Dairy & Beverages Industrial Weighing & Measuring News 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. GMP Special design balances Nothing special for METTLER TOLEDO: Our weighing specialists also produce exceptional weighing system designs Publisher Mettler-Toledo AG Industrial Heuwinkelstrasse CH-8606 Nänikon Switzerland Production MarCom Industrial CH-8606 Nänikon Switzerland Subject to technical changes © 01/2010 Mettler-Toledo AG Printed in Switzerland 2 METTLER TOLEDO Dairy & Beverages News 9 DöhlerGroup Leading in Integrated Beverage & Dairy Solutions 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. www.mt.com/filling The Döhler Group, based in Darmstadt, is one of the leading international producers of fruit juice concentrate, fruit preparations, blends, basic materials, ingredient systems, emulsions, flavourings and colours for the drinks, dairy and ice cream industries. In production facilities and marketing organizations throughout Europe, Asia and America, its 2000 employees utilize their knowledge for the benefit of customers. As a know-how partner with expertise in fruit and technology, Döhler provides an integrated approach, which extends well beyond its comprehensive product portfolio.

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. Safeline AdvanCheK inspects ice cream packages for foreign bodies METTLER TOLEDO provides the entire scope of modern product inspection solutions all under one roof. This makes METTLER TOLEDO the leading global supplier of checkweighers, metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems. www.mt.com/pi www.mt.com/pi-dairy METTLER TOLEDO Dairy & Beverages News 9 5 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. 6 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. www.mt.com/metaldetection www.mt.com/pi-dairy METTLER TOLEDO Dairy & Beverages News 9 7 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 8 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. www.mt.com/cleaning www.mt.com/pro-pH EasyClean 400 automated cleaning and calibration system METTLER TOLEDO Dairy & Beverages News 9 9 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. www.mt.com/one-click-titration www.mt.com/dr METTLER TOLEDO Dairy & Beverages News 9 11 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.
