How can you effectively save resources?

To ensure food safety, systems in the food industry are cleaned several times per day. During phase separation in the CIP process, every second counts to ensure saving of valuable resources. The different liquids such as water, lye, and acid cost money, burden the environment, and should therefore be used as sparingly as possible. The CombiLyz® AFI conductivity sensor allows precise analysis and exact differentiation of fluid media. Based on the measured results, the PLC controls a precise phase separation of the media.


Each second counts

With the help of a conductivity sensor, it can be determined which medium is involved in the cleaning cycle at the time. It measures the electric conductivity very precisely and uses this as the basis to deduce the type of medium: for example milk, water, acid, or lye. In addition to the precision, the response time is also an important influencing factor for measurements. First most for the detection of the liquid to allow the controller to react quickly and secondly for the adjustment to changing temperatures.

Are you looking for speed?

The conductivity sensor CombiLyz® AFI offers you the solution

Thanks to the short reaction time of the temperature compensation, the control can react faster and separate the individual phases by actuating valves. This is especially important since the change in temperature also changes the conductivity of a medium. Ideally, a sensor should therefore measure not only the conductivity but also the temperature to compensate for any differences that affect the measurement results. Quicker cleaning cycles provide more time for the original purpose of the systems: the filling of liquids.

Short reaction time of the temperature compensation of only seconds

Your solution to more efficient cleaning processes

Precise and rapid differentiation of media during phase separation of the CIP cleaning process, thanks to the fast reacting, hygienic, and robust conductivity sensor CombiLyz®

The secret of the quick temperature compensation of the CombiLyz AFI is its sensor tip made of PEEK plastic with a one-piece hygienic design. It contains inductive sensor elements for measuring the electric conductivity and a fast-reacting temperature sensor. The sensor tip has a low thermal mass and a low thermal transition resistance, allowing the temperature sensor to react very quickly even to large temperature fluctuations.
