On-Site Generation (OSG) Technology for Beverage Industry Sanitation

In beverage bottling and canning plants, Clean-in-Place (CIP) is used to clean various product lines such as syrup and water lines for a variety of reasons including flavor carryover prevention and microbial control.

CIP also eliminates organic residues like precipitated proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and other contaminants that harbor bacteria and may lead to microbial induced corrosion (MIC).

Thermal NDT methods involve the measurement or mapping of surface temperatures as heat flows to, from and/or through an object. The simplest thermal measurements involve making point measurements with a thermocouple. This type of measurement might be useful in locating hot spots, such as a bearing that is wearing out and starting to heat up due to an increase in friction.

In its more advanced form, the use of thermal imaging systems allow thermal information to be very rapidly collected over a wide area and in a non-contact mode. Thermal imaging systems are instruments that create pictures of heat flow rather than of light. Thermal imaging is a fast, cost effective way to perform detailed thermal analysis. The image above is a heat map of the space shuttle as it lands.

Thermal measurement methods have a wide range of uses. They are used by the police and military for night vision, surveillance, and navigation aid; by firemen and emergency rescue personnel for fire assessment, and for search and rescue; by the medical profession as a diagnostic tool; and by industry for energy audits, preventative maintenance, processes control and nondestructive testing. The basic premise of thermographic NDT is that the flow of heat from the surface of a solid is affected by internal flaws such as disbonds, voids or inclusions.
