AW-Lake Mass Flow Meters and Controllers Optimize Marshmallow Candy Production Process
Coriolis Mass Flow Meters and Thermal Mass Flow Controllers from AW-Lake monitor both the air flow into the marshmallow mixture and marshmallow mass flow to ensure consistent quality to the final end product.

Replacing electronic meters, Vogtlin High-Precision Thermal Mass Flow Controllers provide greater precision and faster response in controlling the amount of air for marshmallow production cycles. While the application requires at least 1% accuracy, the Vogtlin MEMS sensor technology offers 0.5% accuracy with faster response time. While flow rate of the clean air depends on the capacity of the production, the maximum value is around 2.5-3.0 ft3/min (70 NLPM).

As the pump and globe valve on the production line is controlled by a programmable logic controller using 4-20mA output from the Mass Flow Meters, operators can easily change flow rate depending on production and reference the amount in each production cycle to determine the total amount of clean air. In addition to providing greater response than previous instrumentation with greater production accuracy, the Coriolis Mass Flow Meters reduce production and maintenance costs.
