AMS Instrumentation & Calibration is your number one source for process instrumentation solutions for the food and beverage industry.

The Food & Beverage industry is required to adhere to strict guidelines and regulations to preserve food quality and prevent
contamination that places the health and safety of consumers at risk. Because food safety compliance is so critical, even the smallest of issues can impact food safety and result in unexpected downtime. Instrumentation for food processing equipment is used to prevent these issues by monitoring processes and providing quality management for the entire production process from product preparation to labeling and packaging.

Instrumentation for the Food & Beverage Industry

Product repeatability is important for ensuring consistent taste and quality beer, soft drinks, and other beverages. In soft drink production, food and beverage instrumentation is useful for monitoring and measuring the concentration and addition of flavorings and other additives. For breweries, sensors and other instrumentation are used to monitor consistency during the brewing process. This can include measuring pH levels, monitoring mash temperatures and monitoring the fermentation and filtration processes. Beverage processing equipment instrumentation is also used with automated solutions for bottling, labeling, packaging and shipping beverages.

  • Flow Meters: Measure the flow rate of liquids and are useful for dispensing
    applications. These instruments can be tailored to your exact needs
    whether you need to measure gallons per minute or liters per second to
    ensure repeatability and product consistency.
  • Level Instrumentation: Continuous and point level instrumentation includes a range of floats, probes, and switches for measuring and monitoring fluid levels in holding tanks and other vessels.
  • Temperature Instrumentation: Maintaining proper temperatures is critical in the production and storage of food and beverages. We provide a range of temperature instrumentation including sensors and heaters for monitoring cooking processes and ensuring ingredients and finished products are produced and stored at the appropriate temperatures.
  • Pressure Instrumentation: Various types of gauges, transmitters, and sensors are used to measure and display density, flow rates, fluid levels and more. These instruments help improve safety and quality control by monitoring critical functions and sending a signal where pressures reach low or high levels.

Food & Beverage Instrumentation Applications

Examples of using instrumentation for food and beverage handling applications include:

  • Monitoring the cooking processes of meat, pastry, and other prepared foods
  • Ensuring consistency for automated meat, cheese or bread cutting equipment
  • Measuring moisture content in baked goods and other prepared foods
  • Analysing the liquid density of alcohol, dairy, and other beverages
  • Monitoring temperature for the pasteurisation of milk and other dairy products
  • Processing solid and fluid waste for compliance with environmental sustainability standard.
