Anderson-Negele is a global instrumentation company with the mission to provide the best hygienic instrumentation solutions and services for processors of food, beverage and life sciences products. Today Anderson-Negele serves thousands of customers globally and works with OEMs and System integrators to produce unique solutions for novel applications.
Each of our employees focuses on sanitary solutions that fulfil our role as “guardians” of safe food, beverage and life sciences processing. Our products for temperature, pressure, flow and analytical measurement are designed for the processing of products you eat, drink, inject, or rub on your skin, meeting 3-A, EHEDG and BPE design standards. As part of the Fortive Group of companies – a global “Fortune 500“ technology leader – Anderson-Negele practices the successful Fortive Business System (FBS). With the help of FBS, we ensure the high quality of our products in development and production and continuously improve our processes and methods.
Sanitary pressure sensors, digital pressure gauges and pressure transmitters for process monitoring are used in a variety of applications in the food and life science industries.
In almost all production processes in dairies, breweries, the beverage industry, wine production, juice production and other food plants, pressure gauges and sensors for pressure measurement make a significant contribution to ensuring the function and efficiency of the processes and guaranteeing the quality of the products. High-precision monitoring of the process pressure as well as reliable protection against contamination during the running process are decisive criteria in such applications. In the life science industry, even higher demands are placed on material quality and often also on precise adherence to the specified pressure specifications, which are met by special pressure devices for pharmaceutical and biotechnical applications. Versions are also available for very low pressures, for very high pressures, for differential pressure or remote pressure measurement.
being mechanical pressure sensors with display, transmit the measured value in analog or digital form directly to an on-site display. There are also pressure gauges with switching output which, as analog pressure switches or digital pressure switches, can transmit the measured value for process control or as an alarm signal to the PLC control center.
Electronic pressure transmitters:
work with an internal piezoelectric signal converter. They can indicate the measured value in a display, transmit it to the PLC or process it in their intelligent electronic unit itself with other measured data such as temperature. This means that for any requirement a suitable measurement technology with convenient data detection, processing and transmission is available. Another differentiation is the material used for the pressure diaphragm or pressure cell.
Stainless steel diaphragms:
These are used in most versions of Anderson-Negele pressure sensors. Depending on the application and medium, the stainless-steel grade and surface roughness can be selected individually.
Ceramic measuring cells:
Alternatively, pressure sensors with ceramic diaphragm are available. These offer advantages especially for applications with high pressure surges.
Anderson-Negele pressure sensors are developed according to the "SANITARY BY DESIGN" principle and comply with the principles and specifications of institutions and organizations such as 3-A, FDA or EHEDG with regard to the criteria for non-dead-leg installation, clean-ability, material quality and handling.
