The Food Grade IP69 On-line Moisture and Oil Sensor (MCT469-SF) features a rugged IP69-rated enclosure that withstands complete washdowns for years of reliable operation and is completely dust tight. The sealed enclosure gives users the ability to clean the sensor in place, reducing washdown prep time. The easy-to-use, NEMA 4, touchscreen UI is also water resistant and can be mounted adjacent to the production line to inform operators of the need for process adjustments. A sanitary design with no niches for debris accumulation or microorganism ingress reduces residue buildup and enables efficient, thorough cleaning over the life of the sensor. Additional food-grade components for ensuring food safety and adherence to industry regulations include a 316 stainless-steel enclosure, sapphire sight window, and FDA 21CFR177.2600-conforming gaskets. It easily connects to closed-loop control systems or local alarms and eliminates the need for time-consuming lab testing.
