Functional Description

The Haffmans Keg Monitor, type KEG 2.0, consists of a specially prepared keg with a handy or charger and a dock station. The Keg Monitor travels among the other kegs through the keg washer and monitors its performance. It measures the temperature of the incoming product, the temperature of the product leaving the keg, the temperature of the keg wall, and the pressure inside the keg. In addition, the data logger continuously registers the position of the keg in the cleaning process.

After the process is finished, the handy is put onto the keg and the data is wirelessly transferred. Subsequently, the handy is placed on the dock and the stored data can be directly printed or uploaded to a PC. The software processes the measured values and further checks whether the steam was superheated, which reduces the sterilization effect. All results are displayed in a tabular and graphical format, which can be printed and/or stored.

Haffmans Bottle Washing Monitor

The Haffmans Bottle Washing Monitor, type BTM monitors the bottle washing process and measures both temperature and conductivity as a function of time.

BENEFITS

  • Perfect process control
  • Cost saving
    – information about condition of bottle cleaner
    – optimization of energy and caustic consumption

Evaluating the cleaning of returnable bottles in breweries and soft drink production plants is an important aspect of quality assurance before filling. There is a significant risk that bottles might be contaminated by foreign substances. Bottle washing is therefore an essential process in the packaging line.

The BTM travels among the other bottles through the bottle washer and evaluates its performance. After the process is finished, an LED on the bottom of the monitor indicates whether the cleaning process met the requirements programmed in the BTM. The measured data can be transferred to a PC via a docking station. The software processes the measured value and displays it in tabular and graphical formats, which can be printed and/or stored.
