Centec are a leading manufacturer of fluid product monitoring sensors and liquids processing systems. Centec Rhotec TR series sensors continuously measure the density of liquids with extreme accuracy, while Sonatec TR uses ultrasound to analyse liquids. When combined with Centec process control technology, the data from these instruments is used to accurately control the flow rates and blending ratios of liquid ingredients, even under variable operating conditions.
Centec automation engineers and software programmers are highly skilled at designing systems for liquids blending. The advent of these technologies enables continuous yet flexible production of numerous products to be achieved with one system, greatly reducing the need for traditional mixing vessels and space consuming finished product storage.
Concentrate and syrup preparation for a wide range of products from soft drinks to shampoos and detergents.
Concentrate dilution for beer, cider and soft drinks, and even acids, alkalis and household chemicals.
Multiple fluids are proportioned and blending together by a Centec MultiMixer.
Minor additions dosing adds small quantities of ingredients into a main line, such as a differentiating flavour or colour.
Dosing & Pitching of live yeast cells into a wort main prior to fermentation in a brewery. Process control equipment can include the remarkable Aber Live Cell Yeast Monitor
Emulsions are prepared, accurately blending oils with water and other liquids.
For drinks production, high gravity / syrup dilution and carbonation are carried out sequentially on one skid.
Capacities: Typically 1 to 150 m3/h depending on the application
All this is achieved with Centec’s combined expertise in Sensor Technology and Process Engineering
