Sensors for use in food applications that can withstand CIP cleaning and deliver accurate, reliable measurements.
Today's food and beverage processing industries rely heavily on online measurements in order to guarantee quality and consumer safety of their products. Equipment has to be rugged and easy to maintain. It needs to withstand aggressive, high temperature chemicals or steam that are used to ensure proper hygienic conditions of the production process.
Typical parameters for electrochemical online measurements in liquids are pH, dissolved oxygen, ORP, and conductivity. The medium extends from pure process water used both as product ingredient and for cleaning purposes, through many intermediate steps of food and beverage production to waste water disposal at the end of the process.
