Batch Processing Systems
Batch systems typically comprise a make-up tank and one or more use tanks. The ingredients of your recipe are measured into the make-up tank where they are mixed together and may be heated or cooled. When this mixture is complete the product is transferred to a use tank.
The use tank is designed to maintain the product’s characteristics while the material is being withdrawn to be used in the process. The make-up and use tanks can be mounted on load cells for accurate weighing of the make-up ingredients and for inventory control of the mixed solution.
The material is withdrawn from the use tank using one or more pumps, and the discharge rate can be measured by using the load cells or by pumping through flow meters. Depending on the process, additional items such as external heat exchangers, condensers or evaporators can also be included with these systems.
The instrumentation required to ensure that the product is within the required specifications is also included in the package. The control system is designed to monitor all aspects of the process.
All of the required process and utility piping is mounted on a stainless steel framework. The electrical devices are wired and tested prior to shipment. Control panels can be mounted on the skid or remote mounted.
Dispensing systems are designed to provide an accurate method of delivering single or multiple solutions to the process. These systems typically include holding tanks specifically designed to maintain the properties of the solution over time to ensure that the solution delivered is consistent. The solutions are then pumped, using a variety of different metering pumps, to deliver them where required in the process.
These systems may include flow meters or other instruments to ensure that the delivery rates are accurate and constant. These types of systems are typically used to provide colors, flavors or oils to the downstream process. These types of systems can be designed for continuous or batch delivery. These systems may include heat exchangers or other equipment.
