Application

The ingredients for making ice cream are accurately weighed and fed into a mixing tank, where the "premix" is made. Afterwards, the premix is passed through the homogenizer at a pressure of about 140 bar and then pasteurized at 80 °C. The level in the premix vessel and the pressure in the pipeline leading to the homogenizer need to be continuously monitored to ensure continuous ice cream production.
