OMEGA Increases Safety in Food and Personal Care Industry

A manufacturer of personal and household care products needed to maintain the temperature of the cleaning liquid within one degree Celsius of the target temperature, a difficult requirement given that the temperature of the operating environment could range from 20 to 85°C (68 to 185°F) The primary problem with this requirement was obtaining a method of accurately measuring the water’s temperature throughout the entire pipe. OMEGA Engineering installed a wireless temperature monitoring system, which included a series of temperature sensor probes located along the pipe that capture and transmit the temperature of the cleaning liquid. (For example, the RTD-to-wireless connector transmitter system has over 70 surface temperature sensors and a 48-channel receiver to receive the temperature data from these sensors; software then monitors this data and logs it in real time.) The desired temperature range of the water can also now be preset so that alarms can alert operators if the water temperature fluctuates beyond the acceptable range. The system is wireless, allowing temperature probes to be easily moved to other pipes as needed without installing or removing wiring.
