The dairy industry has certainly changed over the years. While some might have believed, at one time, that the dependence on milk and milk-based products would drop off, we have seen the opposite in this country. Yogurt alone has been a major driving force for the industry, but also the need for powdered milk, which is used in a wide-range of packaged meals, mixes, and sauces.
Whether it is because you need to know when it is time to add more product, or because you need to be able to properly predict process run times, knowing the level of powdered milk in your tanks is undoubtedly important to your plant. As consumer demands continue to push your business to be bigger, better, and more efficient, you want to know that you can rely on the level meters within your tanks, even when conditions are at their cloudiest.
After all, processing dry, powdered ingredients does come with one particular hazard – dust. Free flying product could cause trouble for some gauges, but those like the Khrone Optiwave 6300 Non-Contact Radar level meter are designed to operate even in the haziest environments, while still producing reliable data for those who are trying to keep business running smoothly.
Because this country is built on the backs of people who are always on the move, easy-to-prepare meals and snacks have staying power in the market. That means that powdered milk does too. Slowdowns because of miscalculations, or missed deadlines that can be attributed to improper runtime calculations can be costly. You have to rely on your equipment to do its job properly, so you can do yours. If you have found these issues to be common, perhaps it is time to consider a new level meter. The installation is quick and easy, which means that you can be up and operating right away. The added comfort of knowing that you can trust the level gauge will be well worth the investment.
