OPTIFLUX 6000 electromagnetic flow meter

Hygienic electromagnetic flow meter – top 5 applications

Electromagnetic flowmeters, due to their reliable flow measurement and lack of moving parts, are used in a variety of industries. These hygienic design devices are often used in industries such as food and pharmaceuticals, among others, where flow measurement is crucial for precise dosing and mixing. In the article below, we present 5 of the most popular applications for our new OPTIFLUX 600 electromagnetic flow meter in hygienic design. Check it out!

Electromagnetic flowmeter – operating principle

The electromagnetic flowmeter is a device that measure flow velocity of liquids. Its operation is based on the principle of interaction of the medium flowing through it with a magnetic field. Measurement is virtually independent of temperature, pressure, density or viscosity of the fluid. The physical principle at work is electromagnetic induction.

Hygienic electromagnetic flow meters – the highest standards of sterility

The OPTIFLUX 6000 electromagnetic flow sensor has been specifically designed for cleanliness and sterility in accordance with the most stringent requirements in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

It has no moving parts and its inner wall is completely smooth - there are no gaps or interruptions. As a result, it is able to meet the stringent requirements of the FDA for food contact materials, among others. For all wetted materials and is certified in accordance with EHEDG and 3A.

The flowmeter is also available in an acid-resistant steel housing for applications where, for example, regular cleaning procedures with aggressive cleaning agents may damage the standard polyurethane coating.

Flow meter for beer production

Magnetic flow meter in beer production are used, among other things, in the process of cooling the wort (the aqueous solution extracted from the brewing malt). After clarification in the centrifuge, the wort must be cooled as quickly as possible to fermentation temperature.

The speed of the cooling water flow depends on the temperature of the beer - the higher it is, the faster the water. flows through the cooler. The ideal device dedicated to flow measurement in this case is the OPTFLUX 600 electromagnetic flow meter.

Furthermore, the measurement data can be continuously archived using the JUMO Logoscreen 601 recorder.

In beer production, the electromagnetic flow meter is used to measure the flow of cooling water

Flow meter for milk

The quantity of milk accepted by a dairy plant can be controlled by a flow system based on an electromagnetic flow meter. This device ensures a very high measuring accuracy of approx. 0.2 %, which makes it possible to comply with legal regulations for liquids other than water.

By purchasing the flow meter from JUMO, you can complete the entire measurement set from one supplier - we also offer sensors for measuring, among other things, conductivity, pH and redox. Precise monitoring of these values will make it possible to rule out, among other things, the ingestion of stale product or the influence of atmospheric conditions.

Electromagnetic flow meters are used in milk receiving systems in dairy plants

Flow meter for CIP liquids

CIP (Cleaning In Place) cleaning processes involve the automatic cleaning of, among other things, process equipment and pipelines from residues using chemicals, including acids and caustic solutions.

Measuring the flow of liquids in these installations is important in order to dose the correct amount of chemicals. By accurately measuring the flow in the return stream, CIP process times can be optimised and controlled.

The OPTIFLUX 6000 electromagnetic flow meter guarantees that the cleaning process can be precisely controlled.

The use of a flow meter in CIP plants ensures accurate dosing of chemicals and optimisation of the process

Flow meter for the pharmaceutical industry

In the pharmaceutical industry, where a sterile environment is of paramount importance, JUMO magnetic flow meters in hygienic design with PFA lining are ideally suited.

They will be suitable for all stages of pharmaceutical production including drug production, raw material handling, production of active pharmaceutical ingredients by chemical synthesis or in extraction, fermentation and purification.

Other applications for the OPTIFLUX 6000 electromagnetic flow meters

  • other dairy products

  • beverages, including soft drinks, wines and fruit juices

  • beverages containing solids (e.g. yoghurt containing cereals)

  • caustic carbonated beverages, acids, proteins

  • large production plants with diameters up to DN150

We also offer flow meters for applications other than hygiene, e.g. the OPTIFLUX 2000 electromagnetic flow meter for waste water or flow meters used in the mining industry. Check it out!
