Manage the stock of your raw materials

Active ingredients in cosmetic manufacturing are high-cost and must be stored and monitored properly. Our technologies help you manage stock inventory and reduce waste. For example, our Liquiphant FTL50 level switch can protect you against overfill and leaks. Different technologies exist to measure stock, such as hydrostatic pressure sensors, radar level and capacitance measurement. Our technologies offer modern and reliable solutions with easy maintenance and real-time monitoring.

Getting the right mix

Mixing is the most demanding step in process operations and key in determining the quality of the final product. Adding and mixing raw materials accurately, as well as using energy and water efficiently can minimize waste and save money considerably. When handling liquids, you are challenged with oil-based and sticky products with various viscosities and densities. To help ensure the quality of your product in this demanding environment we offer:

  • Reliable and accurate flow measurement with Promass Q even with entrained gas

  • Accurate viscosity measurement with Promass I

  • Safe and smooth processes with Liquiphant and Liquipoint FTW33 for sticky products

  • Minimized energy losses with energy monitoring and management solutions

Accurate and continuous filling and dosing

Our flowmeters bring high accuracy to your batch and filling processes, making sure the exact amount of product is filled every time. Since they have no mechanical parts, high maintenance costs and process interruptions are in the past. In addition, digital communication protocols give you tight control of the whole filling process.

On-site calibration for efficiency and compliance

With productivity KPIs and time pressure being a daily reality, calibration is best done on site. This helps you reduce shut down periods for maintenance and calibration activities to an absolute minimum. At Endress+Hauser, calibration is one of our core competences. We offer a full portfolio of on-site calibration services to support you in your operations. For example, we can do on-site flow calibration using our mobile rigs that are fully traceable to our accredited calibration facilities.

Certified from head to toe

To identify issues that can affect the quality of your cosmetic products, compliance to standards such as ISO 17025 and the FDA Cosmetics GMP is crucial. According to this draft guidance, equipment should be calibrated regularly or checked according to an SOP with results documented, where appropriate. Our products, services and solutions come with all the right certification and documentation for GMP regulated facilities.
