Baumer Holding AG (Switzerland) - With TER8 temperature sensors, Baumer adds yet another high-end product to their portfolio. The compact sensor based on RTD technology is especially designed for applications with demanding requirements on measuring accuracy and stringent hygienic standards. It is available both for front flush installation and in two variants with an immersion sleeve. With all wetted parts fully made of PEEK, TER8 stands out from products currently available on the market.
Based on the TE2 series, TER8 adopts the proven mechanical and electromechanical properties of this product family. The compact TER8 sensor housing fits even into tight spots difficult to access.
The sophisticated installation concept forgoing any elastomers but yet 3A and EHED compliant ensures optimum hygienic capabilities free from maintenance while also cutting down on maintenance and downtime.
The sensor in its front flush variant allows for direct process integration, regardless of agitators or any other inside tank assemblies. This mounting versatility allows for reliable temperature detection even from previously infeasible mounting positions. It will speed up the process, enhance process control and save manufacturing resources while improving product quality.
The front flush variant also plays to its strengths when installed in pipelines. Very low-impact in media flow, it permits the use of pigs. Contrary to similar sensors with metal sensor inserts, there are no sealing points in the process. Hermetical sealing towards the process in particular prevents the ingress of steam.
This ensures absolute reliability and long-life capabilities, especially in SIP processes. The specialized insulation between sensing element and housing isolates the media temperature to be measured from ambient impacts and ensures reliable measured results.
First customer testimonials have confirmed that the innovative TER8 design has closed another gap in process control.
