New touchscreen control for fully automated monitoring and regulation of odorizing systems
In nearly all countries, continuous, proportional odorizing and monitoring is mandated by law for potentially hazardous or highly explosive gases with no natural odor. Lewa GmbH has developed a new Odor Control Unit (OCU) in order to fulfill this need efficiently and without requiring a major commitment of time and personnel. The system continuously compares the target and actual concentration of the odorant, so that regular inspections of the odorizing systems can be discontinued within four weeks, or...

Spreadable butter is one of the primary products of the Danish/Swedish dairy company Arla. At their facility in Gotene Arla is producing the brand Bregott for the domestic market in Sweden. To be able to reproduce the specific characteristics of the different types exactly, ingredients must be precisely metered. For ten years, the production facility in Gotene has used pumps from Lewa GmbH for this purpose, which are not only designed for high discharge pressures but also have an accuracy of ± 1 percent, meeting the manufacturer's strict requirements. From the different variants of the...
