Drink flow measurement

20 February 2009

UK flowmeter specialist Litre Meter has introduced a range of flowmeters from Swiss manufacturer Digmesa which specialises in drink flow measurement

Digmesa meters are used in coffee and vending machines and in bars and other establishments where drinks must be served in measured quantities.

They're currently measuring the flow of fluids including water, coffee, tea, wine, beer, fruit juices, cola, mineral water and milk in locations from German Bierkellers to the airport in Sydney, Australia, where all drinks served in the bars are dispensed through Digmesa meters.

The meters offer a measuring accuracy of +/- 0.25 per cent, even in long term operation and across a temperature range from -10 to +120°C. The design is based on detection of electronic pulses generated by an impeller turned by the fluid flow.

Different materials, bearings and electrical properties can be supplied to meet the needs of different applications, including variants that can be used to automatically switch off pumps or other equipment if flows fall below speficied levels.

The Digmesa product line complements the range of flowmeters built by Litre Meter in its own premises in Buckingham. The company offers a broad range of metering technologies suitable for virtually every liquid, gas or steam measurement application and has particular expertise in measuring low flow rates.

Alan Christie of Litre Meter said: “Litre Meter’s strength has traditionally been in flowmeters for particularly demanding situations, often with meters almost custom-designed and built for particular applications. Digmesa gives our customers access to an off-the-shelf range of accurate and robust meters which meet the needs of a vast range of drink vending, blending and dispensing applications.”
