Fruit and Flowmeters - Mexican mangoes make for an interesting application

It is really good when a customer comes to us with an unusual application, and where we are able to take measurements where we not necessarily expecting to succeed.

Sigma Sensor our partner in Mexico recently created one such scenario for an application they had at a food and beverage company. They were looking to use our transit-time KATflow 150 for the measurement of mango pulp which with it's high fibrous content we would expect to be very difficult to measure.

Before we got involved the customer was using the frequency of a volumetric pump as a method for inferring the flow rate in the 68 mm ID stainless steel pipe. This method was not proving reliable and they were looking for an alternative, more accurate solution.

Following the installation they achieved excellent results measuring 5579 l/h which was within 0.5% of the 5600 l/h expected by the customer. We do not support making unrealistic accuracy claims for a clamp-on meter but it does show what can sometimes happen with a good installation and a bit of good fortune. We see the fact that we were able to measure the flow of mango pulp at all as a reassuring testament to robustness of our measurement and the performance of the flowmeters we produce.

Katronic are moving into new markets. Kirsty Hammond recently returned from a trip to Ecuador where she provided training and conducted joint customer visits. The trip was a great success and we are already expecting our first orders. https://twitter.com/Katronic_UK/status/817305967272415232/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw
