Liquid Level Measurement Sensors in Beverage Manufacturing Process Control

Liquid Level Measurement Sensors in Beverage Manufacturing Process Control
The food and beverage manufacturing industry is under extreme pressure to deliver quality products to consumers that meet product specifications and pass government inspections.

There’s a lot at play. A simple bottle of soda, juice or beer isn’t just filled by a machine, capped and put on the store shelf. In order to ensure consistency the product needs to be mixed, stored and dispensed with accuracy.

A recent report on the carbonated soft drink market in the U.S. shows that the beverage is still a top choice for consumers, so getting each bottling right is of extreme importance to manufacturers. Fluid switches and level sensors play an important role in ensuring this happens.

Measuring not only the amount of liquid in a tank to prevent overflow, or improper formulation, but also keeping the liquids and ingredients at appropriate temperatures throughout the manufacturing process, crisp beer, fizzy soda and refreshing juice drinks wouldn’t taste so great without these tools.

A new report from Fact.MR points to the increase in float switch and level sensor use in the food and beverage industry in the U.S. aiding in everything from equipment malfunction protection to sanitation as well as temperature monitoring.

With liquid level sensors, it’s possible to ensure that components within a tank remain consistent. The right mix of ingredients, maintained at just the right temperature is critical in this industry. Level sensors are also used to prevent overflows, spills and costly machine breakdowns that interrupt production.

The materials that the level switches are constructed of, such as stainless steel or polypropylene, and how it is mounted on or inside of the tank will vary depending on the liquid and environment, making every sensor application solution different.
