Microingredient batching systems: Matching the automation level to your needs

In glass manufacturing, adding 1 part in 20,000 of cobalt oxide will color the glass the desired distinctive blue. Slightly varying the amount of this concentrated, costly microingredient will produce the wrong shade of blue glass, creating quality control problems and increasing production costs. The challenges of choosing a cost-effective batching system that can accurately and consistently add a microingredient to a large batch aren't confined to the glass manufacturing industry. If you add an active microingredient to a pharmaceutical product or dispense a seasoning into a dry soup mix, you're probably facing the same problems.
