The first patented digital jet monitor for cleaning systems - VARIPURE Sensor SMW 100 by GEA Tuchenhagen

(PresseBox) (Büchen, ) The SMW 100 is a digital sensor for monitoring jets in cleaning systems. This is the first sensor worldwide that is able to detect every single jet in the cleaning process.

It enables the user to control several monitoring processes in various expansion stages of the overall plant. An integration period of approx. 20 seconds allows us to monitor the operation of the cleaner. If no jet passes the sensor during this period, the sensor's output signal switches off and the sensor signals that the cleaner is stationary.

Another function is made possible by change-over in the sensor. Each jet that is registered is then signalled by setting the sensor output, so that, if the user wishes, each jet can be detected by downstream electronics. This makes it possible to monitor the cleaning path and hence the entire cleaning process. Alternatively, it is also possible to detect a blocked nozzle.

All in all, a detection method that has not been feasible so far. The technical design is based on a patented process.
