Flow Meter

Flow meter & Pump combinations

For every rotation of the pump, the pump head will displace a known volume of a liquid, resulting in a known pumped volume based on the amount of rotations.

The Importance Of Flow Control In Chocolate Production

Dosing system with automated pump dosing Have you ever thought about how you can further optimize your process by automating the dosing process of ingredients – such as flavorings – into the production line? We often see that chocolate manufacturers, or in fact the entire confectionery industry, still use scales to dose additives into the process. Whereas you can automate this by using a dosing system with flow meters. The latter method has several advantages: Advantages of dosing system with flow controller Accurate dosing of liquid ingredients; this allows you to make efficient use of the raw materials, resulting in

Top 10 Questions About Liquid Dosing

Almost every day you encounter products whose production process involves liquid dosing: when you eat sweets or a piece of chocolate, when you do the laundry or put on some nice perfume. There are countless other examples… Not only is liquid dosing used in the food industry to add fragrances and flavorings, it’s also used to add dyes to detergent and other household products. Another industry where dosing plays an important role is the petrochemical industry, where it’s used to dose additives (like catalysts). When do you need flow meters to dose additives, fragrances and flavorings? When do you need

The Importance of Industrial Automation

Why Industrial Automation Is Needed The idea of automation has a history of making workers anxious. This is because when some people hear “automation” they think “layoffs”, but the truth is that industrial automation can make their jobs easier and increases productivity. The addition of automation to an existing manufacturing workforce increases 2% on average per year. Industrial Automation Tools Industrial Automation uses control systems such as computers, robots, and information technology. An example of this is our Horner OCS controllers which are used to control different types of processes and machinery. These control systems are used to perform tasks

How To Improve Your Gas Chromatography Analysis

What is Gas Chromatography? Gas Chromatography is a commonly used type of Chromatography in analytical chemistry. This is a very effective practice when you need to separate substances of analytical interest. Gas Chromatography uses chromatographic techniques when applying a gas as the mobile phase and a solid or liquid as stationary phases. The principle of Gas Chromatography involves a controlled carrier gas stream that passes through an injector, column, and detector. Then a sample gas is injected for a short period of time, creating a gas sample plug. This is then separated into different gas components across the column. They

Precise Liquefied Gas Dosing

Our customers have many applications with chemical reactions that are conducted at high pressures. These applications frequently require precise gas dosing. You can replace organic solvents with more effective alternatives, like liquefied gases. What is Liquefied Gas? It is a gas at atmospheric pressure and room temperature turned into a liquid by cooling or compression. An example of this is liquefied carbon dioxide (CO2) which is an excellent extraction solvent for non-polar chemical compounds. There are obstacles when using liquefied gas, such as difficulty in handling these liquid/gas substances and lack of dosing precision. Bronkhorst has taken note of these
