Flavor and Fragrance Company Upgrades To Automated System Utilizing Clustered Angle Valves

Problem:

A flavor and fragrance (F &F) company was looking to upgrade its plant from manual pours to an automated system. They utilized almost 100 different liquids and minimizing the footprint of all these automated valves was a concern. The customer wanted a fast-cycling valve to ensure they hit their setpoints of each product pour using a scale.

Since this F&F company creates scents and tastes for use in a broad range of consumer products, including fine fragrances, cosmetics, personal care, and beverages automating the system would be a time as well as cost savings.

Solution:

Angle Valve for Flavor and Fragrance

Assured Automation recommended their angle valve which offers life cycles in the millions, a fraction of a second cycle speed, and features an actuator head that rotates 360 degrees.

Working with a local partner that offers their proprietary Batchmetrics software for managing the flavor and fragrance inventory and creating recipes for the pours, Assured Automation was able to provide the compact valving to cluster 100 valves in a tight space. The speed of the angle body valve also ensured accurate pours of each of their ingredients.

Result:

These valve clusters have now been sold to numerous flavor and fragrance facilities and have provided very accurate pours using the high cycle angle body valves. The angle body valve is offered with 316SS body, NPT or triclamp end connections, sizes from ½” to 2”.
