OEM Automatic’s Pressure & Flow Business Area markets a range of instrumentation designed to measure and control the pressure, flow and level of liquids and gases.
The Pressure & Flow area has developed close partnerships with manufacturers who are specialists in their particular field. We are then able to offer a range of standard, competitively priced components or bespoke product combinations to exactly match the customer’s application. Our aim is to provide the highest quality and broadest range of hygienic process and industrial instrumentation products on the UK market.
We represent process management solutions from Anderson-Negele, Definox and Jung Process Systems, all leaders in their respective markets.
With ILM-4 it is possible to directly measure the concentration of a medium which can effectively improve the CIP cleaning process and thereby also economically advantageous.
An effective CIP cleaning is dependent on a proper cleaning process. Too low concentrations can lead to insufficient cleaning results while too high concentrations result in increased product usage and longer flushing times, which in turn results in higher financial costs. The ILM sensor is perfect for controlling the right amount of detergent concentrations.
It is also suitable for product quality monitoring.
The measurement of turbidity is an essential parameter for the automation of process runs in process engineering. We can offer sensors with different measuring methods for almost every customer application. For instance, the ITM-51 is suitable for phase separation of products e.g. in dairies (whey - cream - milk). In contrast the ITM-4 can be used for fresh water control in the beverage industry.
Anderson-Negele has suitable level switches for continuously measuring filling levels or identifying point levels – whichever your process requires. They operate on the basis of a wide range of measurement methods and are designed to meet the specific needs of our customers in the food, beverage and bio-pharmaceutical sectors.
Continuous level sensors identify the filling level in tanks or similar vessels by means of a step less method. The filling level is converted into an electrical signal for further processing. It can be displayed on location or used for process control. In addition, potentiometric filling a level sensor which measures the filling level in small vessels up to 3 m high, the hydrostatic measuring principle is employed in larger tanks or when measuring non-conductive media.
A point level switch detects that a defined filling level has been reached and emits a switch signal for process control.
Anderson-Negele Pressure Sensors and Gauges are optimized for the high requirements and standards of the Food & Beverage industry as well as for the Pharmaceutical industry.
Anderson-Negele electrical pressure transducers with or without display have a stainless steel diaphragm that is highly resistant to overload and are suitable for the precise measurement of fluids even in extremely wet environments. All materials that come into contact with the medium are FDA-approved and for pharmaceutical applications autoclaved versions with a better surface roughness are offered.
Refraction = Refraction of light beam at the transition between two materials / media with different refractive index
The IRM-11 makes it possible to measure dissolved particles in liquids with refractive index scales such as BRIX, Plato or other customer-specific devices. An LED light source radiates directly into the medium. The density of the liquid affects the speed of light and changes the refractive value.
DEFINOX is a recognised and acknowledged specialist in process valves.
The company design and manufacture high-tech products capable of satisfying the most stringent requirements for modern processes, performance, hygiene and flexibility for use in food and beverage industries world wide.
Definox products can be found in a wide variety of process applications including;
The pigging systems developed by DEFINOX are modular and easily adapted to various processes thanks to their ability to be configured to suit the system they are to be utilised in.
On-line pigging is an effective source of savings. It provides an ecological solution to the problem of waste processing and is suitable for most liquid and paste products in DIN, SMS or US pipe line standards. For more information on pigging systems see our dedicated information page, you can see the full range of Definox valves below, or, alternatively, do not hesitate to get in touch with our Product Specialists in our Pressure and Flow team by emailing: [email protected]
The innovative HYGHSPIN series is ideally suited for many applications because of its structural design advantages. Enabling efficient, hygienic and optimally adapted production process for transporting viscosities in various industries. There is also, no need for an additional CIP pump required for ‘cleaning in place’.
Jung Process Systems twin screw pumps offer complete performance for all matters. See below how Jung's HYGHSPIN twin screw pumps compares to traditional pumps in CIP cleaning and product handling:
