Level Sensors for Dairy Processing Plant
Dairy is one of the most demanding and top-ranking industries, which is likely to grow remarkably in the coming years driven by greater interest in nutrition. The production takes place in serious environments which require hygienic and high precision instruments. Sapcon provides solutions that are particularly designed for hygienic applications. One of Sapcon's fork level sensors, Elixir-T-Uni, also has international certification from EHEDG.
EHEDG Certification : A first for Sapcon Instruments can help you understand the certification and the product better.
Raw Milk Storage
Raw milk is brought from farms to dairy plants in containers. For further processing, milk is poured into large tanks that require level transmitter Capvel-ICT for continous monitoring of the level of milk in these tanks. For accurate level measurement of milk that needs buildup immunity, Elixir-T-Uni can be used.
Pasteurized Milk Storage
Clean-In-Place is the process of cleaning the interior surface of storage and processing vessels, tanks, etc. without disassembling them. This process is crucial in hygienic applications which work with water, acids and other chemicals. The process helps eliminate the bacteria and remove other remnants sticking on the equipment walls. Elixir-T-Uni can be used in such applications owing to its compact size and smooth surface finish which allows easy cleaning.
Butter Storage Tank
Butter is a sticky application material that can stick on the level sensor's probe and form coating. However, this coating does not affect the sensor's level measurement as the sensors for this application are designed using coating compemsating algorithms. For instance, Coat Endure is immune to coating of application material. For high temperature durability, SLC Series can be used.
Jaw Cooling Balance Tank
The milk is cooled to 4°C to extend its shelf life and the growth of microorganism is reduced by cooling the milk in jaw cooling balance tanks. Elixir-T-Uni comes with smooth surface finish tines that are ideal for hygienic applications.
