Achieving accurate, automated transitions saves money by:
• maximising the amount of product that goes into the packaging;
• speeding up change times and reducing plant downtime;
• reducing waste treatment costs by reducing the amount of product diverted;
• reducing water consumption;
• creating opportunities for solids recovery.
Exact transitions equal better returns
Time and flow measurements are inaccurate and, to guarantee a complete transition, most plants take a conservative approach and either run a lot of product or a lot of water to the drain.
Realising that transitions based on time and flow are inefficient and wasteful, some plants use single-beam or conductivity sensors instead. Unfortunately, neither are as good as Quadbeam’s multi-beam sensor. Single-beam sensors drift over time and give inaccurate readings, and their glass lenses are vulnerable to leakage and breaking. Conductivity sensors are slow and need re-calibration.
Quadbeam sensors are simply more accurate than alternatives because they self-compensate. That means they stay true to their initial calibration so you can transition exactly when you want to, and maximise your production.
