Customer stories food industry
Customer stories pharma industry
To give a piece of candy its own taste and texture, additives such as colourings and flavourings have to be added. Haas Mondomix is a machine builder who supplies equipment to this industry.
The British beer brewery, Ossett Brewery, uses Bronkhorst flow meters to supply oxygen into their beer brewing process in a controlled way.
The use of expensive and often volatile additives is critical for many industries, especially food and beverage where the precise dosing of flavourings is key to product quality and the reduction of waste.
In the beer brewing process, air is supplied to the fermentation step. To ensure the shelf life and the taste of the beer, the oxygen content has to be monitored continuously and accurately during the process.
Bronkhorst offers mass flow meters and controllers up to 10000 ln/min Air equivalent. In aeration applications up to 50% of the MASS-STREAM instruments are sold with multi-functional display which offers a wide range of additional options.
Bacteria are single-celled micro-organisms with their size in the micron range. Already for ages, bacteria have been used in the preparation of fermented foods and drinks, such as yoghurt and wine.
Ice cream is made by freezing and simultaneously blending air into a liquid mixture which contains fat, sugar, milk solids, an emulsifying agent, flavouring and sometimes colouring agents. For ice cream production the aeration process is crucial.
In this application a solution has been shared for dosing very small amounts of pharmaceutical agents in a liquid state, using Coriolis mass flow controllers and a high pressure pump.
In this application we share a solution regarding measuring low amounts of hydrogen peroxide for decontamination purposes in isolators for aseptic processes.
Bronkhorst flow controllers are used for CO2 measurement and control for algue during cultivation at the Thomas More University of Applied Sciences.
The Swiss based company SKAN AG, a global player in the field of cleanrooms and isolators for the pharmaceutical industry, uses Bronkhorst mass flow meters to calibrate the air flow of their microbial air samplers.
What do yoghurt and beer have in common? Utilising metabolism of tiny micro-organisms is an essential part of processes such as brewing and fermentation.
Continuous manufacturing is a pioneering technology that has the potential to transform how medicines are made in the future.
Inkjet print heads and labs-on-a-chip were the first exponents of microfluidics: involving flow of liquids inside channels with a diameter of micron-size. Microfluidic devices are made by lithographic and other processes that find their origin in integrated circuit manufacturing.
