Sensor experts Baumer will be presenting clever solutions for the food and beverage industry at the yearly Anuga Foodtec trade fair taking place in Cologne, April 26th – 29th.
Amongst other products, Baumer will be premiering a world first – the PAD20 sensor has been designed to save resources, enhance food safety and prevent production downtime thanks to an innovative new measuring principle.
The PAD20 reliably reports when transport containers are empty; hence defining the perfect point in time for container exchange in applications such as yogurt production. Whilst the principle may sound simple, the technology behind it is more complex. The sensor detects tiny bubbles of gas and air in the process medium, preventing pumps from dry-running and helping to decrease plant downtime. This will increase plant efficiency and cut down on product loss.
As well as the PAD20, Baumer will be unveiling the new durable, high precision, PAC50 process sensor. This sensor is able to reliably measure conductivity at temperatures exceeding 130 degrees celsius. Aimed at smaller production lines in the food and beverage industry, the PAC50 utilises its compact design and streamlined sensor tip to reduce flow resistance, optimising its use in such applications.
Similar to other Baumer sensors, the PAC50 features IO-Link as standard, enabling it to collect secondary data such as temperature for process monitoring and communications with the controller. The Dual Channel feature allows users to operate PAC50 via analog or digital channels, or even both in parallel. This way, Baumer offers maximum flexibility and higher investment security.
Baumer will be found at Booths A038 and B039 in Hall 7.1 at Anuga FoodTec
