Volume flow monitoring in pharmaceutical production

Reliable measurements in hazardous areas for monitoring explosion-protected extraction systems are possible even at low differential pressures – at low cost.

Monitoring and evaluation of volume flow in explosion-proof and non explosion-proof rooms for a German pharmaceutical manufacturer

A German manufacturer of pharmaceuticals has had a new production plant built. Together with the end customer, the responsible general contractor has decided to use SDF sensors for various production control applications.

For optimum production, monitoring of the individual volume flows (e.g. in stirring tanks) as well as monitoring of the entire exhaust air volume is required. Due to the substances that are processed in production, individual measurements in the Ex area are necessary for monitoring explosion-protected extraction systems.

The end customer has already been able to gain many years of positive experience with SDF sensors from S.K.I. at various locations and therefore wanted to retain the measuring principle. The joint design of the measuring points made it possible to precisely match the customer's needs with the requirements of the measurement technology.

SDF sensors enable reliable and accurate volume flow monitoring at low cost, even at low differential pressures. S.K.I. supported the general contractor from the planning phase to the final commissioning and handover to the end customer. Thus, unpleasant surprises could be avoided throughout the course of the project. The project manager expressed his gratitude that "excellent support and problem-free handling" had made "very precise volume flow monitoring and evaluation" possible.

Conclusion: Technically, the simple on-site setting without additional hardware and setting tools was particularly convincing. Due to the robust and flexible design, a very precise volume flow monitoring and evaluation was implemented for various applications in ex- and non-ex-protected rooms. End customers and planners particularly emphasized the excellent support and problem-free handling.
