Emerson will present new solutions that drive operational excellence in packaging and food and beverage processing applications at Pack Expo International 2022 on October 23-26 in Chicago. Today’s packaging lines must accommodate an unprecedented level of product variety and packaging complexities, but there are powerful automation capabilities that can significantly improve productivity, efficiency, and sustainability for consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies. Emerson’s tools, technology, and expertise can help packaging and production lines reduce waste, empower decision-making, improve facility safety, sharpen the accuracy of critical measurements, increase machine availability, and much more.
Emerson will also present food and beverage industry breakthroughs and leading-edge best practices during the Innovation Stage session Reduce Waste & Increase Efficiency in Clean-in-Place (CIP) Process. During the workshop, Emerson’s manager of business development, Vince Massey, will share seven common CIP efficiency challenges and the most effective ways to solve them using proper measurement instrumentation.
Pack Expo attendees can join the 12 p.m. session on October 25 at Innovation Stage 1 (N4560) and find the latest Emerson product offerings at the Emerson booth, North Building – N-4736. Emerson experts will be readily available on-site for interviews and booth walk-throughs.
Aventics Series SPRA electric rod-style linear actuator
From conveying to assembly, many applications in today’s packaging lines can benefit from the energy efficiency and power of electrical linear motion. Emerson’s Aventics Series SPRA electric rod-style linear actuator is a cost-effective, high-performance solution, offering enhanced load capacity, accuracy, and reliability CPGs need to maximize productivity. In addition to providing outstanding precision and repeatability, the Series SPRA is also extremely versatile and flexible, with a choice of three different screw technologies that allow implementation within a wide range of applications and can meet exacting application requirements. Compliance with the ISO-15552 standard, online selection tools, and a wide range of mounting accessories ensures the appropriate implementation.
Aventics Series AF2 airflow sensor high flow model
Smart pneumatic sensors are highly effective sustainability tools that can help CPGs reliably save energy, reduce costs, and meet ambitious targets. Emerson’s Aventics Series AF2 airflow sensor has successfully improved the energy efficiency of packaging equipment in a variety of applications, including food and beverage, personal care, and even labels. Emerson now offers a high-flow model of this advanced sensor that propels compressed air monitoring beyond individual machines to benefit larger air lines and systems. This expanded capability allows personnel to easily optimize energy consumption across an entire packaging facility and improve overall plant sustainability. Much more than a flow meter, the new Series AF2 high flow model is available as a stand-alone device to monitor air consumption in pneumatic pipe systems and allow packaging personnel to access actionable insights into machine data — such as flow, pressure, and temperature. This configuration detects leaks in real time, making it possible for operators to quickly address them. The Series AF2 high flow version is available in two piped options, 1.5 in. and 2in. diameters, and the flow ranges can be configured to the Aventics AS family of air preparation units.
