October 15, 2018 — Emerson unveiled a line of transmitters designed specifically for hygienic applications in the food and beverage industry
The line of transmitters—Rosemount 326P Pressure, Rosemount 326T Temperature, Rosemount 327T Temperature and Rosemount 326L Level instruments—are designed to operate in the hygienic environments required by food and beverage manufacturers:
- Rosemount 326P Pressure – This transmitter is used for hydrostatic level measurement on fermenter tanks, storage tanks and silos, as well as static pressure measurements on pipes or near pumps to ensure line pressures are in tolerance.
- Rosemount 326T Temperature and Rosemount 327T Temperature – These transmitters monitor process temperature, an extremely important factor in all steps of food and beverage processing such as fermenting or pasteurizations, storage tank temperature, or ensuring clean-in-place processes are within FDA approved limits for an effective cleaning cycle.
- Rosemount 326L Level – To keep product lines running, this transmitter will monitor continuous level in small- to medium-sized storage, holding or buffer tanks.
All comply with 3-A and FDA specifications, and are available with nine common industry process connections to ensure the right fit for new tanks and pipe fittings, as well as capability to be retrofitted on legacy systems. The transmitters also can be mounted in tighter locations common on packaging machinery. Conventional 4-20 mA outputs and IO-Link connectivity help the transmitters to integrate with automation systems.
These new transmitters expand Emerson’s food and beverage offering. Emerson’s food & beverage portfolio also includes Pervasive Sensing solutions and Plantweb Insight analytics for steam traps and pumps, which allows manufacturers to harness digital transformation to further realize operational improvements.
