Surface acoustic wave technology provides hygienic flow measurement for pharmaceutical manufacturer
When active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) developer and manufacturer, Veranova, wanted to build a new manufacturing suite, it needed accurate control over volumetric flow to optimise process efficiency. As the suite would be installed within an existing area of the facility, the flowmeter had to contribute to a compact overall footprint. Handling various media, including solvents and acids as well as low conductivity liquids, the device also had to enable a clean in place (CIP) process. Veranova turned to Bürkert and its surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology to fulfil its requirements.
