Global Food Manufacturer Automates Their process, Saving Thousands of Dollars

by | Nov 9, 2015 | Flow, Measurement Instrumentation


Every food and beverage company knows that product loss is a major issue and can have a significant impact on their profitability. At this company, they track edible oil. They need to be able to measure oil consumption and loss from its arrival at the factory to final disposal or consumption. The problem was that they were tracking all of this information manually, which was causing oil loss variances over 10%. It was also a very time consuming process.

To remedy this problem, the manufacturer decided to automate their facility with a central host system. All flowmeters and tank level instruments were fitted with wireless upgrades and a gateway that captures and transmits the data back to the host system using Ethernet/IP.

After automating their process, human errors were eliminated as well as oil loss variances allowing the company to save thousands of dollars.
