Application: Monitoring internal chamber and product temperatures up to 134° C during the sterilization process.
Customer Requirement: An RTD assembly was needed to monitor product temperature by piercing a sealed bottle. When not monitoring product temperature, the assembly was also used to monitor internal chamber temperatures.
Conax Design Solution: Conax provided a 3 wire, 100 ohm platinum RTD assembly with a 4″ long chisel point tip. The assembly consists of a sealed T3 termination, with 10 foot of treated silicone insulated cable that prevents moisture penetration, and a 0.125″ diameter 316SST sheath. The assembly offers ±0.12% ohms accuracy @ 0° C. A Conax PG2-187-A-V seals the cable exiting the chamber. This product, one of the available configuration options of the Conax “Sterisensor”, provided this customer with superior quality at a very competitive price. More than 500 units have been supplied over the past three years.
