New OPTITEMP Hygienic Temperature Sensors for the Food and Beverage Industry

22 Oct 2020  |
KROHNE introduces the new line of OPTITEMP TRA-H6x/-C6x temperature sensors. Designed for hygienic applications in the food and beverage industry, the devices come with 3A, FDA and EHEDG approvals.

The new line includes standard temperature assemblies and compact designs, featuring a fast responding sensor tip with reduced heat conducting error for high accuracy at short immersion depths. They can be ordered with replaceable Pt100-inserts, or non-replaceable Pt100 for even faster response. All devices are designed vibration proof and rated IP69.

Process connection options include a modular adaptive system using G½ hygienic process connection as basis, both in versions “steel to steel” & “steel to PEEK”. A broad variety of hygienic process adapters is also available. For the US market, a welded clamp connection in two sizes is available; the 3A approval for clamp sensors is in preparation.
