High functionality and compact design

Ehrmann AG places its trust in the Picomag flowmeter from Endress+Hauser

Tight spaces are not uncommon in the food industry. That means manufacturers want measurement instruments that not only perform the required task in line with the application, but devices with a compact design, all without having to sacrifice functionality. The Picomag flowmeter from Endress+Hauser meets this challenge – no strings attached. That’s why it was the recipient of the 2018 Red Dot Award.

Customer challenge

Modern dairy operations take great pains to prevent every bit of product loss and leakage. For this reason, numerous pump processes utilize slide ring seals that ensure optimal pressure together with seal water and thus help maintain the functionality of the seal. This not only keeps milk from leaking into the waste water, but prevents seal water from getting into the milk. The tight spaces in these pump installations often make it difficult to ensure reliable flow measurements.

Our solution

The compact design of the Picomag makes installation easy, without sacrificing functionality, particularly when space is at a premium. The Picomag safely and precisely monitors the amount of seal water to ensure reliable functionality of the pump. Apart from flow and totalizer, Picomag also shows the temperature on an easy-to-read monitor. The horizontal position of the display is automatically aligned with the installation to ensure optimal reading of the parameters.
