A certification under NSF/ANSI 169 as equipment for food products has been achieved by Titan Enterprises for its 800 Series turbine flowmeters and Beverage meter. This accreditation is especially important for manufacturers of food production and handling machinery who can now include an 800 Series or Beverage meter secure in the knowledge that it has met NSF-standards for food production.
NSF are an independent, accredited organisation, that test, audit and certify products to develop public health standards and certifications that help protect food, water, consumer products and the environment.
Trevor Forster, Managing Director of Titan Enterprises commented: “Increasingly food and beverage manufacturers wishing to meter production flow are requiring the assurance of NSF certification that the flow measurement devices they choose are completely compatible with their products.”
As part of the NSF-certification process Titan Enterprises were required to submit samples of the 800 Series and Beverage meter to NSF for analysis. The detailed analysis by NSF included a technical review, a materials review, physical evaluation and a literature/marking evaluation.
The supply chain for materials and components used in the 800 Series and Beverage meters was traced and needed certification of each element. In addition, NSF carried out a pre-audit check of Titan Enterprises UK production facility and control systems. To maintain its NSF listing, Titan Enterprises, as will all NSF listed companies, will be subject to further unannounced audits.
