Our radiometric measurements are also used successfully in the food industry. Non-contact level and density measuring systems are normally used when the process conditions are so difficult that conventional techniques are unable to perform satisfactorily. The radiation intensity used in these measurements has no influence on the product being measured. The high reliability and reproducibility of our measurements are of considerable benefit to the user.
Water is a characteristic component of dairy products. It determines consistency and influences the taste as well as the quality of the final product. In most countries, the water content is subjected to severe restrictions. In Germany, for example, the water content of butter is limited to 16%. Up to now, any deviations from the set-point could only be identified at the end of the production process. Using state-of-the-art microwave technology, it is now possible to monitor the water content/ dry substance online and during production, which provides an early recognition of fluctuations. Thus, a basis for constant high quality and cost-efficient production has been established.
From butter to yoghurt – the measuring system Micro-Polar LB 566 provides continuous and real-time measuring data of the current water content / dry substance in a wide range of dairy products. The measurement can therefore be carried out directly on the main stream; a by-pass is not necessary.
The microwave based measurement is completely non intrusive, which means that there are no built-in components in the inner pipe. No additional time and effort is required for cleaning. The measuring performance is neither influenced by colour, viscosity, or non-homogeneity of the measured product.
