Measurement technology plays a crucial role in food production. In most cases, the measuring devices are integrated into the system using standard T-pieces. The disadvantage here is the creation of dead spaces in which product residues can accumulate and cannot be removed or can only be removed with difficulty even through cleaning.
A far better solution is in-line measurement technology. The in-line design completely avoids dead spaces. Some of the advantages that arise from this are due to the easier cleanability. Downtime can be reduced due to easier and faster cleaning, as well as the consumption of water, energy and cleaning agents. It follows that the use of in-line measurement technology can save significant costs and increase product safety.
Typical applications in the food industry for in-line pressure or temperature measuring devices are inlet and outlet lines, filtration and CIP systems.
