newsy-ozarksWe are pleased to have Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Bottling as one of our current customers in the beverage industry. They produce an exhaustive list of product SKUs including Coca-Cola®, Dr. Pepper®, V8® Juice, Dasani®, Full Throttle® energy drink and more at their production and warehouse facilities in Springfield, MO

Their production facility in Springfield began upgrading ingredient tanks by installing our new ES2 slimline transmitters in combination with our LevelBAR tank level indicators. This included welding in new flush mounting shells on a pair of heat jacketed 10,000 gallon Crepaco tanks that hold corn syrup.

We calibrated the various indicator scales in gallons for 55 Brix and 42 Brix densities used in their processing. It should be noted that the application includes tank gauging for the all-important Coca-Cola Syrup as well.

For the Ozarks application, it was important to have dedicated tank displays for quick and easy monitoring by production personnel. Our KING-GAGE LevelBAR indicator includes a custom marked readout scale that can be graduated in units of volume or weight for each tank. The KING-GAGE ES2 level transmitters at the tanks provide a direct 4-20mA signal to the indicators. Power to the transmitters is supplied by the LevelBAR indicators via the same twisted pair cable that conveys the signal.

Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr. Pepper Bottling Co. is one of only 72 remaining independent Coca-Cola bottlers and employs approximately 330 people. Thanks to their growth, perseverance, and commitment, Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Bottling Company was named the 2009 US Bottler of the Year by beverage industry publication, Beverage World. The company also operates an ambitious recycling program and has committed to using the most sustainable production methods possible.

Trademarks are the property of their respective owners, Coca-Cola Company, Dr Pepper/Seven Up Inc., CSC Brands LP.
