Shick Esteve’s Liquid Tote Systems store and transfer various liquid ingredients. The totes feed a reservoir where a pump draws ingredients and distributes them to one or more use points. When the tote is empty, the inline level switch sends a signal to a PLC or local indicator. The operator can replace the tote with a new one while the system continues to operate from the ingredients in the reservoir. Typical reservoir design provides additional changeover time without interrupting production.
