Metarom chooses Mettler Toledo for weighing solution

French food colour and flavour producer Metarom has partnered up with Mettler Toledo to gain access to its expertise and service in weighing and analytical solutions.

According to Mettler Toledo, Metarom’s production site in Boves, France, manufacturers flavourings, colourings and caramels in powder, glaze, water soluble and fat soluble liquid forms. Specailised workshops have been set up, each focusing on a different aspect of the process. But across all the different units, weighing remains constant.

Metarom has 14 storage tanks fitted with weighing sensors, including its raw ingredients workshop which uses Mettler Toldeo’s IND690 weighing terminals connected to XS scales.

Weighing capabilities are further provided by the floor-mounted 3 tonne weighing systems used to check the weight of large equipments, such as hoppers and blenders, while pallet truck scales help operators to measure items while on the move.

"I was looking for a weighing specialist that could work on equipment from different manufacturers with the necessary expertise to carry out metrological testing on compact balances, terminals, scales and tanks with built-in sensors," Mr Gumez, Metarom’s Boves maintenance and new works manager, said.
