Rugged Washdown Inductive Sensors Monitor Position of Control Valves During Dairy-Product Processing

During manufacture of dairy products, raw milk travels between successive processes through stainless-steel pipework. Rotary-shaft control valves maintain process sequences correctly, ensuring that no cross-contamination occurs during CIP cleaning after each batch is completed. Robust washdown inductive sensors, mounted on existing rotary actuators, monitor control-valve status around the clock, providing real-time positional feedback to a…

Durability in harsh environments; Full Inox Extreme inductive sensors confirm engagement of safety locks on hooklift trucks

A hooklift truck utilizes a hydraulic system for loading and unloading a demountable container. Once the container is correctly positioned on the vehicle’s load bed,  interlock bolts engage with its base, locking it into position. Rugged sensor systems detect full engagement of the interlocks, ensuring the truck is safely loaded prior to driving away. Sensors…
