Chandigarh 05th September:- Distilleries and Bottlers Limited (CDBL) has appointed Endress+Hauser India to upgrade its distillery in Banur (Punjab) who are the manufacturers of branded alcoholic beverages in Asia. This is the only distillery plant in the region which has opted for process automation upgradation following global Best Practices for accurate spirit flow and density measurement. The method adopted is to install highly accurate mass flow meter based on 'Coriolis' principles. The plant has chosen Pro mass 84 series of flow meters by Swiss major Endress+Hauser India, which simultaneously measures accurate mass, temperature and density of spirits handled at the distillery.
The upgradation took place post receiving technical feedback from the engineers of CDBL who then decided to initiated installation of new age technology platform of spirit handling methodology for the region. Newly installed technology with accurate flow meter based now leads to high degree of accuracy to the online spirit transfer process on the real-time basis. The plant is now equipped with SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and uses the most modern and advanced computerized technology Management Information System (Day To Day Reporting) and operational controlling system that has earned an incredible world-wide name and popularity over the years. The manual intervention of dip measurement is being eliminated permanently to avoid errors and overfilling of the tanker has stopped thus reducing the losses.
The new installations promises to break “silos” between old and new technology, understand the need of the hour and focus on - reducing inaccuracy in measurements at the distillery. The market is mature enough and thereby demands highest possible quality delivery at the lowest price.
