SITRANS LR560 at Carr's Flour
Level measurement in the grain industry
Manual measurement of grain in 26 silos? Watch the video to see how Carr's Flour put this time-consuming activity in the past. The long range and high accuracy of the SITRANS LR560 radar level transmitter provides reliable measurement in these dusty tall silos.
Products for Grain Handling
SITRANS WF100 series flow meters, along with the Siemens Milltronics SF500 flow meter integrator, improve quality and reduce inefficiencies with high-accuracy monitoring of a wide range of grain product ingredients. It's a compact, reliable solution for applications with limited installation space.
Products for Grain Milling
The importance of dairy products in daily nutritional requirements means that continuous availability and high quality are essential for manufacturers. Hygiene is also critical, given that milk is an ideal culture in which micro-organisms can grow.
Dairy production is subject to close government regulation and consumer scrutiny. Measurement and control of temperature and of fat and protein content are vitally important. Milk, cheese and fermented products, such as yogurt, all require precise production control parameters.
Products for Dairy Delivery
Raw milk delivery and quality-controlled handling is significant for every dairy. Raw milk is delivered by tanker, so the milk has to be stored to guarantee continuous running of the plant. Echomax transducers with a SITRANS LUT400 controller provides accurate and reliable tank level measurement.
Products for Yogurt Manufacturing
It is important to monitor the temperature in dairy processes to ensure constant level of quality. Siemens offers a wide range of SITRANS T temperature transmitters for different process environments. Transmitters can be installed in the sensor head or remotely.
Brewing processes often produce foam, which can negatively impact traditional level measurements. Pointek CLS200 capacitance level switch enables foam detection and automatic burner start and turn-off with accurate and repeatable level detection.
Products for Brewhouse
Precisely dosing additives is not only important for beer quality, but helps reduce costs by optimizing yield and quality. The SITRANS F MAG 1100 F magnetic flow meter, with hygienic and flexible process connections, is the ideal solution for dosing tasks in brewing.
Products for Fermentation Cellar
Valves control the filling and draining of fermentation vessels. The Siemens SIPART PS2 positioner provides precise valve monitoring and considerable cost savings with low air consumption and advanced diagnostics.
Soft Drinks Overview
Whether sports or energy beverages, carbonated drinks, or the new tea and coffee-based cold beverages, the soft drink market requires product innovation and diversification for expansion. In common with other sectors, hygiene is critical and accurate flow measurement and precise dosing are required.
Products for Sugar Treatment
Precisely monitoring pressure is an important role in the soft drink process. The level in storage, batching and make-up tanks is often recorded by measuring pressure. SITRANS P300 offers precision and ruggedness with a stainless steel housing and a wide range of hygienic process connnections.
