Sanitary Sensors that Deliver Accurate Data in Food and Pharma Industries
Having access to accurate pressure and temperature readings at all times is essential in hygienic processing environments such as the food and pharmaceutical industries. Regulatory requirements demand 24/7 product monitoring as well as extensive documentation of quality control processes.
Accomplishing this task means having accurate, reliable pressure, temperature and level measurement instruments in your production facilities, and setting up network infrastructure to support, and distribute and retain the data.
WIKA offers a complete line of accurate and reliable sanitary sensors, including a variety of pressure and level transmitters and a range of electrical thermometer temperature transmitters that have been designed exclusively for hygienic applications and meet 3A and EHEDG approvals.
Sanitary Sensors for Pressure and Level Measurement
WIKA Models IPT-10 and IPT-11
WIKA model IPT-10 and IPT-11 sanitary sensors are designed for use in the pharmaceutical, and food and beverage sectors. Available with a standard hygienic fitting or a flush diaphragm, these sanitary pressure sensors can be ordered with metallic or ceramic measuring cells in seven different housing variants. The transmitters are configured with a Device Type Manager (DTM) as a Field Device Tool (FDT).
WIKA Models UPT-20 and UPT-21
WIKA model UPT 20 and 21 sanitary sensors are commonly used in pharmaceutical, cosmetic, beverage and food industries. This type of pressure transmitter can be easily converted to meet hygienic standards by adding an applicable industry standard sanitary diaphragm seal. These sanitary sensors feature a large, rotatable multi-functional display, and easy, intuitive menu navigation.
WIKA Model SA-11
WIKA SA-11 sanitary sensors are certified to meet all 3A and EHEDG standards for pressure and level measurement in the food, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and cosmetic industries. These devices are designed for temperatures up to 300°F and are available in 1.5" and 2" Tri-Clamp® process connections, while offering 0.25% accuracy. The applied technology allows a full scale measuring span down to 100 inches of water column.
WIKA Model S-10-3A
The model S-10-3A sanitary pressure transmitter is designed for use in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic sectors. This sanitary sensor is 3A compliant and is available with a 3/4", 1.5" or 2.0" Tri-Clamp® process connection. An integral cooling extension element can also be added for high or low temperature applications.
WIKA Model DPT-10
WIKA’s DPT-10 provides differential pressure measurement for applications in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and food and beverage industries. This highly accurate pressure sensor features scalable measuring ranges, seven different housing variants, and meets or exceeds a variety of standards for use in hazardous areas. These differential pressure transmitters are configurable using a Device Type Manager (DTM) as a Field Device Tool (FDT).
WIKA Model F-20-3A
The model F-20-3A NEMA 4X pressure transmitter was designed to meet the rigorous standards of the sanitary industry. It is a popular choice in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and biotechnology sectors. Only FDA-approved system fill fluid is used. The transmitter can be ordered in standard pressure ranges from 15 psi up to 1500 psi and is available with a ¾” and larger Tri-Clamp® connection as well as additional industry standard connections.
Sanitary Sensors for Temperature Measurement
WIKA Model TR22-x Resistance Transmitter
The WIKA series TR22-x resistance transmitters are specifically designed for sanitary applications. With this award-winning RTD thermometer sensor, calibration is simplified thanks to a removable measuring insert. Materials and surface finish quality can be ordered to meet various standards. This sanitary sensor also features a hygienic stainless steel head that is easily cleanable in all mounting positions.
WIKA Model TR25 In-Line Resistance Transmitter
The model TR25 in-line resistance transmitter is one of WIKA’s most popular RTD temperature sensors. The design of this sanitary sensor completely eliminates dangerous dead spaces, presents zero obstructions to the process flow, and allows for rapid cleaning of the measuring point (supports SIP and CIP cleaning). Materials and surface finish qualities can be ordered to meet almost all pharmaceutical industry standards.
WIKA Model T53 Fieldbus Temperature Transmitter
WIKA model T53.10 fieldbus temperature transmitter with FOUNDATION™ and PROFIBUS® PA fieldbus communication can be used for temperature measurement with RTDs or thermocouples. The transmitter can output differential, average or redundancy temperature measurements. The small, explosion-proof model T53 temperature transmitter is compatible with all DIN form B connection heads.
