Process Instruments & Controls

In our working life, the controls systems have gone from analogue to digital. This has improved e.g.

  • Food safety
  • Traceability of products
  • Production economy

 It might be important to point out that this improvement did not come by coincident, but using generations of experience and development.

Is the keyword to all control system, Mejeriet has never been involved in the manufacturing of IT equipment but been involved in providing the background knowledge enabling PLC controls to run a production.

When you buy a piece of equipment, e.g. a Pasteuriser the degree of automation has already been taken by the manufacture of the equipment, but you can still decide how much automatic you want on tanks, valves, pumps, etc.


Do you need equipment for Process controls -- Mejeriet can provide you with the components to set up an efficient flow line

Based on the ID numbers below. Mejeriet shall be pleased to quote you the equipment you need.
