Food and Pharmacy

The Food and Pharmaceutical industries rely on hygienic equipment with special connections, ability to clean in-line and suitable materials that neither affect the products nor are sensitive to the cleaning media.

The typo of instruments offered by Trigas are not the typical ones used in this type of measuring processes. However, there are some special applications for which we offer interesting customized solutions.

Our miniature turbine DM2-8 and the DML-series is the ideal solution for precise dosing in the smallest quantities of odorants, flavors and expensive ingredients.

Larger types are available for the highly accurate measurement of oils and demineralized water.

Packaged meat and other food products stay fresh longer time if their packaging is saturated with nitrogen or other preservative gases. Alicat flow regulators with pressure control loops make it easy to get the right amount of inert gas in these packages.

Our two-valve pressure regulator is specially designed to help breweries maintaining the right fermentation pressure. They are also used for example to control burners for roasting coffee beans. Ask us for your special application!

Bioreactor processes often create environments that are too humid or wet for conventional mass flow controllers. Alicat MFCs are resistant to humid gases and have pre-programmed numerous bioreactor gas mixtures for direct adaptation during the reaction process.

You just choose them from the menu. A ready-made solution, put into operation in a few minutes!

Our flow calibration specialist sister company TrigasFI is a long-standing partner of many large and small companies in the food and pharmaceutical industry.  We have been calibrating their flow sensors from 0.00005 to 5000 l/min for liquids and 0.001 to 20 000 Nl/min for gases at TrigasFI, on request also with DAkkS ISO 17025 certificate.

Our new DAkkS accreditation expansion which now includes on-site calibrations even enables us to perform these services in-house at our customers’ locations.

We recommend the following products:

High-precision DM series turbine flowmeter with hygienic connection, made of stainless steel;

Recommended for measuring demineralized water, liquid flavors and additives from 42 ml / min to 1300 l / min

With our standard pickoffs you already get the benefit of a no-drag, stable RF carrier based sensor, working without magnetic fields which retard the turbine rotor motion or attracting metal particles which affect the dimension of the flow path and the velocity profile of the flowing liquid. High temperature versions, versions with integrated temperature sensor or with additional signal amplifiers optionally available; recommended for test benches

TriLIN linearization electronics store the special UVC data that combine several calibrations of the turbine flowmeter for different viscosities with optional temperature compensation which makes accurate flow measurement possible over the defined temperature and viscosity range.

Configurable as 2-channel version, for differential flow measurements (A-B consumption), bi-directional measurements, etc.;

The Alicat M Series for accurate gas measurement, whether stationary or battery-powered, not only provides a 5ms response time and accuracy of up to 0.4% of reading + 0,2% of full scale, but also comes with a rugged design that makes is insensitive to vibrations and humidity.

You can choose from up to 130 stored gas calibration curves and also create your own gas mixtures, which are then measured with the same accuracy as the original calibration gas. A single device for a wide variety of applications!

Alicat MC Series, the fastest gas controller, provides with its special valves control times of 50ms and therefore a brilliant stable control. User selectable units and a large display ensure easy operation and convenient reading of all parameters.

The connection to PLC or PC via bus interfaces enables easy integration into existing systems. (also available as MCW in Whisper version)

PCD-15PSIG-D_1080

Alicat PCD series, the gas pressure controller with the integrated quick valves (available with up-, downstream or 2 valves) and the high repeatability of 0,08% of full scale ensures stable process control and is available for different pressure ranges. Selectable units of measure and a large display ensure easy operation and convenient reading of all parameters.

The connection to PLC or PC via bus interfaces enables easy integration into existing systems.
