A turbidity meter is located on the discharge piping prior to the final pasteurized storage tanks.
Following a production run a pasteurization piping schematic is chased with water to recover pasteurized product to the storage tanks. A turbidity monitor gives indication that the product-water interface has finished moving through the piping schematic.
The Anderson Solution
The ITM-51 is located at the discharge of an HTST processing system to continuously monitor the relative turbidity of liquid in the pipeline. When a product process run is completed a water flush is initiated on the input side of the system to push the product from the system into the pasteurized storage tanks. The ITM-51 continuously monitors the solids content of the outgoing liquid and gives an analog output signal of the relative turbidity. As the turbidity begins to decline caused by dilution with water a decision is automatically made by the control system to redirect flow from the storage tanks to drain or the waste water recovery system.
The Anderson Advantage
Fast acting electronics offer quick response to product changes enabling predictable recovery
LED lamp technology avoids deterioration in measurement experienced by other illumination sources providing years of trouble free service.
Standard programmable switched and analog outputs simplify integration into plant control systems
Extended length “L” model overcomes the difficulties of measuring transition with high viscosity product applications
Selectable ranges increase resolution to achieve optimal trigger points for flow diversion
