FoodSense

 

Our first monitoring product FoodSense dramatically increases plant and manufacturing efficiency within the food & drinks industry.

The system is comprised of three components:

  1. Self-contained, zero-footprint, low energy sensor and electronic circuitry integrated in to a single compact, process-certified unit. There is no need for additional test or display equipment.

  2. Advanced process monitoring software for automatic food product identification. There is no need for a qualified instrumentation engineer.

  3. A sensor-to-manufacturing facility interface for process control and automation, allowing plug-and-play connection to the rest of your plant.

 

FoodSense applications

 

Deployment of FoodSense units for real-time monitoring within these five plant areas provides the greatest efficiencies:

  1. Product Composition

  2. Clean In Place (CIP)

  3. Waste Reduction

  4. Control of Effluents

  5. Plant Process Monitoring

 

Advantages

 

  • Designed specifically for the Food & Drink industry.

  • Installed inline to allow manufacturers to monitor their product quality in real-time, for the first time.

  • Measures the bulk properties of materials passing, not just the surface, unlike Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) and FT-NIR (Near Infrared) technologies offered by competitors.

  • Unaffected by the presence of vapours, which is a serious reliability concern for FTIR and NIR technologies.

  • A non-hazardous and safe system

  • Completely non-intrusive sensor technology that does not interfere with or alter the flow of products being measured in any way.

  • Can be retrofitted quickly and easily to existing process lines.

  • European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group compliant and fully compatible with Clean In Place (CIP).

  • Completely tailored to individual customer and plant requirements, and calibrated by our support team to the unique signatures of your product via embedded intelligence.

  • Our subscription model offers local service support, alleviating the need for skilled instrumentation engineers to be employed by
    the company.

  • The ROI on the system is in terms of months, depending on the percentage of savings achieved.

 

Environmental benefit

By reducing the consumption of power and water through improving efficiency, FoodSense can substantially reduce a company’s carbon footprint. Not only does intelligent automation represent energy savings, it presents an opportunity for net renewable generation contributions.
