Food Processing Factory

3 Jul 2017

Food processing factory based in the south of the UK producing Coleslaw, packaged salads and pastas for the likes of McDonalds, Tesco, Morrisons & Lidl. Producing over 130,000 pots of Coleslaw a day.

2.2 metres high, 5mm stainless steel wall, filled with mayonnaise to be used for the Coleslaw. The current monitoring method consists of employing ladders to peer into the cylinder and check usage and remaining contents. The issue with this method lies in potential contamination and is a health and safety risk to the operator.

A site visit was conducted by Coltraco Engineers and after a short trial we could gauge that the existing liquid level technology employed on the Portalevel Max would be efficient in quickly and accurately gauging the liquid level of mayonnaise within the vessel.

The implementation of the Portalevel Max allows the plant to run more efficiently and reduces risks by providing staff with a means of accurately and non-invasively monitoring the contents within the mayonnaise tank negating the need for physical inspection using ladders, posing a health and safety risk to the operator.

The trial and implementation suggested that we could develop a fixed monitoring system for this vessel and others like it, in order to non-invasively, continuously monitor the contents of the condiments within the tank.
