The high energy consumption of a homogenizer pays off in the form of a more intense milk color and a nicer taste, especially when the process conditions such as flow rate, temperature and pressure conditions are stable.
In addition to the electricity needed to operate the huge motor, cooling water can have a significant effect on the operating costs. With the FlexFlow® PF20 calorimetric flow sensor, measurement of the quantity and output temperature opens up possibilities for determining consumption and evaluating changes for preventive maintenance. The compact and robust sensor can be easily integrated into the pipe.
Extremely precise and fast temperature measurement allows the homogenizer to provide the medium at an optimum temperature. The compact PT20H temperature sensor with its short t90 time allows an early reaction to prevent the milk from arriving at the homogenizer too cold.
As the pressure on the homogenization valve makes a difference to both quality and energy consumption, the MEX5 pressure gauge with damping indicates this pressure reliably at all times. Unaffected by vibrations or high pressure fluctuations, this is a robust everyday tool from Baumer Bourdon.
