PPL6 Hygienic sanitary temperature probe

PPL6-P PRT with Hygienic Process Connection

Our PPL6-P temperature sensor has your choice of industry standard sanitary connection fitted to interface directly with your process. Ideal for demanding applications such as Dairy, Brewing and Pharmaceutical. The sensor is suitable for the measurement of liquids and gases across a wide temperature range. All sensors are made to order so it is generally possible to meet all of your requirements.

All wetted parts of the probe are fabricated from 316 stainless steel and are TIG welded in our own workshop. The process of TIG welding gives a very clean consistent weld which is closely inspected to ensure there are no pits or crevices which may form dirt traps. We can manufacture your probe to almost any stock diameter with both metric and imperial sizes readily available. Most customers use 6mm but others are just as easy to provide from 3mm upwards.

The connection type is the choice of our customer and we generally supply whatever is needed to fit directly to the connections you already have fitted on your equipment. All we need to know is the pipe size and the fitting specification, we will do the rest. We stock the most common types such as Tri-Clamp, RJT and IDF. We don’t normally supply the seals or clamps but are happy to do so should this be necessary.

We stock a variety of terminal heads that cover all eventualities. The most popular for our hygienic sensors is 316 stainless steel. We do however also offer other materials such as Aluminium Alloy, ABS, Nylon and FDA approved Polypropylene. Most of the our terminal heads have IP ratings of IP67 or IP68.

We can fit a number of options inside the terminal heads that best fit your requirements. The simplest is a terminal block allowing you to connect directly to the sensor. Alternatively we can supply temperature transmitters with either a 4-20mA or a 0-10V output. Other options include intrinsically safe transmitters or those with HART protocol. We can also fit in head displays if required.

The PPL6 is also available as a thermocouple sensor. We are also able to supply the probe with your choice of thermistor sensor.

We offer a comprehensive calibration service and a wide choice of accessories.
