Saucy water dispensing solution

12 March 2018

Bell Flow Systems was recently approached by a manufacturer of curry sauce to provide accurate and repeatable batch control systems for measuring the water volumes used in its sauce recipes. 

The system needed to be suitable for use with a variety of different recipes – so it was important that the batch controller was easy to use and programmable for varying custom volumes of water.

For the application, Bell Flow Systems suggested the use of its BLFT stainless steel turbine flow meter, combined with a Fluidwell F130 batch controller. A fast-acting solenoid valve was also incorporated into the process. This ensured that the dispensed water flow could be quickly controlled, providing high levels of accuracy and performance from the customised batch system.

The F130 LCD display batch controller was connected to the signal output from the BLFT turbine flow meter to provide the operator with a volumetric on-screen countdown of the required batch volume. Internal control relays actuated the solenoid valve once the desired batch volume had been met, utilising automatic over-run compensation to achieve repeatability. ?

Initially, a single system was provided to the customer. However, following a period of performance testing, a further two systems were ordered, enabling operators on adjacent production lines to also automate their batch processes.
