Depending on the products being made, many food and beverage processing facilities consume a lot of water. Beyond the actual processing usage, the facilities need water for a variety of utility purposes, including cleaning, heating and cooling systems, irrigation, and more. Decades ago, food and beverage processing facilities were less concerned with the volume of water or steam they were using so long as it didn’t impact production.

However, as water costs rise and sustainability becomes more front-of-mind, many facilities are urgently trying to measure and manage their utility fluid usage. In the process, they are running into a variety of challenges to reliable and accurate liquid and steam fluid measurement. This includes aging meters, having instrumentation in the wrong place, straight pipe requirements, maintenance, and more.

This article will review seven common challenges, including those that are unique to liquid fluid measurement and steam fluid measurement, as well as ideal solutions to those challenges.
