Product loss in dairy
Crediton Dairy is a major independent UK producer of a wide-range of long life milk and cream, and flavored ESL milk products. Crediton Dairy supply many major British supermarkets’ own label products and also produce several well-known brands including MOO flavored milks, Mars Refuel and Flora Pro-Active. When Crediton Dairy was planning to maximize productivity and minimize losses in two of its process plants, they chose Tetra Pak Processing to handle installation and commissioning of the new equipment. Tetra Pak suggested METTLER TOLEDO's InPro 8300 RAMS (Reflection Absorption Multi-Switch) to reduce product losses and decrease effluent volumes.
Read in the case study how the InPro 8300 RAMS helped Credition Dairy to reduce their product loss and water usage.
METTLER TOLEDO’s InPro 8300 RAMS is an in-line optical product monitor that measures light absorption and reflection from LEDs to determine color and / or turbidity in liquids. It measures the reflection and absorption of the process medium in the pipe at four wavelengths (blue, green, red, near-infrared). The technique is sensitive to even slight changes in the color or optical density of a liquid and responds almost instantaneously. A choice of optical parameters provides the option to monitor product transitions based on optical turbidity or color measurement, similar to an in-line photometer.
The rugged InPro 8300 RAMS systems are simple to configure, easy to use and require minimal maintenance. These systems are widely used in food and beverage applications for separation, before the filler line and in separator control.
