Using Magnetic Flow Meters to Monitor Food Slurry and Dosing Water

Siemens MAG 5100 W magnetic flow meters are being used by a waste food de-packers manufacturer to monitor food slurry as well as dosing water. Domestically generated food waste and the food waste obtained from food manufacturers or retailers include a proportion of packaging waste such as card, paper, glass, and cans.

If food slurry is used as a feedstock for anaerobic digestion plant, the presence of packaging materials is an issue; de-packaging equipment can be employed for unwrapping, separation, and particle size reduction of food waste before anaerobic digestion.

A process technology company and manufacturer of waste food de-packers has been using Siemens MAG 5100 W magnetic flow meters to track food slurry as well as water (for example, grease trap biowaste) inputs to the de-packaging equipment. Water dosing is used to decrease dry solid content to a suitable level for anaerobic digestion. The Sitrans MAG 5100 W is a magmeter with a patented composite elastomer lining that makes it ideal for all water flow applications, including wastewater, sludge, sewage, and clean water.
