  • Variable Area
  • Positive displacement
  • Turbine
  • Magnetic Flow
  • Vortex
  • Coriolis

Specific areas of expertise:

  • Measuring Spirit / Whisky

We have installed hundreds of meters in the Scotch Whisky industry to measure spirit / whisky volumes.

The meters are used in cask filling, vat to vat transfer, or tanker loading / unloading.

ALL of our metering installations have received Custom and Excise approval as meeting their accuracy requirements.

  • Caramel

Caramel is added to whisky to achieve a uniform colour. Meters used with batch controllers allow the accurate addition of caramel to achieve uniform colour.

  • Strength reduction.

Depending on the stage in the process, Spirit often has to be reduced in strenght ( % Alcohol)

This is achieved by adding a precise quantity of (reduction) water to the spirit. Accurate metering is esential for this duty.
