Netherlands-based Bronkhorst Cori-Tech B.V., has introduced CORI-FILL™, a compact solution for fluid dosage, based around the extremely accurate mass measurement of its (mini) CORI-FLOW series of Coriolis-type instruments.
Developed using innovative hardware and software, CORI-FILL technology features integrated batch counters and the facility to directly control a close-coupled shut-off valve for brief batch sequences down to <0.3secs, a proportional valve for longer sequences, or a liquid pump for dosing without the need for pressurised vessels.
CORI-FILL offers all this functionality and more, with plug-and-play simplicity that enables an immediate start to dosage duties after connecting power and fluid accessories, in one compact footprint and from one supplier, with single point responsibility.
In contrast with gravimetric processes using weighing scales, where compounds are dosed one by one, CORI-FILL systems can add all ingredients simultaneously, shortening batch and agitation cycles, as well as improving quality. The amount to be dosed can be easily preset by programming the batch counters via a fieldbus connection, with all the standard digital protocols available.
CORI-FILL is designed for batching, blending, dosing, filling, sterilisation and similar duties in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, contact lens and life sciences industries, as well as being of interest to OEM machine builders.
Suitable for all types of liquid additives, fragrances, flavours and colourants, including those with entrained air or solids, the Coriolis direct mass measurement method eliminates volumetric variation caused by changing temperatures and densities of ingredients, leading to accurate, repeatable quantities batch after batch.
