Steam injected pasteurization systems produce high amounts of shock and vibration.
Temperature control is critical for proper elimination of bacteria. Improper pasteurization can result in total loss of product.
CIP processes involve multiple cycles of hot and cold liquids to ensure adequate cleaning. This thermal shock can cause temperature instruments to drift, bringing measurement uncertainty into question.
Cold storage vessels
Condensation seen in cold storage tanks can cause ingress in traditional "head chamber / hockey puck" transmitters.
Temperature control is critical for product quality.
Every tank has multiple points of measurement, including temperature, level, pressure, conductivity, etc. Each instrument requires wiring and signal processing for production operation.
