A first for inline measurement in hygienic applications?

23 July 2017

The SICK Dosic ultrasonic flowmeter brings the benefits of ultrasonic inline measurement for food and beverage processes where stringent hygiene and corrosion resistance are a necessity. 

Designed with fully stainless steel wetted parts without in-channel seals or moving components, the new flowmeter is suited to use with conductive and non-conductive liquids, including demineralised water. It offers high-temperature resistance for CIP and SIP procedures, and carries full EHEDG certification and FDA conformity.

 With easy ‘plug and measure’ set up the flowmeter is able to detect changes regardless of the medium and automatically adapt to them. Dairy trials have demonstrated that typical pumping/batching sequences of milk, cleaning fluids, water and cream can be interchanged without a need to change any settings in the sensor. 

The SICK Dosic is also suited to large-scale batch pumping and dispensation applications.  Being compact – it can be held it in one hand – and can be used for measurement on trolley-based mobile pumps, for transfer and vat filling applications. 

A range of analogue and digital outputs are included as standard, which can be individually configured based on either liquid temperature or liquid flow measurement. Process data and diagnostics, can be visualised or communicated to higher level control systems or cloud based analytics via the integrated IO Link communication. The on-board LCD display features buttons for easy configuration and operational monitoring. The SICK Dosic is said to be suitable for wide range of duties with DN15 and DN25 diameters and a flow range between 0.5l/min and 250l/min.
