There are many manufacturing and processing industries that demand high levels of hygiene, such as the food and beverage industry and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Within the installations that operate in those sectors there will probably be a need to accurately measure and monitor the pressure of fluids and gasses, which is where the need for a dependable pressure sensor comes in. The pressure sensors will of course need to guarantee that they can withstand demanding cleaning schedules, won’t trap and harbour processing media traces and are as accurate, robust and dependable as possible. Baumer are renowned for their impressive pressure sensor portfolio and they have the ideal sensor solution for demanding applications.
The PP20H Hygienic Pressure Sensor
With its modular design, pressure ranges from –1 to 40 bar and a wide array of process connections the PP20H Hygienic Pressure Sensor series from Baumer is of a fully welded stainless steel construction and features a condensation-resistant silicon measuring cell. This top-spec Pressure Sensor can be configured from a wide range of parameters to suit your process requirements including measuring range, accuracy, type of pressure, output signal, process connection and more. Available optionally with IOLink, (in parallel with 4 … 20 mA) they meet the high hygienic requirements of the food and pharmaceutical industries and are CIP and SIP-capable.
Excellent temperature and long-term stability coupled with high accuracy guarantee the safe monitoring, operation and control of demanding hygienic processes in a humid environment, even with frequent temperature cycles.
- Small form factor means greater flexibility
- The pressure sensors cover a wide media temperature range from –20 °C to 125 °C without a bespoke cooling line. More compact, less space is required in the system.

IO-Link for Centralised Configuration
When an IO-Link option is utilised, this makes it possible to configure several pressure sensors simultaneously, simplifying switching point adjustment for different process stages and ultimately saving time and money. Data is the fundamental building block of process and product optimisation and using IO-Link ensures that valuable, additional data is accessible for analysis. Apart from the analogue 4 … 20 mA signal, further data such as cell pressure and pressure sensor temperature can be recorded. This process data can be used, for example, to determine the temperature of the medium being used. Further data that can help to identify the sensor can be loaded at any time using tags that can be configured individually.Enquire Now
