Application of flowmeter in beer brewing process
What is the flow meter?
A flow meter is a equipment used to measure the volume or mass of a gas or liquid.
Flow meters are referred to by many names, such as flow gauge, flow indicator, liquid meter, flow rate sensor, etc. Depending on the particular industry .
However, they all measure flow. Open channels, like rivers or streams, may be measured with flow meters.
Or more frequently, the most utility from a flow meter and the greatest variety of flow meters focus on measuring gasses and liquids in a pipe .
Improving the precision, accuracy, and resolution of fluid measurement are the greatest benefits of the best flow meters.
Where is the flowmeter used?
The first position is in front of the brewhouse systems. Preparing the mashing water requires accurate flow calculation.
At the same time, this flowmeter is also used for the lauter tank washing water.
The second position is located after the heat exchanger. After the wort cooling is completed, we will use the second flowmeter to measure how much wort we actually get.
At present, we provide three types of flowmeters, one is made in China, which is larger. And the other is Germany E + H and IFM flowmeter. The following are reference pictures.
