Hygienic level measurement!

Siemens has developed a new hygienic encapsulated antenna with a measuring range of up to 20 meters for the Sitrans LR250 radar level transmitter. Its lens is made of TFM PTFE (next- generation polytetrafluoroethylene), a special feature that makes the antenna fit for use in hygiene-sensitive applications. The user benefits from minimal maintenance and easy cleaning.

The encapsulated antenna comes with a TFM 1600 PTFE lens which has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and certified in accordance with the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) Class VI. It also complies with the 3-A sanitary standard and has been approved by the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) for use in hygienic applications.

A selection of 17 standard hygienic process connections is available for linking the antenna with the Sitrans LR250 radar level transmitter, making it fit for use in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries. Users will appreciate the antenna’s minimal maintenance requirement and ease of cleaning as the flushmounted lens antenna does not need to be removed for clean-in-place cycles.
