise sensor technology and inline weight and mass flow measurement enables a more efficient processing in production. Filling and dosing of your final product can be measured with excellent accuracy and stability with our dedicated flowmeters and systems designed for filling machines and processes.
Enabling measurement technology for New Food production
Your production processes are as individual as your products. KROHNE offers measurement technology that is precisely adapted to your needs and processes. Several special features help optimise your production:
Tailor-made solutions for your processes
Our portfolio for the Food & Beverage industry contains products for flow, level, pressure and temperature measurement as well as inline analysis in hygienic and auxiliary applications. The hygienic instruments feature conformity to EC 1935/2004 and FDA, and are EHEDG and 3A approved.
We offer flowmeters for low conductivity liquids and liquids with gas entrainment, mass and volume flowmeters for precise control of filling machines, and non-contact level transmitters for liquids and solids – even in dusty atmospheres, without any need for air purge. A wide range of hygienic connections are available for all instruments.
