BAUMER ELECTROMAGNETIC FLOW METERS
According to Baumer, a milliliter makes all the difference and dairy processors can save money with the company’s precise electromagnetic flow meters. Volumetric flow, flow velocity, and temperature measurement — three of the most important variables for efficient process control — are all combined in a single sensor, the electromagnetic flow meter. Baumer continues to grow its electromagnetic flow meter offerings with the compact PF55S for smaller industrial applications. Designed for larger applications, the PF75 series is available for both hygienic and industrial needs and measures media from a conductivity of 5 µS/cm. Available with hygienic process connections as well as industrial flanges, the PF75 electromagnetic flow meter also includes the easily recognizable Combiview touchscreen display for easy visualization and programming.
ACME ENGINEERING PROD. INC. PRE-FILTRATION, SELF-CLEANING OPTIONS
For food processing facilities, membrane filtration is a valuable, commonly used means of filtering water and wastewater that is gaining wider application for demineralization, desalination, stabilization, separation, deacidification, purification, and reducing microbial load. Acme Engineer Prod. Inc. suggests that a pre-filtration step can eliminate the risk to delicate membrane systems by removing oversized suspended solids to prevent damage, eliminate unnecessary maintenance, and reduce the cost of premature membrane replacement. Among the pre-filtering options available, automatic self-cleaning scraper strainers are popular because they are affordable, require very minimal maintenance or attention, and can remove solids down to 75 microns. Automatic scraper strainers allow for continuous, uninterrupted flows even during blowdown cycles and are designed to save substantial costs on maintenance and membrane replacement, the company says.
FOODSAFE DRAINS A COST-EFFECTIVE DRAINAGE SOLUTION
On the modern dairy production floor, cleanliness is a bottom-line consideration. Compromised product creates immediate losses and costs and carries long-term risks. Conventional surface drainage, like grates and trenches, creates an environment where bacteria can fester. For food and beverage processing, FoodSafe Drains offer its 10,000 Series Slot Drain, which it says is the most durable, sanitary and cost-effective drainage system available. Manufactured using T304 or T316 stainless steel, the 10,000 Series slot drain is easy to clean and fully load rated for any facility.
REAL TECH MEASURING EFFLUENT WATER QUALITY
Real-time biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD) wastewater monitoring instruments are designed to bring significant benefits to dairy production plants. Product loss is a major challenge that effects revenue while simultaneously increasing wastewater costs and surcharge fees. An opportunity for significant cost savings can be achieved through continuous measurement of effluent water quality. Real Tech’s simple, robust and affordable solutions utilize long-lasting UV LEDs to rapidly measure BOD, COD, total organic carbon (TOC) and total suspended solids (TSS) without the use of reagents. Avoid the delay of the lab with its rapid field-testing meters or real-time monitoring solutions to gain the insights needed to identify losses, improve performance, and reduce costs.
NO BAGS REQUIRED WITH 3A DAIRY STRAINER
Spencer Strainer offers self-cleaning 3A Dairy approved filter for process flow of up to 400 gallons per minute (gpm). Constructed of 316-L Stainless Steel, the GS-144-F-3A works continuously as a sealed device, so product stays within the piping and out of the atmosphere. Another benefit is that there are no bags or elements to replace, so there is no waste or downtime for filter changes, making it a sustainable choice for filtration and screening. Wedgewire screens are interchangeable, so one strainer can be used for multiple applications including cheese, ice cream, dairy products and wastewater. Industrial models available for wastewater screening to 2,500 gpm.
