Application

In the production of spices, the spices are first mixed with water and oil to form a slurry. This is fed into an evaporator, where water is removed to turn it into a kind of syrup. The thickened spice syrup must have exactly the right density - so that it can be spread thinly onto metal sheets for oven drying, ready to be ground into powder. To ensure the optimal density of the spice syrup, it requires a continuous measurement during manufacture. The pressure in the feed pipe leading to the evaporator also requires careful monitoring to ensure a smooth-running production process.
