Sanitary RTD - Resistance Temperature Detectors
RS style resistance temperature detector sensor probes with sanitary connections are commonly used in the food and dairy industries. These fittings are welded to the stainless steel sheath and polished to meet 3-A Sanitary Council Standards. The highly polished finish prevents the growth of bacteria or other corrosive accumulation that might otherwise develop on standard assembly connections.
There are various fitting sizes and styles available. Care must be taken to ensure that the correct fitting is specified. In addition to the sanitary fittings, typical RTD sanitary temperature probes are equipped with an FDA compliant thermoplastic head, which is gasketed and suitable for wash down applications.
