Compact Sensors Meet Food and Beverage Standards

A new line of sensors/transmitters designed for hygienic applications in the food and beverage industry has with a compact form factor that lets manufacturers minimize downtime and lower production costs.

The new transmitters include the Rosemount 326P Pressure, Rosemount 326T Temperature, Rosemount 327T Temperature, and Rosemount 326L Level instruments

The 326P Pressure device is for hydrostatic level measurement on fermenter tanks, storage tanks and silos, as well as static pressure measurements on pipes or near pumps to ensure line pressures are within tolerances. The 326T and 327T Temperature devices monitor process temperature, an important factor in all steps of food and beverage processing such as fermenting and pasteurizations, storage tank temperature, and ensuring processes are within FDA approved limits for an effective cleaning cycle. The 326L Level transmitter keeps product lines running and reduce downtime by monitoring the level in small- to medium-sized storage, holding or buffer tanks.

All components comply with 3-A and FDA specifications, and are available with nine common industry process connections to ensure the right fit for new tanks and pipe fittings, as well as the capability to be retrofit on legacy systems. The small transmitters also can be mounted in tighter locations common on packaging machinery. Conventional 4-20 mA outputs and IO-Link connectivity make the transmitters easy to integrate with automation systems.
