Dairies have been hampered by a limited selection of flowmeters to process raw ingredients and maximize productivity. Faced with limited choices for instrumentation, the Food and Beverage Industry is always interested in new products and certification. In this case, the product is a "Clean in Place" (CIP) electromagnetic flow meter (Magmeter) with Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO) approvals.

Clean-in-place (CIP) is a method of cleaning the interior surfaces of process equipmentpipes, vessels, and fittings, without disassembly. This is an invaluable technology in the dairy, brewery, beverage, processed foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries by providing a cleaning process which is faster, far less labor-intensive, more consistent, and with less chemical exposure to workers.

The Pasteurized Milk Ordinance, is published by the Food and Drug Administration further defines minimum standards and requirements for Grade A milk production and processing.

A Magmeter is an excellent flowmeter choice for dairy use because it is unaffected by suspended solids, viscosity, and temperature challenges typically found in food and beverage applications. Additionally, magnetic flowmeters provide:
  • Ease of installation with Tri-clamp fittings.
  • Stainless steel, obstruction less flow performance meets all sanitary requirements and is 3A certified.
  • Suitable for CIP and SIP cleaning.
  • IP67 I NEMA 4X rating that is upgradeable to IP68 /NEMA 6P.
Carrying a PMO approval provides the dairy with confidence and assurance that the magnetic flowmeters have been tested and approved precisely for use in their plant.
