When you are on a tight schedule and budget, being able to minimize resources and maximise product reliability is always first prize. Anderson-Negele’s ILM-4 Conductivity Sensor can do this and so much more.
Anderson-Negele’s ILM-4 – Economical and Consistent
Two words that speak to the innovativeness of the ILM-4. One area that can drive costs up in the Food and Beverage industry, is too high levels of concentrations of the cleaning agent in the tanks. Other issues are inadequate cleaning results because of too low levels. ILM-4’s conductivity sensors ensure optimization so that the correct levels are sustained and that they reduce the quantities of chemicals used.
What Happens during Cleaning Phase?
There are a few factors that are taken into account during the cleaning phase, so that a safe process runs:
- The exact concentration of cleaning agent
How is this done?
The cleaning solutions are identified based on their specific conductivity as they flow back out of the plant. They are then fed back into the appropriate stack tanks i.e. Base, acid and water via downstream valves.
As mentioned, temperature plays an integral role in this process. With optimized temperature response time, Anderson-Negele’s ILM-4 conductivity sensor can differentiate between wash and rinse cycles, thus producing a further cost savings in reducing safety margins.
Improvements – more powerful, flexible and modular
Due to the successful history of the ILM series, Anderson-Negele has been able to feed in the ILM-4 with ease. It is even more powerful and offers more comfort and flexibility. Because it is compatible with its predecessor models, it can be easily integrated into any existing process.
All adjustments can be made quite simply on the device display or via a laptop. One can adjust the measurement ranges quite freely and the calibration function allows calibrating by the plant operator onsite. In addition, any replacement of components, can also be made onsite which saves in maintenance costs and time.
