Our portfolio for the food & beverage industry contains products for flow, level, pressure and temperature measurement as well as inline analysis for hygienic and auxiliary applications. The hygienic instruments feature conformity to EC 1935/2004 and FDA, and are EHEDG and 3A approved. We offer flowmeters for low conductivity liquids and liquids with gas entrainments, mass and volume flowmeters for filling machines, and non-contact level transmitters for liquids and solids - even in dusty atmospheres without air purge. A wide range of hygienic connections are available for all instruments.

KROHNE offers measurement solutions for nearly all manufacturing processes in the food & beverage industry, including the production of beer, bread & cake, butter & cheese, chocolate, fruit & vegetable juice, grain, ice cream, liquid milk & cream, palm oil, pet food, soft drinks & mineral water and sugar.

For process applications:

  • Entrained Gas Management EGM™ for our OPTIMASS series: Flowmeters maintain operation over a wide range of gas fractions, e.g. air entrainments, and complex flow conditions. Furthermore, it allows for converting applications from batch to inline/continuous, e.g. by replacing loading cells with mass flowmeters, even with aerated products and reliable measurement of mass, density, and concentration of air-containing products without process interruption, e.g. with raw milk, ice cream, dough, syrup, tomato concentrate, spinach, meat, margarine, mayonnaise
  • In-line analysis of compositions, e.g. fat content in milk
  • Avoid overdosing of cryogenic cooling, e.g. on meat, through dosing based on continuous temperature measurement

Examples auxiliary applications:

  • Monitoring of CIP/SIP plants
  • Measurement of steam, hot water, compressed air, natural gas, (thermal) oil or cooling fluids
  • Gross and net heat measurement for hot water and steam with direct energy output
  • Monitoring air compressor efficiency (FAD) or gas burner consumption
  • MID MI-004 heat metering, supporting ISO 50001 energy management systems
