Sanitary Temperature Sensors:
are among the most fundamental measuring instruments for monitoring and controlling production processes or CIP/SIP processes
in the food and pharmaceutical industry. Anderson-Negele’s line of temperature sensors ensure efficient processes and sustainable quality with the highest precision and short response times when measuring temperatures and temperature changes in liquid media in many applications, including breweries, dairies, beverage and wine production and in the pharmaceutical industry.
Sanitary design / sanitary materials of RTDs(Resistance Temperature Detector) and temperature sensors
The high-quality Anderson-Negele temperature sensors and gauges are manufactured completely in stainless steel. For applications in the food industry quality class 1.4404 (316L) is used, and for pharmaceutical applications 1.4435 (316L) is used. Due to their extremely robust and durable design, the sensors can withstand extreme mechanical stresses such as vibrations and pressure shocks that occur repeatedly in many applications in practice.
Process adaptations / Installation of the RTDs (Resistance Temperature Detector) and temperature sensors
Anderson-Negele offers a wide range of process connections to ensure extensive flexibility when it comes to installation in new plants or retrofitting in existing processes, tanks, or pipes. In addition to temperature sensors with Tri-Clamp connection or O-ring seals, there are also versions that allow for installation without a process opening and can be used in pipelines with very small diameters. Most configurations meet Sanitary design specifications such as EHEDG, 3-A, and FDA.
Versions / Performance of RTDs and temperature sensors
Anderson-Negele RTD’s (Resistance Temperature Detector) and Temperature Transmitters differentiate themselves with their application specific designs. The food and beverage models offer robust all stainless steel package design to ensure a long life in harsh environments. The life sciences models meet industry requirements for surface finish as well as device certifications and documentation. Anderson-Negele offers the broadest range of probe sizes and fittings within the sanitary market.
Also available are several specialized temperature indicators. The FD digital reference thermometer
was designed for use in a legal pasteurization system, meeting all requirements of the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance. This device may also be utilized on retort cookers where remote mounted displays add operator safety. Reading of process variables is removed from dangerous areas.
FH digital temperature gauges
offer a standalone battery operated drop in replacement for old style mercury-in-glass thermometers on retort cookers. Digital display also simplifies gathering of process data during critical cook cycles.
This advanced sensor is specifically designed to monitor and control Clean In Place chemical concentrations to optimize cleaning and protect against chemical over-use, which can damage equipment.
Optional additional equipment of the TFP temperature sensors
The standard version of the temperature meters ensures precise measurement of liquid media from 0°F to 300°F. Certain models are available with a range of -50°F to 350°F. For visual monitoring at the measuring point the sensor is equipped with LCD display with digital temperature indication in °C or °F.
