SICK is marking the launch of its Industrial Instrument Division at PPMA 2009 with the unveiling of the LFV200 vibrating level sensor and PHT pressure transmitters for the food and beverage industry.

The hygiene-certificated instruments are the first to be released from the division, which will offer a range of level, pressure, flow and temperature instrumentation for the processing industries.

SICK’s LFV200 vibrating level sensor switch offers high reliability, on/off liquid or granular solid detection for level indication, or dry running protection in tanks and pipes independent of density, viscosity or electrical properties.

The hygiene certificated LFV200 designs are suitable for a range of food and beverage applications, providing reliable indication of product presence or absence.

The -40 to 150C temperature range enables it to withstand Clean-In-Place and Sterilise-In-Place procedures, and it comes with EHEDG and FDA approvals.

SICK’s PHT pressure transmitter series include absolute, gauge and compound pressure measurement and features a high sanitary design with a flush-mounted 316 stainless-steel diaphragm free of gaps and dead spaces.

The hygiene process connections include tri-clamp, DIN, ISO-clamp and Varivent connections, with 3-A sanitary standards and EHEDG certification pending.

Suitable for CIP and SIP cleaning, they will withstand temperatures to 150C.
