Just the Way You Like It
Special Filling System for Beverage Ingredients
For filling its 1000 litre containers with beverage ingredients, Döhler GmbH
opted for the verifiable "IND690fill" weighing solution from METTLER TOLEDO.
This choice was motivated by the way it can be integrated into a Siemens
SIMATIC S7 control system, the way the weighing software can be customized
and its ability to handle special weighing systems.
Consumers are demanding a more varied
diet. The Döhler Group has made its business by identifing trends at an early stage
and is now the market leader in Europe
for the development, production and sales
of ingredients to the drinks industry –
e.g. fruit juice concentrate, fruit preparations and flavourings.
In Darmstadt, Döhler GmbH required a
verifiable solution for filling 1000 litre
containers with beverage ingredients.
It was imperative that the filling system could be operated with a Siemens
SIMATIC PCS 7 control system. The task
was now to establish a suitable measuring
technique:
The Advantages of Weighing
Technology
Döhler decided on weighing technology
overflow meters, as this offers a number
of profitable advantages, in particular for
filling applications: With this measuring
principle, factors such as consistency,
conductivity, temperature, possible frothing or generation of bubbles in the weighing sample do not affect filling accuracy.
This allows both overfills and costs to
be reduced.
Another advantage of weighing technology is the highly robust and lowmaintenance design, which is capable
of withstanding wet ambient conditions
and high-pressure cleaning. The fact
9
Filling Systems
that weight sensors do not come into
direct contact with the substances used
also boosts service life. As a result, they
will not be affected by wear caused by
abrasion or by corrosion resulting from
contact with chemicals, as is often the
case with other measuring methods.
For Döhler GmbH, this not only guarantees reliable processes, but also safeguards their investment.
Automation Made Easy
METTLER TOLEDO’s easy to integrate
IND690fill filling solution has been well
received. This verifiable weighing terminal communicates easily with PLCs (e.g.
via Profibus®) and sends control signals
for conveying systems and dosing valves.
Another significant advantage was the
option of customizing weighing software
programming: The METTLER TOLEDO
engineering team adapted the IND690fill
to Döhler’s exact requirements and process steps and got everything ready for
verification.

Trouble-free Construction of
Special Weighing Systems
Due to the special construction of the
1000 litre containers, it was not possible
to use a standard weighing platform. Even
in this situation, the METTLER TOLEDO
engineers were able to help by designing
a suitable weighing platform, which can
safely accommodate containers with a
capacity of 1000 litres (and above) and
which can be loaded by fork-lift trucks.
Döhler GmbH has successfully put four
of these filling systems into operation
in Darmstadt and considers the competence of METTLER TOLEDO – above all
the expert consultation and project management from the “process automation”
engineering team – to be an important
advantage for its company.

Making a Measurable Impact
on Productivity
Realizing, maintaining and improving the productivity
of your manufacturing processes require thoughtful
equipment design, proactive care and dependable partners.
When you are accountable day-in and dayout to meet internal production targets or
make just-in-time deliveries to customers, you can’t just leave things to chance.
The productivity of your process depends
on the application of the right weighing
equipment, proper maintenance and verification that your process meets requirements. The right equipment must satisfy
process accuracy, application, operational
and duty-cycle requirements, as well as
size, hygienic construction and functional specifications. The on-going productivity and quality of your process, even
with the perfect equipment, depends on
a proactive maintenance and calibration
certification plan.
An effective proactive maintenance plan
begins with an evaluation of your business
risks associated with potential downtime
and inaccuracy. A weighing equipment
device in one process may only need occasional maintenance to ensure its availability, whereas in another process, the
same device may need frequent and spe-
cific periodic maintenance to guarantee
its uptime. METTLER TOLEDO is uniquely
qualified to make a correct assessment of
the maintenance requirements for your
weighing equipment. We evaluate the
risks, use, operational complexity, work
environment and your maintenance budget. Based on this evaluation we design the
right proactive maintenance plan to ensure productivity and quality.

Product Inspection Systems
Product Inspection Solutions
Provide Quality Assurance and Brand Protection
At the R&R ice cream manufacturing site in Germany approximately
250 000 pallets of ice cream are produced annually comprising of over
2000 different variations. To ensure their products are of the highest
quality, R&R rely on METTLER TOLEDO to support them in their product
inspection requirements.
Nasch, Schatztruhe, Landliebe and
Botterbloom – these are all wellknown delicious ice cream brands
and licenced products produced by
R&R Ice Cream Deutschland GmbH.
The recent merger of the German-based
company Roncadin and Richmond Ice
Cream in Great Britain has now made
R&R into one of the lar­gest ice cream
manufacturers and distributors across
the who­le of Europe.
Garvens XE3 checks
ice cream packages
Although the vast variety of R&R products
vary greatly in terms of their taste and
their recipe, all products have one thing
in common – they are manufactured
in compliance with the highest quality
standards. Due to the highly perishable
nature of milk, great attention is placed
on the highest level of care and the best
possible quality assurance as well as the
greatest possible degree of consumer protection for all products produced. Both of
R&R Ice Cream Deutschland GmbH's production sites are certified in accordance
with the EFSIS standard.
Ensuring Product Completeness
At the lollipop production line, an XE3
checkweigher from METTLER TOLEDO
Garvens checks cardboard boxes with a
set filling of 3 or 12 units for completeness. The checkweigher detects cardboard boxes that are not completely filled
and automatically removes these from
the production line. At a line speed of
4
METTLER TOLEDO
Dairy & Beverages News 9
52 metres per minute, up to 150 packages can be inspected each minute.
Thanks to optimally positioned product
guides, the open cardboard boxes are reliably transferred to the customer conveyor
belt after being weighed.
Detecting Metal Contaminants
A metal detector from METTLER TOLEDO
Safeline, adjacent to the checkweigher,
inspects Weight Watchers’ fruit sundaes
Unsatisfactory products are
reliably rejected by the XE3
Metal detection protects consumers and brand reputation
to ensure that they are free from all traces
of metal contamination. With a unique
detection sensitivity the “Profile” metal
detector detects even non-ferrous metals
such as non-magnetic types of stainless
steel. Furthermore, the Profile can be
easily integrated into existing production lines and thereby ensures automatic
quality assurance.
Inspecting Products in
Metallised Packaging
On the “Cono-Line” at the R&R production facility, cardboard boxes filled with
ice cream cones are checked using an
x-ray inspection system. The AdvanCheK
from METTLER TOLEDO Safeline
X-ray Inspection enables reliable detection of foreign bodies such as glass,
metal, stone and high density plastics.
Up to 1 mm stainless steel splinters and
2.5 mm small broken glass particles can
be reliably detected and automatically
rejected despite metallised packaging.
Furthermore, the x-ray inspection system can also detect broken or incomplete
products.

Metal Detection
Consistent and Reliable Metal Detectors
Ensure Production of Safe Product
METTLER TOLEDO Safeline metal detectors enable Quali Tech, a manufacturer of flavour particulates
to produce safe, high quality products for food processing companies around the world. The gravity-fall
inspection systems provide high sensitivity, maintenance-free reliable performance and easy sanitation.
“Quality and safety are our primary
objectives,” says Mike Hodgens, corporate
vice president of operations at the Chaska,
Minnesota based company. “Our products
have an amplifying effect. One truckload
of our product becomes many truckloads
of our customers’ products. So, we’re very
careful to deliver only the highest quality
product.”
End of Line Detectors
Most of the company’s processes involve
grinding and blending of ingredients
from a number of sources. Although Quali
Tech’s machinery is stainless steel, both
ferrous and non-ferrous metals can show
up in the ingredients. So a key element
of its quality and safety efforts are metal
detectors. “They’re at the end of the line,
the last quality check before our product
goes into its container,” says Hodgens.
“Above everything else, we measure the
success of our metal detectors based on
the production of safe product but there
are other factors too, like maintenance
and sanitation,” he adds.
Quali Tech produces hundreds of products on each of its production lines, which
handle up to one ton of product per hour.
To eliminate possible cross-contamination, workers disassemble and fully sanitize the metal detectors during product
changeovers.

METTLER TOLEDO
Dairy & Beverages News 9
Reliability Is Key
“We have purchased metal detectors from a
number of different manufacturers over the
years,” says Hodgens. “We had issues with
some of the designs and one required a lot
more maintenance than we had expected.
But we also had one from Safeline, purchased in 1995. It was like an island of
sanity in all the chaos. Because it gave us
no problems, it wasn’t top of mind. It took
us a while to realize just how reliably it
operated.”
"Zero Metal Free Zone" Technology
So last year, Quali Tech installed its third
metal detector from Safeline. The purchased Gravity FlowHD detects and rejects
all tramp metal contamination from dry,
free-flowing bulk product lines. The unit
features patented “Zero Metal Free Zone”
(ZMFZ) technology, which reduces the
length of the in-feed pipe and allows
the reject device to be positioned close to
the detector without interference or false
rejects. The ZMFZ technology minimizes
the overall height of the system while
maximizing detection sensitivity.
Key Customer Benefits
• High detection sensitivity to all metal contaminants maximises product quality
• Easy clean design reduces the potential for cross-contamination issues
• Short overall system height enables installation to take place in areas with restricted headroom
• Smooth, quiet reject operation minimises vibration during operation and eliminates false rejects
Consistent Reject Mechanism
A “cowbell” style reject valve, which
incorporates high speed pneumatics with
a cushioned cylinder, assures accurate
removal of contamination while minimizing system leakage. “The reject mechanism on the Safeline unit is very quiet
and smooth. It’s a very good design,”
explains Hodgens. “On most other systems, the reject device uses a lot of force
to react quickly. That force translates to
noise and vibration, which impacts the
ability of the detector to remain stable
over time. In contrast, the Safeline system is consistent and reliable. Everybody
from maintenance to production to quality assurance knows they don’t need to
worry about the Safeline metal detector.”
Sensitivity and Reliability
Hodgens says he believes the Safeline
units offer the best detection sensitivity,
as well as maintenance-free reliability
and easy sanitation. “Typically, there is
a trade-off between sensitivity and reliability but not with this equipment.
The Safeline metal detectors are very
unusual – we get a more durable unit
that also performs more consistently at
high levels.”
Quali Tech has been operating its first
Safeline metal detector 24 hours a day,
five days a week for 12 years. During that
time, the company made only one service call request, and that was their own
doing – a forklift operator ran into the
keyboard. Also impressive was the service from Safeline’s local sales rep firm,
Westlake Packaging.

Powdered Cheese Manufacture
Replacement of Lost Products by
Automated Non-glass pH Measurement
During the cheese drying process a significant amount of product is lost through
the wet scrubbing of the exhaust air. With the use of the METTLER TOLEDO
EasyClean 400 and InPro 3300 pH sensor this lost product can be recovered and
the water reused.
Cheese Production in the US
About 2 ⁄ 3 of the milk produced in the
United States is converted to cheese or
cheese products. This roughly equates to
43 billion kg of cheese annually. A significant portion of this cheese is used for
producing powdered cheeses, with applications ranging from cheese flavoring to
powdered cheese coatings on snack foods.
Most major producers of cheese will
powder their cheese in one form or
another.
Cheese Drying Process
The process of making powdered cheese is
a fairly simple one. Cheese is melted into
a liquid form and is mixed with water and
salts to achieve a mixture that is about
35 % solids at a temperature of about
75 °C. The mixture is atomized into a
large column that has an internal temperature of 180 to 190 °C. The resulting
cheese powder falls to the bottom of the
vessel and is collected for further processing or packaging. During this process
the hot exhaust air is vented and usually
goes through a wet scrubber to capture
the fine cheese particles before going to
atmosphere.
What the Customer Needed
A large US cheese manufacturer wanted
to optimize their process to reduce the
amount of cheese lost to the scrubbers.
This would reduce costs in two ways:
1) minimize the amount of valuable
product lost through the scrubbers,
and
2) minimize the wastewater treatment
cost by reducing the amount of
dumped scrubber water.
Our customer investigated the possibility
of reusing the scrubber water as opposed
to dumping it, enabling them to reclaim
the cheese from the scrubber water and
save on water by reintroducing it into the
cheese / water mixture. What they confirmed was it was not only a viable option,
but could also be a significant cost saving.
A major parameter of the process for
reuse of this water was to monitor the pH
to a very tight tolerance, as narrow as
± 0.2 pH in some situations.
This tight pH range is vital, both
■to the efficiency of the reclamation
process and
■to the way water and acid is
dosed into the scrubber.
Once the scrubber water is saturated it is
then dumped to the waste water for further
processing before being released to the
municipal water system while new water
is brought in to repeat the cycle.
InPro 3300 pH sensor

METTLER TOLEDO
Dairy & Beverages News 9
Another critical requirement for this
application was that it needed to be a nonglass solution. This process was very near
to the final stages of processing so a glass
pH electrode was out of the question.
METTLER TOLEDO Solution
METTLER TOLEDO recognized the
difficulty of this application and recommended a solution that would not only
address the technical aspects but also help
in the automation of a process which was
in the past, very labor intensive.
The following components, together, form
a full measurement, cleaning and calibration system:
■The InPro 3300 ISFET solid state pH
sensor
■The M700 transmitter with the EC 700
module and additional 2700 i module
for the use of the InPro 3300 sensor
■The EasyClean 400 automated cleaning and calibration system
■The InTrac 798 e hygienic housing
By leveraging our knowledge of the Food
and Beverage industry with our advanced
liquid analytics product line, we were able
to offer a total solution to achieve the
process improvement targets of the customer and deliver results to their bottom
line.
Precision, Reliability and Safety
METTLER TOLEDO’s InPro 3300 sensor
satisfied the first critical need of the
customer; accurate pH measurement
with a non-glass sensor. By using the
EasyClean 400 system in combination
with the InTrac 798 e housing we were
able to tackle multiple problems with
outstanding results:
■Increased accuracy and reduced manpower:
The customer found that by conducting
calibrations close to the range of the
process parameter they were able to
maintain a very high level of accuracy.
The EasyClean 400 is able to do this
through its automated calibration feature and reduce the manpower that is
normally required. Accuracy was maintained automatically and was verified
through off-line side by side sampling.
The level of confidence in the system
grew with each sample as the system
proved it was able to calibrate itself consistently without any user intervention.
Key Benefits of the InPro 3300
■Unbreakable sensor
■pH 0 to 14
■0 to 80 °C (32 to 176 °F)
■0 to 6 bar (0 to 87 psi)
■45 ° design prevents air bubble
problems
■Stable measurement values
■Almost no alkaline or acidic errors
■Rated to IP 68
■Hygienic design / sterilizable
■Increased sensor life:
The EasyClean 400 delivered longer sensor life through the automated
retraction and cleaning of the
InPro 3300. The process concerned is a
very high protein application and constant cleaning is essential in order to
maintain the accuracy required.
As with most F&B applications this is
usually accomplished with in situ hot
CIP cycles. In order to protect the InPro
3300 from these harsh cycles the
EasyClean 400 system retracts the sensor and places it in a buffer solution
during CIP cycles. When the dryer system is ready again the sensor is
calibrated and sanitized by the
EasyClean 400 and placed back into the
process. This was easily accomplished
through the use of the custom programming features of the EasyClean 400.
Key Benefits of the
EasyClean 400
■Automatic cleaning and sensor calibration
■Freely programmable cleaning
sequences and time intervals
■Minimum consumption of buffer and cleaning solution
■Flexible system integration
■Low maintenance costs
Summary
METTLER TOLEDO has been working
with the Food and Beverage industry for
many years and has the expertise and the
product portfolio to meet the tough
requirements of this industry. Our customer has a harsh application with some
critical requirements. With our non-glass
InPro 3300 and our EasyClean 400 automated cleaning and calibration system,
we helped our customer achieve their targeted process improvements with additional cost savings and operational benefits
better than they initially expected.

Density & Refractive Measurement
Berlucchi
A Glass of Pleasure
Grapes sampled with GPS, intelligent presses, timely laboratory testing: the art of
making wine is changing. Over 40 years, the passion and commitment to the Italian
classic method together with utilization of modern technologies contribute to the
success of the Berlucchi brand.
Precision Farming
Franciacorta, situated in northern Italy,
has partly morainic grounds and is ideal
for viticulture. Franco Ziliani developed
a high quality sparkling wine here in the
1960s – thus, Casa Berlucchi was born
and, in over 40 years, has reached an
almost 30% share of the market and an
increasingly important presence in international markets using the classic Italian
method.
This company now incorporates tradition
and experience using the most modern
and advanced techniques. With the 2008
vintage, the Berlucchi’s vineyards benefit
from ‘precision farming’, making it possible to determine the harvest date and
grape destination of the various product
types. The technique consists of mapping
10
METTLER TOLEDO
Dairy & Beverages News 9
land parcels according to soil type and
photographing them with infrared rays.
The images are then processed according
to color. Red areas are characterized by
slower growth in maturity, higher acidity
and lower sugar levels and green areas
identify the fruit with higher sugar and
lower production loads. Based on these
maps, the sampling technician moves
between the rows with a handheld GPS
and visualizes his position in real-time,
collecting reliable samples for different
ripeness levels.
Grapes are then pressed and vinified separately, creating wines with surprisingly
different characteristics even when generated from the same vineyard. This practice is supported by two presses capable of
working continually. Benchmarks are an-
Analytical lab of Berlucchi
alyzed at each pressing stage (brix, total
acidity, pH, etc.), the juice enters various
tanks and, after the refrigerated limpid
phase, moves to the wine making area.
Precision Measurement
The analytical laboratory is equipped with
a METTLER TOLEDO DR40 to measure
combined density and refractive index.
Its ease of use and reliability is thanks to
the built-in Peltier cell thermostat measuring the minimum quantity of sample
required for analysis. In addition to distillates alcohol content and brix, the system
also determines several other parameters
specific to the wine sector, i.e. Babo degrees, potential alcohol from refractive
index and total dry extract from relative
density. The DR40 is a flexible and valuable instrument for quick winemaking
results.
Dr. Ferdinando Dell’Aquila, head of
laboratory, comments that, “We chose
your company as you represent the best
among the market offering. It was only
with the use of your instruments that we
have achieved such high quality and reliability standards. We also appreciate the
efficient after-sales support. We are more
than satisfied with METTLER TOLEDO.”
Vineyard evaluation with ‘precision farming’
Apart from pH and total acidity measurement, Berlucchi also uses the T70 Excellence Titrator to determine free combined
and total sulfur dioxide.

Refractometry
Simple and Efficient
Quality Control With RE50
To supply the rapidly growing consumer market in China, production lines are operating
all year round to meet demand. To cope with these increasing needs, Tianjin Tingjin
Food Co., Ltd in China. has selected METTLER TOLEDO Refractometers to measure BRIX
in their quality control lab.
BRIX Applications
Dingyi Beverage Co., Ltd., one of the subsidiaries of Dingxin Group, focuses on
beverages such as black and green tea.
BRIX is an important parameter in order
to distinguish between the different types
and quality of beverages. The control of
BRIX is significant in beverage production, and is mainly carried out via a measurement of the refractive index. The BRIX
function built into the METTLER TOLEDO
Refractometer allows users to read BRIX
values directly from the screen.
Simple and Efficient
There are 5 units of METTLER TOLEDO’s
RE50 digital Refractometer for measuring
12
METTLER TOLEDO
Dairy & Beverages News 9
BRIX in the raw materials and finished
products that pass through the quality
control lab of the group’s branch factory
in Tianjin. A built-in peltier thermostat
in the instrument offers a superior testing
result without the need of a circulating
water bath for temperature adjustment.
“The RE50 refractometer is so simple to
use,” says Ms. Zhao Fei, supervisor of IQC
Lab in Tingjin. “We have many samples to
test each day in order to control the quality of product. The operation of METTLER
TOLEDO Refractometer is foolproof. It is
very simple, tests samples quickly and is
easy to maintain.”
Dingyi Beverage Co., Ltd., in Tianjin, China
Ms. Zhao Fei, Supervisor IQC Lab,
performs tests with RE50
Unique CHECK Function
“Many other instruments can perform
quick tests with high repeatability.
The reason why we chose the METTLER
TOLEDO Refractometer, besides its speed,
is the unique CHECK function which helps
to reassure us of the result we get.” says
Ms. Zhao Fei. Good repeatability does
not necessarily mean accuracy of results.
The CHECK function adopts standard
samples for tests, and checks the current
state of the instrument by comparing the
measured result with standard value and
error limits. If the result is within the error
limits, it means the instrument is in normal working condition and can continue
testing samples.
Besides using RE50 to test BRIX, the
Dingxin Group also uses METTLER
TOLEDO’S DL50 Titrator to measure chloride in food and a pH meter to measure the
acidity of drinks. The Tianjin Tingjin Food
Co., Ltd. trusts the quality of METTLER
TOLEDO products, professional service
and support.
