Louis Pasteur is Not the Only Name in Dairy Sanitation

acciaioWith the modern desire for transparency driving the country, there has been much discussion about the sanitation practices of the food and beverage industry.

A report from PRNewsire recently outlined an analysis of the current and future trends occurring in the North American pump market, focusing on the dairy industry.

The research is based on end users and product types, including drinking milk products, yogurts, sour cream, cheese, ice cream, and others. The products are segmented by centrifugal drum pumps and positive displacement pumps.

The analysis outlines the competitive structure of the industry according to market drivers, restraints, challenges, and the gradual impact to show the trend of growth.

The results from 2015 showed that the demand for sanitary drum pumps with stricter implementation of food safety regulations is projected to drive substantial growth of the pump market in the dairy industry.

In order to improve the quality of the pumps used for sanitation in the food and beverage industry, Emerson Process Management introduced the new Rosemount 3051HT Hygienic Pressure Transmitter, according to Automation World.

Because regular clean-in-place/sterilize-in-place (CIP/SIP) regimens make measurement devices become unstable, batch quality can in turn begin to deteriorate. These pressure transmitters which measure hygienic processes involve regular cycles of high temperature CIP/SIP, which are then followed up by cool-down periods where they will return to their original calibration.

Many transmitters end up unable to return to their calibrated settings within an appropriate time interval. When calibration becomes very unstable, inaccurate measurements can lead to rejected batches and extra processing time, both of which become extra production costs.

“The Rosemount 3051HT is designed to help customers in sanitary production areas achieve higher yields that exceed production targets,” said Scott Nelson, vice president and general manager of Rosemount pressure products at Emerson Process Management.

Rather than putting in the money and effort to re-calibrate these transmitters after every use, the Rosemount 3051HT will automatically and swiftly stabilize to its original calibration settings swiftly after cleaning cycles.
