Food & Beverage Processing

Process & Automation Equipment

There are dozens of applications for food process equipment. Vacuum tumblers can be monitored by our vacuum switches, mixers, blender, and separators can all utilize liquid level and temperature sensors, while conveyors, grinders, and lifts can all be monitored with pressure switches depending on their configuration. Additionally, kilns used to dry coffee or grains, needs a measure of temperature of heaters, flame temperature, and exhaust temperature with automatic safety shut off. Whitman is a great fit for these products.

Breweries, Wine, & Dairy

Breweries and vineyards need liquid level switches within their various storage tanks and drums while moving their product through the fermentation process. Industrial fermentation is the intentional use of fermentation by microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi as well as eukaryotic cells like CHO cells and insect cells, to make products useful to humans.Fermented products have applications as food as well as in general industry. 

Dairy producers similarly need to monitor their liquid level in the processing and bottling of milk. Additionally temperature sensors can be used during the pasteurization process.
