Conductivity measurements for pharmaceutical applications

Valmet conductivity sensors are ideal for steaming in place (SIP) control. Our conductivity sensors are extremely resistant to rapid temperature changes thanks to unique design. We guarantee our conductivity sensor keeps on measuring accurately, year after year. We have installation that has measured five years - without need for calibration.

Valmet sensors are available with 3.1 material certificate, calibration certificate, surface roughness certificate and EHEDG certificate.

Valmet has a number of special sensors for water for injection (WFI)/ ultra-pure water (UPW) measurements. Our extremely reliable sensors make sure there are no un-scheduled production shut downs. All Valmet sensors pharmaceutical applications fulfill EHEDG requirements for material, surface roughness and steam cleaning.

EHEDG certified sensors

 

The following Valmet sanitary sensors have been EHEDG Type EL Class 1 certified. All wetted surfaces fulfill the hygienic requirement of surface roughness Ra ˂ 0,8 µm. The steel parts are made from AISI316L and plastic (Teflon) fulfills EU and FDA requirements on materials used in contact with food.  

 

The conductivity sensors have pressure rating of 12 bar at 150 °C. All Valmet conductivity products are designed to withstand fast temperature changes. The structure is very simple and all sensitive components are located far from the measurement head. Each sensor is heat treaded during production to make sure the changing temperature has no effect on sensor accuracy.
