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

Flow Meters In The Food Industry

In the food industry there are many processes in which gas flows or liquid flows need to be measured or controlled. Flow meters or flow controllers are used in aeration processes for beverages or ice creams and for dosing applications such as adding ingredients – like flavorings, colorants and aromas – in confectionery products. But besides food processing applications, flow control is also used in sterilization processes of packaging. In this blog I’ll share some applications stories in more detail: Flow controllers for additive dosing There is a huge variation in candy available on the market, each brand with its

How Mass Flow Controller Can Support The Pharmaceutical Industry

Bronkhorst recently had a customer who needed support with the exact dosing of pharmaceutical excipients. This customer was planning a continuous Pharmaceutical manufacturing facility. Batch process manufacturing Traditionally, most human pharmaceuticals are manufactured in a step by step batch process with extensive tests between steps to ensure consistent quality and efficacy of the finished medicine. The manufacture of pharmaceuticals is a highly-regulated process with Government agencies inspecting and approving both the process and the facilities where medicines are manufactured. In 2016 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allowed for the first time in its history a manufacturer to switch

The Role Of Flow Control In Hydrogen Production

Hydrogen has become a hot topic recently. Besides application in the traditional industry, we see more and more applications in the sustainable energy sector. Flow meters play an important role in Hydrogen Production, as reliable and precise flow measurements are essential to the process. For many years now, we have been supplying flow meters to HyGear in Arnhem (NL), which they use in their steam reforming units. Bronkhorst spoke with Ellart de Wit, CTO of HyGear, to find out more about this interesting market, the steam methane reforming units they develop, and the role that our flow meters play in

Mobile Calibration Setup For Flow Meters

How do you know for sure that the gas flow that you measure or set is right? The answer is quite simple: make sure that the flow instrument you are using to measure the gas flow gives the real value. Therefore, calibration (and adjusting) of the flow meter, at times, is necessary. What Is Calibration? Calibration is comparing the measurement value of a device under test – DUT – with a known (reference) quantity. Results of calibration are stored in a calibration certificate. In this particular case, Bronkhorst has developed a mobile calibration setup for a customer in the chemical
