CORI-FILL® technology from Bronkhorst features integrated batch counters and the facility to control directly a closely coupled shut-off valve, proportional control valve or suitable pump, for a wide range of dosing and filling applications at flow rates between 200 mg/hr and 600 kg/hr. CORI-FILL has a compact footprint and no complex programming of additional hardware is required
According to Bronkhorst, 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. Bronkhorst says that it is 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, claims the company.
In contrast with gravimetric processes using weighing scales, where compounds are dosed one by one, CORI-FILL systems can also 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.
