3-A approved electromagnetic flow sensor

February 13, 2006

The OPTIFLUX 6000 electromagnetic flow sensor is an ideal solution for all hygienic applications in the pharmaceutical industry having recently received 3-A Sanitary Rating 28-03. Fully suitable for simple and effective SIP and CIP, the flow sensor offers cleaning temperatures (depending on the process connection) up to 300 degrees F. Operating in conjunction with the IFC 300 flow converter, the flow sensor offers a completely sanitary design in the highest quality stainless steel. With mesh support and an improved design with calculated stress points, the flow sensor maintains its shape through all operating conditions. The unique L-shaped gasket design with an innovative expansion chamber prevents expansion of the gasket into the measuring tube due to unidirectional compression.
