Pressure sensors for challenging hygienic applications
11 June 2019
When pressure sensing is required in challenging hygienic applications the robust stainless steel PP20H sensors from Baumer are a tough and reliable, high-performance option.
Features including a robust IP69K rated stainless steel housing with a condensate-proof silicon measuring cell ensure not only optimum safety, but also flexibility for a variety of applications.
A scaled pressure range from -1 to 40 bar along with a wide choice of process connections means that the PP20H sensor is extremely versatile. It is also available with 4-20 mA signal and IO-Link connectivity and complies with the strict hygiene requirements in the food and pharmaceutical industries where CIP and SIP capability are essential.
The hermitically-sealed silicon measuring element is completely insensitive to moisture and condensate, even in applications where there are extreme temperature fluctuations and damp environments. This, together with excellent temperature and long-term stability combined with high accuracy, ensures that demanding hygienic processes are monitored, controlled and regulated safely and reliably.
This compact pressure sensor covers a wide media temperature range from -20º to 125ºC without the need for a cooling line, so less space is needed for installation. Also, a wide variety of applications can be covered by just one sensor model ensuring cost and space savings.
Several sensors can be simultaneously configured via IO-Link which simplifies switching point adjustment for different process stages at start-up, or batch changes saving time. Diagnostic data can be instantly called up and evaluated, which helps to increase system availability.
