In the food and beverage industry, the ability to accurately and reliably measure the level of materials in storage tanks and process vessels is essential, as it helps to reduce product loss and maximize production capability. Manufacturers also need to consider vital criteria, such as compliance with the industry’s stringent hygiene and food safety standards and compatibility with the process conditions and tank layout for the different applications.

 

 

Level measurement in mixing tanks

Level measurement in mixing tanks

Application: Stirring and mixing tanks with agitators

Challenges: Agitators, turbulence, foam, CIP/SIP processes

Solution: Rosemount 1408H Non-contacting Level Transmitter

  • The Rosemount 1408H provides accurate level measurement and is not affected by changing density, temperature, or pressure. Process conditions such as foam do not pose a challenge, but for specific applications with dense foam, please consult the factory.
  • With Fast Sweep Technology and smart algorithms, the Rosemount 1408H can easily handle agitator and turbulent surfaces.

 

 

 

Accurate level measurement in fermentation tanksAccurate level measurement in fermentation tanks

Application: Tanks or vessels where wort ferments into beer.

Challenges: Foam, CIP/SIP processes

Solution: Rosemount 1408H Non-contacting Level Transmitter

  • The Rosemount 1408H helps optimize and monitor fermentation processes, and it avoids pumps running dry or overfilling.
  • It also detects CIP cleaning thanks to the Fast Sweep Technology and smart algorithms

 

 

Level measurement in open batch tanksLevel measurement in open batch tanks

Application: Small open batch and/or storage tanks that contain various food ingredients

Challenges: Quick filling, possibly low DC, narrow tank geometry, no process connection.

Solution: Rosemount 1408H Non-contacting Level Transmitter

  • The Rosemount 1408H is compact, light, and easy to mount with a mounting bracket. It also handles quick filling thanks to the Fast Sweep Technology and 80 GHz.
  • It can be mounted in narrow installations without problems.

 

 

 

Reliable level measurement in storage tanks with CIPReliable level measurement in storage tanks with CIP

Application: Tanks used to prepare and store cleaning agents and water

Challenges: Foam, CIP/SIP processes

Solution: Rosemount 1408H Non-contacting Level Transmitter

  • The Rosemount 1408H features a polished stainless-steel housing that withstands CIP and SIP cleaning processes
  • Reduced risk of contamination in food and beverage production processes.

 

 

Level measurement in plastic tanks (IBC monitoring)Level measurement in plastic tanks (IBC monitoring)

Application: Storage tanks that can be found in any industry and in different points of the process

Challenges: Measurement through a tank roof, narrow installations with metal beams on top of the IBC

Solution: Rosemount 1408A Non-contacting Level Transmitter

  • The Rosemount 1408A has a compact form and it is easy to install on a bracket, over an IBC tank.
  • With 80GHz technology, the signal penetrates the plastic roof and avoids obstructions without any effect on the level measurement.

 

 

Additionally, the Rosemount 1408 offers a full breadth of connections, both for hygienic and non-hygienic applications. And it holds hygienic approvals that are required in the food & beverage industry, such as 3A, FDA, EHEDG.
