Brewery Flow Meters for Beer and Wine

Brewery flow meters are specialized devices that are used to measure the flow rate of liquids, such as beer and wine, in a brewery or winery setting. These devices can be used to monitor the production process, ensure quality control, and optimize the use of resources. There are a variety of different types of brewery flow meters available. Including mass flow meters, vortex flow meters, turbine flow meters, electromagnetic flow meters and more. The new product launched by Sino-Inst, gear flow meters. Small flow can be measured. Applications in beer and Wine factories are particularly prominent.

Beer and Wine Flow Measurement

Beer and wine flow measurement is an important aspect of the production and distribution of these popular beverages. Accurate flow measurement ensures that the correct amount of product is being produced and delivered, which is essential for quality control and profitability.

Flow meters are used in the processes of crushing water metering, washing water metering, filtered wort metering, cold wort metering, sake metering, and filling wine metering.

However, there are several challenges that can make beer and wine flow measurement difficult.

Beer and Wine Flow Measurement

One difficulty is the wide range of viscosities and densities that can be present in these beverages. This can make it challenging to accurately measure flow, as different flow meters may be more or less accurate depending on the specific properties of the product.

Another challenge is the corrosive nature of these beverages. Many flow meters are not compatible with corrosive liquids, and using the wrong type of flow meter can lead to inaccurate readings or even damage to the meter.

Beer and Wine Flow Measurement has its special requirements. For example, it must avoid the reproduction of bacteria, facilitate frequent cleaning, and withstand the disinfection of corrosive alkaline water and hydrogen peroxide under high temperature conditions. The specific requirements are as follows:

  • The measuring circuit of the sensor is simple, there are no flow blocking parts and parts that are easy to retain the medium;
  • The materials of all parts in contact with the medium meet the requirements of food hygiene, such as FDA (US Food and Drug Administration), EHEDG (European Hygienic Equipment Design Group) requirements, etc.;
  • Parts in contact with the medium can withstand temperature collapse and corrosion during cleaning with steam, alkaline water and hydrogen peroxide;
  • When used in the filling process, it must have fast response performance and measurement accuracy;
  • It can adapt to low temperature (around 2°C) and humid working environment.

Overall, the measurement of flow in beer and wine production requires a careful consideration of the specific properties of the product and the use of flow meters that are suitable for these challenging environments.

Types of Brewery flow meters

In terms of flowmeter measurement technology, there are many types of flowmeters that can measure Beer and Wine. Commonly used are hygienic or non-contact. For example:
