Sanitary gauges for the measurement of both temperature and pressure are
available in a limitless number of standard and special sizes, ranges and arrangements, to
suit any process requirement. The menu of features include dial size, range, fitting,
mounting direction, fill, finish and materials as well as a myriad of options.
Sanitary transmitters and transducers have become the equipment of
choice for most control engineers, allowing incredible flexibility when used with PLC's
and microprocessors. Available for virtually all requirements including temperature,
pressure, level and flow, transmitters or transducers can be self or loop powered with
varying outputs (the most common is 4-20 mA) to suit the input requirements when connected
to control, recording or monitoring hardware. Transmitters are invaluable in assisting
with the necessary requirements of today's QA/QC and validation. Many units are available
with the flexibility of digital communication via the "Hart" protocol.
Sanitary instrument fittings are available for use in piping and process
equipment to improve the cleanliness and accuracy of available instruments. Designed to be
compatible with the stringent requirements of sanitary and sterile processing, these
fittings reduce "dead" areas and product entrapment while aiding with
cleanability and validation.
Used either with PLC's or as "stand alone" units, process
controllers are compact reliable and easy to install and operate in most applications.
Receiving either transmitter or transducer inputs, process controllers can function in
virtually any arena easily and inexpensively handling level, temperature, pressure, flow
measurement, purity, TOC or differential applications.
Recording of data for future use and evaluation was once the sole realm
of circular chart units. Today, however, data can be direct recorded to round or strip
chart models or directly to PLC/computer hardware for data logging, trend analysis and all
manner of storage and retrieval. Stand-alone recorders are available with circular or
strip charts, varying inputs, multiple pens or functions and can be coupled with process
controllers for simple process applications.
In addition to transmitters and transducers, process monitoring can take
many forms from purity to flow measurement. Monitoring equipment from major suppliers such
as Anatel, Rosemount and Anderson is available. Please contact us with your specific
Sanitary thermowells are used to isolate components from the process
stream as well as for ease of removal for repair, calibration or replacement. Mounting
configurations include welded or sanitary fitting for sanitary applications or flanged and
threaded for non-sanitary applications. As with other components in process contact,
finishes and materials are available to fit most specifications.
I to P Converters
Current-to-pneumatic converters or transducers are an important part of
most control systems changing the electrical signals from controllers, PLC's and
transmitters into pneumatic signals able to operate valves and other air operated
