With consistent growth in the beverage sector forecast for the coming years, Titan Enterprises explains how its certified flowmeter solutions are helping producers rise to the challenges they are facing.
Titan Enterprises maintains certification for its beverage flow meters and 800 Series turbine flowmeters under NSF/ANSI 169 as equipment for food products. This accreditation is especially important for food and drink manufacturers, food production and handling machinery, and processing and dispensing, as these flow meters can be installed securely in the knowledge that they meet NSF standards. These NSF-Approved flowmeters, constructed from food-safe PVDF, are also used in the pharmaceutical and medical industries where end products are consumed.
Titan’s beverage flowmeters are widely used to monitor the accurate delivery of beer, cider and spirits in distilleries, to automated batching and dispense systems, bar taps in mobile bars and your local pub.
Collaborating with OEMs in today’s modern food and beverage industry, Titan is enhancing production processes such as fast batching, and developing technology capable of differentiating between liquids in the production line, e.g. beer and cleaning solutions.
Having been in production for 26 years, Titan’s liquid flow beverage meter is a low-cost measurement sensor used for multiple applications in the food and drink sector. It is an exceptionally effective, economical and reliable method for direct beverage dispensing – beer, coffee, spirits – and dosing additives and colourants, transferring and dispensing accurate and repeatable liquids such as syrups or flavourings into beverages, cider and beer, for example.
Neil Hannay, Senior R&D Engineer with Titan Enterprises, said: “Our expertise in beverage applications translates robust and compact design into long-term performance. We offer liquid flow measurement solutions to ensure beverage dispense systems operate consistently every time a glass or bottle is filled!”
The beverage industry is evolving fast. The alcoholic drinks market is expected to see continuous growth between 2023 and 2027, and the demand for soft drinks, including fruit juices, is at an all-time high. To meet this rising demand, major beverage producers face challenges related to waste reduction, increased throughput, inventory minimisation, and improved quality. Accurate measurement of ingredients is crucial, especially for high-value constituents used in small quantities. A ’freshly-blended evolution’ where flavours and CO2 are added at the point of dispense rather than at the bottling plant, is also being seen by drink producers as translating into big environmental and financial savings.
The accuracy and reliability of Titan’s NSF-approved beverage flowmeters contribute to efficient and consistent beverage production and dispensing solutions, and with over 24,000 sold each year, they are industry-proven worldwide.
